About TS Booker and Son
In 1938, Thomas Booker, a local craftsman began producing specialist items of furniture in Wakefield.
After the Second World War, he resumed production and expanded his range to include fitted furniture for local authority buildings such as schools and colleges, whilst also undertaking private commissions.
The business expanded through the years, recruiting local craftsmen and training school leavers in the art of cabinet making.
TS Booker & Son developed as a family business until 1998 when the current Directors organised a management buy-in from the Booker family. Since 1998, TS Booker has developed it's manufacturing factory with the purchase of new machinery and has added an extension to the buildings.
The Staff Offices and Reception accommodation has been completely refurbished and also extended. The Development of an integrated project management and manufacturing computer system has saved the company £50k a year and dramatically improved our customer response times. In 2002 a new Director responsible for sales, marketing, design and project management was appointed.
This new appointment enabled TS Booker to develop further its Design and Project Management services, which now includes:
- Client consultations and site surveys.
- A planning, design and quotations service.
- Advice on current regulations.
- Project planning meetings with architects and builders.
We are now regularly commissioned to undertake full turn-key installations including:
- floor finishes
- suspended ceilings
- mechanical and electrical work
Interfacing and liasing with other contractors is also a day to day occurrence. TS Booker continues to employ local labour and still offers apprenticeships for those willing to develop.
