Bluerun is a family owned and run company that was established in 1991 by its current Managing Director, John Jones. Accompanied by his wife Doreen, Company Secretary, Bluerun has established itself at the forefront of the industry.
Classed as a bespoke joinery manufacturer, Bluerun can manufacture most things from timber, hardwood, softwood, panels and sheet material. Ensuring complete customer satisfaction, Bluerun custom makes all its products made to order and are not available pre-made.
From its workshop based in Essex, Bluerun serves a large number of commercial clients with their joinery needs. The majority of its production is produced for the building and manufacturing industries, boasting a product portfolio from large scale repeat production runs of windows, frames and doors, to both large and small scale custom internal and external projects. In the past Bluerun has had the opportunity to manufacture joinery for large scale projects collaborating with Brent Cross Shopping Centre and Ellesmere Port for multiplex cinema and shopping centre fitouts and interior fitouts for large brand names such as Homebase. Bluerun also has a large amount of experience in routinely manufacturing bars and reception counters for hospitals, offices, schools, pubs and restaurants. Furthermore, Bluerun works alongside main contractors to supply bespoke shop fronts to which it has worked with the likes of Starbucks and Waitrose for these types of projects.
Bluerun’s high quality joinery meets the exact standards of conservation areas and heritage sites. Its multifaceted service means its joiners hold the capabilities to produce both new and modern styles as well as traditional and historical designs. A good example of Bluerun’s versatility was when it adapted its services to produce a 10-metre-high oak hardwood catapult for Stansted Mountfitchet Castle.
Bluerun can also provide a number of bespoke joinery services to the domestic sectors, from custom replacement doors and windows to bespoke furniture. Offering the replacement of windows and doors to match any period home, Bluerun can also create decking, balcony balustrading, gazebos, replacement stairs, banisters and mouldings, or bespoke cabinets and bookcases for inside the home. One notable project was when Bluerun was asked to produce a custom designed Wendy House for a private client.
The company’s well equipped 7,000 sq. ft factory enables its team of highly experienced and qualified joiner machinists to manufacture nearly any client’s request. From long run jobs to one off projects, the company’s capabilities stretch as far as the client’s drawings and specifications allow. Additionally, Bluerun has an experienced spray operative in charge of a modern spray paint and lacquer facility that enables articles to leave the factory in a fully finished state, ready for installation on site. Its own delivery service is then used to deliver goods directly to site where its team of fitters are available to complete the job.
