Thomas Ford and Sons design, craft and install bespoke, luxury kitchens and boot room furniture across London and the South East. They firmly believe the kitchen is the heart of the home, aiming to design “living rooms you cook in” by combining traditions styles with a fresh feel and high-spec finish. Having opened their own manufacturing plant this year, they are seeking funding to consolidate past loans and take on several new projects to continue expanding.

Living rooms you cook in.

Thomas Ford and Sons is based in Ripley, Surrey and founded by a father-son duo with a passion for home interiors, design and craftsmanship. We believe the kitchen is truly the heart of the home. Whether you are hosting a dinner party for ten, having a friend over coffee or helping your children do their homework while you cook dinner, you want a cosy, functional and inviting room to enjoy these precious moments in.

Our kitchens are the perfect solution. Each room is designed to meet our client’s particular requirements, with thoughtful features making them a joy to use. We design and craft beautiful cupboards, rather than fitted units, so our kitchens have a freestanding feel, creating a sense of space without forgetting the need for safety and practicality. We offer bespoke cabinets, pantries, worktops, island units, as well as boot and utility rooms, creating beautiful yet practical spaces. We have installed kitchens across London and the South East.

Our work speaks for itself so we gain a large proportion of our clients through word-of-mouth referrals and have been steadily growing since 2013. Because of the nature of this type of project work, we often have to cover some upfront costs before invoicing, therefore we have some loans we are seeking to consolidate. Moreover, we opened our own manufacturing plant this year and intend to use the raised funds to facilitate several new projects we have lined up in the coming months, to continue to expand the family business.

A. Hi Mark, thank you for your interest.
We have only taken out loans this year - to finance our new assembly plant and cover cash flow. Let me know if there is anything else you want to know

A. Hi Jakob, thank you for your interest. Yes we are down on sales over the last 12 months and I put this down without any hesitation to the Brexit uncertainty. Our Client base can deal with good news and bad news even, but absolutely hate uncertainty.
We have worked a lot on our gross profit margin over the last couple of years and we are seeing results. The kind of work we do mainly involves big extensions or renovations and can often mean to 18 months between originally quoting and order.
