What we do
Capital Crispin Veneer started trading after successful merger of Capital Veneer Company and J. Crispin & Sons in April 2002.
Capital Veneer Company Ltd was incorporated in 1988 with the aim of supplying a wider than usual range of high quality wood veneers. From its original location in Stratford, East London, the company moved into larger premises in nearby Bow in 1996.
J. Crispin & Sons began life as far back as 1900 in Curtain Road, Shoreditch. As the 1900’s moved into 2000’s, it became clear that venerable old premises were becoming less and less suitable as a modern-day operating base. Therefore, in 2001 it was suggested that it made sense to CAPITAL and CRISPIN to merge and the trading name of CAPITAL CRISPIN VENEER was adopted.
In 2007 came a final move to our current premises in Beckton, East London.
The joining together of both companies sparked a renewed focus and enthusiasm for doing what we enjoy most of all – sourcing and stocking for our customers the widest selection of natural wood veneers in U.K. Every log of veneer to be found in our warehouse has been carefully selected by our experienced buyers with special regard to quality, colour, figure and overall cleanliness.
We offer beautiful and inspiring veneers in well over 150 species, constructional veneers as well as dyed veneers.
The company also stocks range of lines, bandings and marquetry inlays.
We work closely with architects, interior designers and furniture makers who consult and frequently visit us to source, select and specify particular veneers for projects of all sizes they are working on. Whether you are involved in a major refit, a new interior, a range of furniture or just a specific piece, we will be pleased to talk to you concerning your veneer requirements.
