So, for those who don’t know me, my name is Ben Brindley and I’m a joiner but I’ve not always considered myself to be one. At the start, back in 2004 my joinery workshop was a very basic and bare bones setup and if you read my previous blog “Contemplating the future” you will find out more about this.
Over the years as I have learnt my trade through experience, learning from others and gaining confidence in myself, the name “Brindley Garden Products” has become less and less relevant to the work that I am carrying out. Even customers, friends and family have brought this up and said that the name isn’t fitting to the types of joinery work I am now becoming known for. At the beginning of 2020 I was considering the name change but the global pandemic gave me the fear of a lost customer base and the chances that a change of identity could magnify this further!
After a few discussions with clients in December I decided that it was holding me back more than it was of benefit so after years of procrastinating the name “Brindley Timberworks” was chosen. Gary from Profound 4 Design was commissioned to create the new logo and this set the ball rolling for a new chapter in my woodworking career and my life.
I am both nervous and excited by the change but feel that this is a natural progression in a career that I want to pursue until I retire in another 25 to 30 years.
