After trying nearly 20 jobs since leaving school, ranging from pizza maker to aircrew in the RAF, Richard Penny decided to start Oak By Design to take control. He wanted to learn how to develop a company, learn about construction industry and create a experience for his customers.
Starting with basic requests for fireplace beams, the company have invested significantly in the right staff and machinery to expand their portfolio to oak buildings, porches, flooring and doors.
Always situated in the Yorkshire area, Oak By Design can easily supply and fit a wide range of products. Further afield, the company regularly supplies oak framework and internal items to designers, builders and self builders throughout the country. Exporting goods to Europe and America have also been accomplished.
Over the last 20 years, Richard has created a team of strong, customer focused individuals, all wanting to grow the company.
Over time and through diversification, they now target the niche market of supplying high end, well designed and expertly constructed oak products.
Always applying the phase ‘put yourself in the customers shoes’ enables the company to produce success stories time and time again.
