The History of Desertoak Ltd

Chairman, Jim Ditchfield, established Desertoak Ltd in September 1986; his aim was to create a Company to provide Cost Effective, Fast Track, Quality Refurbishments, with the minimum of disruption to both the Client and their Business.

Over the years, Desertoak Ltd has enjoyed a pattern of steady growth, gradually expanding its Client base and benefiting from the experience gained from a wide variety of Client types. From inception to completion, each contract is carefully planned and individually tailored to suit the Client's specific requirements.

Barry Downey, Director, joined Desertoak in 1992; Barry holds vast operational and managerial experience, gained throughout his progression within the company. This combined with the supporting role of the Associate Director, Stephen Dear, and the professional skills of key staff, forms the solid core that Desertoak's Clients' have come to rely upon.

The strategically sited office in the Midlands is within easy access of all main routes, conveniently located for Desertoak's nationwide Client's.

A solid programme of investment has ensured that Desertoak is constantly abreast of technological changes, continually enhancing the comprehensive service offered. Technology and experience are key factors in the company's ability to carry out a variety of contracts, from small cosmetic alterations to large structural building projects.

Over the past 27-years, we have become a very diverse company working with a wealth of specialist Sub-Contractors', giving us the ability to work competitively in many different fields of work, from retail to Historic Restoration.

The company has taken great care and pride in the safety of its own Staff, Clients' and General Public. Desertoak encompasses all Health and Safety requirements and each contract is managed with strict adherence to this legislation. All our site operatives have successfully completed various training courses which are detailed on our Training Page.

To annually assess and update our own ongoing safety performance, we have achieved SAFEcontractor Accreditation and subsequently CHAS for over 11 consecutive years.

Our goal is to complete projects on time, to the highest standards possible, whilst maintaining a safe working environment throughout the project.

The careful selection of Staff and strong managerial involvement has culminated in a workforce that is committed, efficient and meticulous in their work. Quality, pride and the attention to detail has become the company's insignia.

"Excellence is in the details. Give attention to the details and excellence will come".
A quote from Perry Paxton.
