Over five decades we have developed from a small family business operating out of a terraced house in south Bristol, to one of the most successful and respected joinery firms in the South West.
Sweet Joinery is the latest development in our company’s history. Led by Dan Sweet, this specialised joinery business continues the family tradition of producing high-quality work delivered with a personal touch.
It all began in 1974
That’s when Howard Sweet launched H Sweet and Sons, offering painting and decorating services to Bristol-based building contractors. During the 80s the company grew and added more services - including joinery - winning contracts with the likes of the Bristol Aeroplane Company (now Airbus) and Rolls Royce in Filton.
Enter the next generation
Howard’s grandson Dan joined the company in the early 2000s as a carpentry apprentice. As the business entered the new millennium they had the chance to work on exciting projects like the installation of oak floor and joinery for harbourside restaurant Bordeaux Quay and the conversion of Bristol’s Paintworks complex.
Taking a leap forward
The specialist joinery workshop opened in the summer of 2010. Dan and his team were soon working on projects including the refurbishment of Cathays library in Cardiff and Cheltenham Art Gallery. Then in April 2016, with an eye to the future, the workshop team delivery of a CNC Router, increasing our manufacturing capacity and enabling high-quality cutting of more elaborate designs at a lower cost and improved delivery speed.
A new chapter begins
And so here we are in the present day, with Sweet Joinery stepping out as a standalone company and Dan at the helm. Ready to serve even more customers with the dedication, knowledge and precision - not to mention personal touch - that has brought H Sweet & Sons so far. Howard has now retired but regularly checks in to ensure his grandson is delivering the same quality work that the family business has come to represent.
