Our Story

Founder and director Jack Trench trained in industrial design and worked at an architectural practice before setting up Jack Trench Ltd in 2003. Since then the company has maintained its original ethos of delivering high-end joinery and bespoke kitchens and has developed into a growing team of cabinet-makers, site fitters, designers and studio staff. Though we work mainly in London and the UK, we have also completed projects throughout Europe.


The company’s co-director Edd Thurston is Head of Design and Production; together, Edd and Jack oversee the day-to-day operations of the studio and workshop.

Our design team uses SolidWorks, a CAD software programme that is more commonly used in product design and mechanical engineering. The use of SolidWorks in our design processes gives us the ability to create kitchens with a particularly high degree of attention to both technical and constructional detail.


We moved to our current workshop premises in 2006. In 2011 we became Corian-accredited fabricators and this has enabled us to develop its use in numerous joinery applications. Our first showroom in Islington was opened in 2015 and we recently moved to our new showroom in Clerkenwell in June 2017.
