We offer a truly “made in Britain” product with everything.

Being manufactured at our factory in Nottinghamshire.

We can manufacture all types of case goods.

Ranging from our own designs to exclusive ranges.

We work hard with designers, architects, contractors, project managers and property owners.

Turning your vision into pieces of furniture.

A family run business which has been established for almost 30 years

Operating within the contract and hospitality markets.

We work with our client from the initial concept through to the final installation of their projects.

Since Sylvan’s launch, almost 30 years ago, training has formed a key part of our growth strategy. Our recruitment policy has been to target local school leavers who,
following an initial trial period, are employed on an apprentice
training scheme and, if successful, achieve qualifications to a minimum
of Level 3 Advanced City and Guilds. Each year, we contact all the local
senior schools in an attempt to offer an alternative way of learning
for students aged 16 who now have to remain in some form of formal
studies.We operate our apprentice training scheme in partnership with North
Lancashire Training, which is widely recognised as one of the leading
furniture making apprenticeships in the country.

We then continue to offer on the job training throughout our staff’s
careers, and as a result 50% of our management team began their careers
with the company as trainees in the factory.

We have recently expanded our commitment to training and learning by
offering, for the first time, a Business Administration Apprenticeship.
We hope to teach our latest Apprentice what goes on behind the scenes in
a furniture manufacturing company and they are currently working in the
office alongside the Operations Manager learning all aspects of the
administrative side to manufacturing. From taking calls and dealing with
enquiries to learning the basic elements of how to put a quote
together, we hope to give them a broad knowledge of the industry
enabling them to progress into other roles.

Many of our staff have been with us since leaving school and some since Sylvan was founded in 1995.

On the job training is provided by experts who have been working in industry for years  – so we learn from the best!
I have been here a year today and it is the best year of my life.
I love working for Sylvan, it feels like one big family.
