About FGM

Introduction
Furniture Group Manufacturing Ltd (FGM) is a manufacturer of standard and bespoke furniture. The added benefit of an in-house design team with considerable experience in interior and individual furniture design provides the basis for the company’s renowned reputation of producing quality products. The close working relationship between designer and craftsman minimising any potential production problem. As a result FGM can offer its customers quality furniture at affordable prices from the most intricate quality bespoke furniture item to a quality bespoke melamine product.

History
FGM was established in 1997 with its Managing Director, Robin Bland bringing to FGM a wealth of experience and knowledge from other joinery, shop fitting and building businesses going back to 1971. Over the years, FGM has gained a reputation possibly second to none, supplying customers with design-led, bespoke and standard products.

Manufacturing Facilities
FGM's combined factory and office space covers 16,000 square feet in total. Due to our diverse manufacturing capabilities, our machinery also has to be diverse, encompassing top quality veneering to quality melamine product manufacture. FGM has a diverse range of machinery at its disposal, which includes the latest CNC technology. Our finishing shop combined with skilled sprayers allows us to produce excellent finishes in wood veneers, coloured lacquers, staining and coloured back lacquered glass.

Delivery / Installation
Our delivery and installation service is managed in house. This ensures that all products are wrapped well and provided with adequate protection avoiding damage during transit. Our installation team are all cabinet makers / joiners directly employed by us, who are conscientious and represent not only ourselves but our customers, producing high standard quality fit-outs.

All FGM employees are CRB (Criminal Record Bureau) checked and all our installation team hold CSCS cards.

Staff Training
Training is an important part of the company's investment in people. All of FGM's workforce are trained in-house by some of the most skilled craftsmen in Bedfordshire and the surrounding region.

Environment
We source our timber from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) registered distributors. FSC identifies timber from well managed forests.
With our waste management procedures in place along with our wood burner / heater we ensure all combustible waste is incinerated and the heat generated from this used to heat our building, reducing landfill and reducing energy. Our bubble wrap and packaging is all recycled and our wood shavings and sawdust are used to make compost. We recycle plastics and metal wherever possible.

The above waste management procedures have reduced our landfill by around 86% per year and we are continually striving to find new ways of reducing this further and becoming even more environmentally friendly, including moving more towards using water based lacquers wherever possible.
