Founded in 1971 McNickle & Sons is an established family business based in Carrickfergus, we specialize in the design and production of an exclusive range of standard and bespoke wooden furniture and associated products for places of worship.
In 2007 McNickle & Sons moved to the Trooperslane Industrial Estate. This move was also the result of a new partnership with Romor Joinery. Romor Joinery specializes in the design and manufacturing of bespoke staircases, windows, doors and frames. The partnership between the two companies has widened the range of skills, experience and technology within the business.
Our products are all designed and manufactured by our own designers and planners at our production facility in Carrickfergus. Following the finished process of staining or painting and polishing, our workforce will install the furniture on site with a minimum of fuss, but a maximum of care and attention to detail.
There is no "production line" approach to any order. Each member of staff, rightly described as a craftsman, is allocated a specific job which he will work on from drawing board to fitting. Every item is hand finished to the very highest level of quality. Our product range includes but is not limited to Chairs, Pews, Pulpits, Sound Desks, Tables, Flower Stands, Baptismal Fonts, Notice Boards, Organ Surrounds and Commissioned Pieces. We are also main agents for some of the UK's finest manufacturers of carpets associated with ecclesiastical interior design.
Many of our products are located in Parliament Buildings, Hotels, Universities and private dwellings, as well as many places of worship across Northern Ireland and the UK. Our quality and service have encouraged a steady increase in the number of customers who have returned to us time and time again.
We invite you to visit our design centre to view and discuss your requirements or we can visit you to discuss on site requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us at anytime to arrange a meeting. We can provide you with a complete project management service that encompasses all of your interior requirements with service and quality that has been important to us for nearly forty years.
