THE ROOTS OF JOHNSON BESPOKE

Johnson Bespoke was founded by Robin Johnson, one guy in a small lock up, with loads of passion, enthusiasm and skill. One job at a time, the team started to grow and the projects got bigger and better.

Moving from the lock up at the end of the alley, to the basement of an empty newspaper building gave the space to build bigger and better things, but all too soon the guys had outgrown that space, with more tools and machinery required to meet demand.

Fast forward to the present and our new workshop, based in Hastings, equipped with specialist woodworking, joinery, metalwork and fabrication machinery to allow us to produce pretty much anything, to the highest standard possible.
