B J Waller had a very interesting 2021, which has lined up an extremely exciting 2022 for the company and the joinery industry as a whole. 

Having been heavily involved with the launch and the growth of The Joinery Network over the past few years, MD Luke Piper and his team at B J Waller have learned a lot more about the industry and its requirements from a joinery manufacturer’s perspective. 

As part of The Joinery Network, B J Waller has helped numerous timber door and window manufacturers streamline their businesses, driving efficiencies and profit. Being part of this process has allowed the company to build great relationships and gain real insight directly from the people that matter. 

After listening hard then acting accordingly, B J Waller struck up a partnership with Smyth Group in September last year. Since this partnership was initiated, the companies have combined forces and have used a vast amount of industry knowledge and knowhow to create a full design, manufacture and supply package. These unique product ranges and services are designed specifically for manufacturers of timber windows and doors. 

B J Waller is proud to introduce the Cardea range of ironmongery to its portfolio of joinery-specific hardware. Available in six finishes – White Bronze, Polished Nickel, Satin Nickel, Dark Bronze, unlacquered Brass and Sherardised Black – the range is designed to allow the homeowner to create complete consistency throughout the property.  

Each finish has been created to complement a diverse range of architectural styles, from Georgian homes to barn conversions. B J Waller’s finishes are suitable for interior and exterior use, adding a rustic charm to timber windows and doors. 

“The new partnership with Smyth group not only sees the launch of Cardea, we are already at varying stages with other new product ranges that we will continue to bring to market throughout 2022 and into 2023,” comments MD, Luke Piper.

“Using our dedicated team of tool and pattern makers creating lost wax and metal tooling, and using the latest design software, we are able to create all of our designs in-house.

“Our products will benefit from the very latest sand and gravity casting facility; a forging operation creating metal tooling to produce incredibly accurate forgings, formed under 200 tons of pressure.”

Utilising a vast range of machining processes, including milling, linishing, grinding, CNC turning, drilling and tapping, these extraordinary pieces will be finished beautifully to complement the UK’s joinery manufacturers’ striking timber windows and doors.
