Haldane has firmly established itself as the UK's leading Timber Handrail Company with unrivalled experience and knowledge, the most advanced CNC timber machining technology and more CNC machines than any other timber handrail company.
Our continued investment in every aspect of our business, from state of the art handheld laser scanning technology to advanced automated CNC technology to our growing team of in-house timber handrail installers and french polishing of handrails, ensures we remain at the forefront of the handrail solutions sector
Haldane originally began its life in 1945 as a specialist wood machining company focused on supplying basic woodturning, furniture components, mouldings, spinning wheels and up until 1991 its key industry targets were whisky, furniture and wool industries - all low margin, high turnover and declining markets.
However the bold management decision to pioneer CNC timber handrail, with its first substantial investment in two pieces of machinery worth over £1/2 million. This required a completely different management approach whilst retaining the company's core values of quality, value and customer service.
Operating in such a sector that could have a major impact on the environment, Haldane operates a strong environmental policy that plays an integral part in our day to day business.
