Celebrating 85 Years

At the age of sixteen Alfred Briggs, went to work for a kitchen manufacture in England to learn how to produce and design handcrafted kitchens. On returning home for his sister’s wedding and as a gift he produced her a bespoke kitchen for her marital home.
The bespoke kitchen he designed was the talk of the town with others asking for him to create a kitchen for them.

Alfred established Alwood by Alfred Briggs in 1933 and rapidly became the largest kitchen maker in Northern Ireland. When war began, the business manufactured essential bedroom furniture in particular baby cots to support the cause.

We have continued to grow since then with Alfred’s son Wilson joining the business at the age of nineteen. Wilson has built a business with a passion for kitchen innovation, excelling in bespoke design and most importantly understanding our customers.
