Our products are designed, manufactured and stocked here in the UK. We bring together the unique craftsmanship from leading British companies in a range of industries from metal fabrication, injection moulding, wood working, and upholstery.
Building close manufacturing relationships is key to the success of our products and commitment to quality. Being able to pick up the phone or drive down the road to collaborate with suppliers and solve problems is important to our process and the unique development of our products.
We carry large stocks of components so that our products can be easily customised and delivered with short time frames and where that bespoke treatment is required our locality enables us to easily respond to special customer requests to alter colours, fabrics and finishes on the fly.
We work with our suppliers to ensure our materials are sourced in the most sustainable way and made under ethical working conditions. Supporting local manufacturing not only means high quality and short lead times, but importantly supports local industry, jobs and communities around the UK.
‘Supporting British manufacturing is nothing political or nationalistic, we actually believe it is good business for our customers as we offer well designed, quality products that can be customisable and delivered within short lead times. Our locality has even recently proved extremely important as we were able supply 1000 POP chairs for the NHS Nightingale hospitals literally overnight.
We continue to focus on productivity and improving our industrial process to remain local and maintain our competitive position. Take for example our new all metal seating range Contour, through popular demand we have been able program a 7 axis CNC robot to complete the laborious welding process, almost halving the time it takes to produce!
I started Origin over a decade ago with the intention of developing a portfolio of well designed affordable furniture for the mass market. We have now supplied product to all corners of the UK and to a broad selection of customers, whether it’s a small cafe or large hospital, it’s always nice to stumble across one of our products in the field.’
