Ashton & Coleman was established in 2014. The company simply grew out of a mutual passion for woodworking. Creating something of quality and beauty lies at the heart of the business.
Simon and Peter have known each other for around 20 years. Their paths crossed more recently in 2011 at a local woodyard where they began to talk about becoming self employed and starting their own business's. Both Simon and Peter became self employed in early 2012, having previously worked for local furniture and interior companies. Both started off working in barns on local farms whilst trying to build up their business's. A need for more space led them separately to the Mill which is just a stones throw from where they both live with their young families in Two Dales. The coffee breaks got longer and longer until they realised they should just share a kettle and get on with the serious business of making a living. The company is growing from strength to strength and they have now taken on even more space at the Mill, comprising of 5000 sq ft of workshop, warehouse, and showroom. The team is also growing with the addition of 2 young apprentices who started in July 2017.
