About Us

Knowles Skirting & Architrave is a trading name of E. & S. W. Knowles & Co. Ltd, a company founded more than 90 years ago, and still going strong.  

With our core business being as a major supplier to many well known high street companies, and having supplied our products to the Olympic Village, Jaguar Land Rover and Abbey Road studios to name but a few, we have the specialist skills and equipment at hand to manufacture most things.  Supplying skirting and architrave at trade prices to the public and cutting out the middleman is a natural progression.  

With over 60 staff employed on site, we have a wealth of experience and expertise and our craftsmanship is second to none.

Our products are made to order, minimizing the chances of damage and bowing.  You have probably seen many tradesman in various DIY stores throughout the country looking down a length of skirting to check for bends and defects!  Its an unfortunate natural progression of timber when its been sat around.  This is something we don't allow with our products, and we still deliver our MDF products within 5 working days, and all other products, between 5-7 days.

Not having an army of retail stores dotted around to fund, we can supply our products very competitively to anywhere in the country, making us one of the cheapest suppliers around.

We advertise just a limited amount of profiles that we are able to produce.  With over 2000 designs available to us, we have at some stage produced most styles, but we always like a challenge!  These profiles are at the same costs as those displayed on our website.  Just give us a call, or send us an email if there is something else that you are looking for, and we can match our tools to your exact design.

Based in Birmingham, a literal stones throw from the M6 motorway, Knowles Skirting & Architrave is situated in the heart of England on the main arterial route between all major cities in the country. With an extensive factory and an army of skilled staff, Knowles Skiritng & Architrave is just one brand of E. & S.W. Knowles & Co. Ltd.
