DGM Joinery has been based at Linden Road in Clenchwarton, since opening in part of an old barn complex in 1981 and has steadily grown through recommendation with a well earned reputation for manufacturing and installing quality bespoke joinery.
The business has contiued to grow and the Clenchwarton premises have been expanded considerably, with increased workshop & storage space.
David Grange, whose early career was as a cabinet draughtsman, started D.G.M Joinery with John Mitchell and Jim Dabney, the trio being among the people made redundant by Dynatron on Christmas Eve 1980. Jim left D.G.M Joinery in 1993 and John retired in 1997 leaving David in sole control until he passed away in June 2012.
Much of the early work involved making hardwood frames for aluminium double glazing. One of the more unusual jobs involved making dummy windows for a warehouse, part of the scenery for the local shots of the film Revolution. This evolved into the company's own purpose-made windows & doors and following on from that, their own hardwood conservatories. Other items made to customer specification include reception counters and bars for the licensed trade along with a range of mouldings.
D.G.M Joinery does a lot of work on listed buildings and in conservation areas, producing items such as sash windows. The company has been on the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk's list of approved contractors for some years. Many trade customers are well-known companies in the King's Lynn area, but work can be carried out nationwide.
In March 2009, David's son Gary (Estimator & Surveyor), who has been with the company since 1992 and Shawn Chapman (Workshop Foreman), who started with the firm in 1999, joined David in partnership and look to take the company forward, increasing their product range and client base.
DGM Joinery was incorporated as a limited company in December 2012
During the company's history one thing remains unchanged that customer satisfaction still being extremely important today as it was over 30 years ago.
