We Are Here To Serve You

The Emmerich name has been associated with high quality wooden hand-tool manufacture since 1852. The company was based at that time in the town of Remscheid, Germany. The Bermondsey, London, workshop was established in 1932 by Friedrich Wilhelm Emmerich, and Emmerich (Berlon) Ltd has been manufacturing in England ever since.

It was passed on to his wife and then his two sons, and the business, along with its brand name EMIR, is currently owned by the third generation of the Emmerich family in England. In 1966 we moved to purpose-built premises in Ashford, Kent, where we are still based today.

Our Happy Clients

“Excellent quality service…”

“Excellent quality service, we’re really impressed with the product. Emir’s personal and tailored service has helped our business grow…they are able to support everyone from small start-ups to large workshops.” Rebecca, Struthers London, Watchmaker’s Craft Workbench

The service is very good and you’re given the opportunity to customise your bench to your specific needs. I have a Traditional Carpenters Bench which is very sturdy, heavy and doesn’t move an inch when planing. All joints are mortise and tenon.

Service was excellent – I was kept well informed throughout. The cutting table with shelves is wonderful. It’s being used in our fabric showroom…it really looks the part, is solidly built and has been admired by everyone here.

The cutting table that I asked EMIR to make is absolutely brilliant. The guys who put it together were polite and great to deal with.
