About Us

From being predominantly a Timber Merchants and Joinery Manufacturers back in 1888, the company has expanded and diversified its operation. Today Andersons is known as a leading supplier, importer and manufacturer of kitchens, doors, floors, timber and timber products.

We introduced fitted kitchens at Carlisle branch in the 1970s, and have never looked back. It was a new concept in home improvement and Andersons pioneered, this, now highly competitive sector and the main stay of our sales still come from recommendations and referals.

Success and loyalty go hand in hand and in two of our outlets we have staff who have been with the company for over 30 years proving our unique working relationship not only benefits the customer, but rewards the staff for their considerable efforts.

Our customers are extremely loyal too, and we are now fitting kitchens for the third generation of the same families.

We were one of the first to move away from horse drawn transport and into the world of internal combustion. That spirit of embracing the latest, greatest technology continues to thrive here today.
