Owen Dare

Director, The Joinery Network
I have been in the industry for over 40 years firstly as a carpentry/joinery working on building sites and then in joinery work shops. Then changing direction from the tools to management and surveying. I was the Technical Director at a very large timber window and door manufacturer for 17+ years before starting The Joinery Network with a vision to help small to medium companies become more efficient and increase productivity. The Joinery network offers the industry a fully compliant window and door solution call Lignum, that meets all the current building regulation. Joiners can use this Lignum solution to grow there business portfolio. I am also involved with The Vacuum Glazing Network offering high performing vacuum glass to all industries.
