Based at the time in the south east of England, Terry started Chestnut Products as a van sales company, driving to various outlets and fulfilling orders from stock carried on the van – believe it or not, a Mini Metro van at that!
The brand became well known through exhibitions and demand from other parts of the country grew, leading to a major change when the majority of orders were sent by carrier with Terry maintaining the personal touch with more local deliveries.
Now over 25 years later, Chestnut Products hold an enviable position of being a major supplier to both hobby and professional woodworkers both in UK, Europe and the rest of the world. It might surprise you to know that despite this massive growth Chestnut Products is still only a very small company and the personal touch continues.
Terry remains at the helm and as there are only two other full time employees has to be very hands on in all aspects of the company’s business.
Further growth and new markets are planned. These things always take longer than expected, especially with the ever changing regulations regarding materials that can be used in products and the relevant packaging requirements.
