This week’s member spotlight is on Acorn Wood Design Ltd. Having recently celebrated its 25th year in business, the company grew from a back yard garage into a 15,000 square foot facility (including shop and offices) on Mitchell Island in Richmond, British Columbia. Linda Wray from Acorn says “in the old garage, my husband would have to go out into the laneway to cut a 4 x 8 sheet of ply. Amazingly the neighbours never complained!!”
Acorn Wood Designs Ltd. now has four working partners leading a talented team. Each of them bring a unique expertise to a singular goal – “to ensure that our customer service is beyond exemplary and that every commission is the very best it can be.” Throughout the 25 years in business, Acorn has focused its expertise in turning their client’s visions into realty.
By combining state-of-the-art technology, meticulous shop drawings with established cabinetmaking techniques, Acorn manufactures and installs architectural millwork exactly as specified. Over the years, they have worked with “very high end restaurants, having done several in the last 12 years, which makes us the leader in this domain,” states Robin St-Pierre from Acorn.
At Acorn, they embrace projects of any scale, specializing in innovative designs for the commercial sectors. Taking care of every detail, their team works diligently with key specialists and suppliers to provide the most elegant and efficient solution for each commission.
Recently, they celebrated 25 years in business with a party which was very well attended. Linda thanks the industry, “It was a pleasure to have a chance to celebrate something positive in business and express our gratitude to our customers, suppliers, designers, and friends of Acorn.”
