Independent Joinery Business


Business Description:

An opportunity has arisen to acquire a fast-growing independent joinery business based in the South-East of London. Silk Letting Ltd is pleased to be welcoming to the market the only joinery in Erith, and a brilliant one at that! The profitable business was established in 2018 when the current owner noticed a gap in the industry and the need for joineries. Currently, the owner is willing to travel within a 100-mile radius to reach their customers, resulting in high customer satisfaction and a wide range of potential clients. The business markets itself through word of mouth recommendations resulting in a lack of website and social media accounts. This would certainly suit an owner who is looking to expand and inject passion into a well-established business.


Services and Products:

This unique business is known for their professional services which has built a large and loyal customer base across South-East London. They design and produce bespoke timber products for both commercial and domestic clients. The business works closely with designers and architects to produce top-end, high-quality veneer products whether that be large wall panels for lobby areas, impressive conference tables or authentic pieces of original furniture.

Product List:

  • Windows
  • Hardwood Doors
  • Furniture
  • Kitchens
  • Carpentry
  • Heritage Joinery Work
  • Staircases



Situated only an hour out of Central London, the business is placed in the centre of Erith on a private and extremely secure industrial estate. This provides ample parking around the building making the property easily accessible to both the owner and the potential customers. The industrial estate is well served by the A206 road running parallel alongside the property.

Within 1 mile:


  • Peareswood Primary School
  • Howbury Pre-School and Day Care

Reason for Sale:

The workshop is split into two main areas with a private office and toilet facilities. The property is very well-equipped with tools including band saws, spindle moulders and much more. In addition to this, the manufacturing equipment is in excellent condition and significant expansion is possible on the current site.
