CD UK delighted to be new Corporate Member of The Furniture Makers

Last month I attended a ceremony at the Furniture Makers' Hall in the City of London where CD UK was welcomed as the Company's latest Corporate Member.

To get the opportunity to join the British furnishing industry's central organisation, charity and patron and sit alongside names such as John Lewis and B&Q was too good an opportunity to pass up.

The future is solid surface

The furniture industry is quickly recognising the benefits of solid surface. The woodworking and joinery skills that furniture makers have are easily translatable into the fabrication of Corian®. Indeed, many of our existing customer-base are bespoke kitchen manufacturers, bespoke furniture manufacturers and cabinetmakers.

Putting CD UK and Corian® itself at the heart of the Furniture Makers as the industry's main organisation is an important step for us in getting solid surface recognised and welcomed by the industry and enables us to forge closer ties with its members.

Students are the Future

The Furniture Makers has recently started developing the work it does with the industry's student community and this fits perfectly with the direction that CD UK is taking as we have recently obtained certification for our fabrication and installation courses so that any fabricators or installers trained by CD UK will have gained evidence towards passing the City and Guilds Level 2 Diploma in Furniture, Interiors and Wood Machining Unit 229 Fit and Fix Worksurfaces through Webs Training.

At the same time we are starting a link-up with the Material Design degree course being run by nearby Huddersfield University.

Each year the Furniture Makers takes students on a tour of the country to give them an insight into how the industry works and CD UK looks forward to welcoming next year's students to Morley.
