About Us

In 1983, Rob Watkins, opened RW Carpenters as a sole trader, and in 1991 due to significant growth, it evolved into a Limited company.  Since the late 1980’s the company has run an apprenticeship scheme in Conjunction with the CITB, and have trained more than 40 carpenters.  The majority of the staff started with us, and many are still with us today.  In 2009 we were the winner of the Mayors award for Employer of the Year.  That same year we were also highly commended for the Employer of the Year for Essex from the National Apprenticeship Council and also received a highly commended award from the Echo Newspaper Business Awards for our staff training and development.

We are totally committed to the CSCS scheme, and all our employees have the necessary CSCS cards.  We also use the services of the Safety Services (UK) Ltd- Health and Safety Consultancy, to oversee our Health and Safety requirements.  The majority of our carpenters are permanent employees of the company.  We also have comprehensive trade insurance for up to 10m.
