Based in Dewbury, West Yorkshire, GB Projects Ltd have been an outsourcing partner to the commercial furniture manufacturing industry since 1973.

The personal creation of brothers David and Geoffrey Burrows, the company now known as GB Projects was conceptualised in 1973 following their time spent converting a former Royal Navy lifeboat into a gaff-rigged sailing cutter. They found the renovation such an enjoyable and rewarding success, the duo decided to put their skills to use full time. D & G Joinery was formed thanks to joiner David and engineer Geoffrey’s efforts and sometime later in 2000, after the firm had gone from strength to strength, it was incorporated as GB Projects.

The business has remained in the family, and, much to their pride, continues to grow and is now run by Geoffrey and his son Edward.

“We are a quality-driven manufacturer that supplies high-specification projects for almost any industry,” says Geoffrey. “Proudly made in Great Britain, we work alongside designers, architects and other manufacturers to produce a whole host of products using our wide range of manufacturing capabilities.

“We offer an extensive range of in-house manufacturing services and work with both small and large manufacturers that outsource processes including CNC machining, laminating, veneering, spray painting, assembly and edgebanding.

“Over recent years, we have invested heavily in our factory including an automated spray line, five-axis CNC’s and a PUR edgebander. With our new edgebander, we are now able to offer high volume, quality edge banding on a wide range of applications.

“We edge in materials including ABS, acrylic, veneers and solid timber, and use edging tape thicknesses from 0.4mm up to 15mm solid wood lippings. In terms of adhesives, we work with PUR glue which offers an incredibly strong and waterproof bond between the panel and edging whilst achieving an almost invisible glue line –perfect for our laminated panels, MDF, MFC, solid edge boardroom tables and even fire doors.
