Joinery Contractors and Manufacturers
Quality products for the discerning customer

Hand-made in Yorkshire for 80 years

Smithson & Littlewood have been providing high quality joinery and manufacturing services in Yorkshire since Arthur Smithson and Frank Littlewood established the company in 1931. We're proud of our Yorkshire heritage and build everything to order in our custom workshop, using sustainable local materials wherever possible.

We specialise in:

  • New builds
  • Extensions
  • Alterations
  • Roofing
  • Kitchens

We understand that your project large or small, domestic or commercial - is unique, so we don't offer a one-size-fits-all service. All our products are crafted to order, from kitchen floors to floating staircases. And because they're built from the finest materials by our master craftsmen, you can feel confident that the end result will stand the test of time.

Why we're different

Our strength lies in the skill and experience of our team. Our joiners are experts in both traditional and modern manufacturing techniques, and work closely with our managers and directors. That means we can adapt to your needs quickly, communicate your brief from site visit to shop floor in no time, and deliver great results, fast.
