Woodworking Industry Statistics
The woodworking industry has always operated at the heart of the UK manufacturing sector. Today, the 5,070 firms turnover an estimated £3.8 billion. BWF members supply products (staircases, doors, windows, architectural joinery, heritage works, furniture etc.) into almost every major construction project, with private housing, commercial and RM&I the most significant users.
Woodworking businesses span the full range of companies, from small family businesses, to large corporations. BWF members operate throughout the UK and provide genuine employment opportunities in parts of the UK that are often areas of high unemployment.
BWF produces a Quarterly Joinery State of Trade Survey to ensure that members have the latest information available. BWF members have membership of the Construction Products Association, this opens up the economic forecasting reports produced regularly by the CPA.
