The appointment of Andrew comes after two years of working within the British Woodworking Federation Council, which allows member organisations to guide the future direction and work of the BWF.  During that time, he has been instrumental in raising the profile of the woodworking sector and highlighting how it can support the construction economy.


“This is a great opportunity and I look forward to taking on a more active role in the strategic direction of the woodworking industry, building on the excellent work of those within the Board and its Executive team,” said Andrew.


Helen Hewitt, Chief Executive Officer for the BWF, said: “Andrew has shown great drive and commitment to furthering the use of British joinery as a durable, sustainable and innovative design solution as well as inspiring the next generation to enter the industry.  We look forward to his active contribution in the future.”


Gowercroft Joinery is a locally-owned business, which has been rooted in Derbyshire for its whole 20-year history. The company employs 46 people and is committed to investment in the local economy through its programme of apprentices and trainees. 


A leading light in demonstrating the core values of the BWF through design innovation, craftsmanship and the highest standards of performance and customer care, the company won the “Best Windows” category of the prestigious 2017 Build It Awards for the pioneering design quality of its Winston and Richmond Heritage windows, as well as claiming the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ prize in the 2017 British Woodworking Federation’s (BWF) awards.


Gowercroft also had products prominently featured on the RIBA Stirling Prize Shortlist 2017, RIBA London Building of the Year 2017, RIBA National Building of the Year 2017 and the BBC List of Best Buildings 2017.
