Company Background

VWM have been in the woodworking industry now for over 30 years, established in 1981 by William Varey.

Starting out life as a service business – maintaining and repairing customers’ machinery, VWM soon progressed into manufacturing and refurbishment services as well.

William Varey was immersed in the woodworking industry, learning his craft at a young age with leading brand Wadkin, as many staff have done since.

The current VWM 3 acre site is in fact based on Wadkin’s former base in Trawden, Lancashire.

"A trusted partner, VWM pride themselves on the long term relationships they establish with customers and their virtually nonexistent staff turnover – with many technicians and engineers having been with the company well over 10 years."


Since moving there 21 years ago, VWM has expanded and developed the site which now houses a showroom for new and refurbished machines, a workshop for manufacturing and warehouse for extensive spare parts and stock machines.

VWM now supply machinery to businesses across the UK and beyond which may have 2 or 200 staff working on them.

The woodworking industry has progressed and developed over time and VWM can cater for all requirements; with traditional craftsmanship at heart and have embraced technological advancements such as automation, VWM can provide the right woodworking solution for your business.
