The Oliveti Group’s joinery workshops operate differently to other businesses!
And we are not just talking about the products which Oliveti manufacture – but the people who make up the skilled workforce.
Grandad Tony Cross, (66) his son and Workshop Manager Adam Cross, (43) and grandson Liam Cross, (23) all work together at the Company’s joinery manufacturing unit at Enderby.
The Oliveti workshop was originally founded in Willoughby, Leicestershire in 2003 and Adam and Tony – at the time both fully qualified and experienced joiners – started work there together. The workshop – Oliveti Cubicles – was originally set up to service the joinery requirements of the parent building company, Oliveti Construction.
As both Companies grew, so did the need for loyal staff, so it was a natural place for Liam to carry out his work experience. Since when Liam has never really looked back – with himself, his Dad and Grandad even manufacturing washrooms for their former school, Rawlins Academy!
Liam now has his own family with partner Zoe – (Finlay 4, and Evie 3.)
In September 2018 the workshops were relocated to Enderby, conveniently close to Oliveti’s office HQ at Meridian in Leicester. A workbench is kept spare for when Liam’s son Finlay – Tony’s Great grandson – starts work!
Oliveti Cubicles manufacture washrooms, hospital furniture, windows, reception desks, shopfitting products and many other bespoke items.
