Our Dedicated Workforce

We have over 80 skilled and dedicated men and women working here at Bradnam Joinery and we are very proud to say that over half of our work force have been with us for 10 years or more and almost a fifth for 20 years or more!   Last month our Financial Director, Lynn Kowalski, presented a beautiful Rotary watch as a long service award to Alan Pearson. Alan has been with us since 1997 and has spent the whole of the past 20 years working in our Veneer Department.   Our Managing Director, Bob Spittle, joined Bradnams on 11th July 1977 as a fresh faced 16 year old. He was a hard worker and quickly rose through the ranks to become a Foreman and then a Manager. When the original owner of Bradnam Joinery, Jack Bradnam, wanted to retire, Jack sold the company to his daughter and four of his managers, including Bob. Two managers later left the company, one retired and, as you may remember, Vic Dashwood sadly died, leaving Bob as the sole owner.  Next month marks Bob’s 40th anniversary at Bradnam Joinery.
