We are delighted to announce that our Ocean Shipyard Joinery Department are proud Members of The Institute of Carpenters.
The Institute of Carpenters is a membership organisation that enhances and promotes Carpenters and Joiners who have superior knowledge and craftsmanship to the highest professional standard.
The IOC was founded in 1890 by 11 craftsmen who had achieved first-class passes in the new exams set by the Worshipful Company of Carpenters, one of the oldest livery companies in the City of London. At that time, the Institute’s role was to oversee training for carpenters and joiners to help maintain high professional standards and skills at a time when many feared that traditional skills were being lost.
Today, they work to enhance and promote the status of the profession to ensure that their members and clients benefit from the superior knowledge and craftsmanship associated with the Institute.
“We’re proud of our heritage and history and over a century later we’re still committed to the original aims of ensuring each generation of carpenters and joiners upholds the highest traditions of our historic craft”
