DCS Group gives Hydewood legs!

The DCS Group recently completed a major installation at the new premises of Hydewood Ltd – a leading UK manufacturer of wooden furniture components. Moving from a site in Harpenden, which they had occupied for 23 years, to a contemporary 11,500 square foot facility in Welwyn Garden City, provided Hydewood with the opportunity to transform their production operation with the implementation of a modern, efficient layout.

Run by husband and wife team, Peter and June Bush, Hydewood produces high quality turned products for clients in the upholstery and furniture manufacturing sectors. Queen Anne, Georgian, Louie and Spade Toe legs, as well as ‘bunfeet’, stools, stair spindles and table lamps, are all included in the large portfolio of products manufactured by Hydewood. With a dedicated team of long-standing employees, everyone at Hydewood is justifiably proud of the firm’s reputation for quality and first class service.


Peter Bush says: “Over the years our old premises had become somewhat crowded as new machines were installed and, with the planned move to new premises, we were keen to ensure that we should make the best possible use of the available space.”

DCS were called in at an early planning stage and were involved throughout the relocation process – working closely with Hydewood, DCS were able to recommend an optimum machinery layout and accurately assess dust extraction requirements for the new factory. Melvyn Bathgate, sales director at DCS, says: “For the Hydewood project we were able to call upon all our expertise within the DCS Group; supplying and installing a new modular filter unit, an Ecogate® extraction optimisation system, as well as the supply and installation of two Gallito bench-type spray booths and exhaust stacks.”

Obviously delighted with their new premises, Peter and June Bush are quick to acknowledge the contribution made by DCS: “The project was handled in a very professional and caring way,” says Peter Bush, “and we have nothing but admiration for the input and expertise of the DCS team in helping us kick-start a new era for Hydewood.”
