Company information

N.E.J. Stevenson Limited design and manufacture bespoke furniture and architectural woodwork. Located at our sole premises in Church Lawford, Warwickshire we employ thirty-seven people in design, administration, manufacturing and installation and in the 2021-2022 year the company’s turnover was £ 3,357,637.00 up from £ 2,279,379.00 in 2020-21.

The environmental performance of the company is reviewed by the senior management team comprising the following:

Neil Stevenson           Managing Director

Fiona Stevenson         Finance Director

Ian Bown                     Production Director

David Drew                 Contracts Director

Neil Stevenson takes ultimate responsibility while Fiona Stevenson co-ordinates the implementation of policy and engagement with outside bodies. As Finance director, she is responsible for the monitoring of all the supply chain purchasing and reviews our contracts with suppliers and utility companies. Ian Bown and the Works Manager are responsible for day-to-day purchasing decisions. We view elimination of waste as both a financial issue as well as an environmental one and review our purchases monthly against yearly budgets.

Our processes change little from year to year but can be affected by new technologies and equipment, which allow us to be more efficient. As these opportunities arise, we review cost against benefit to determine whether to implement. 

We have previously undertaken an analysis of our processes with Warwickshire County Council’s environmental team who considered and evaluated our raw material, waste and utilities usage, before issuing the firm with a Green Achievement award in 2011. We have continued to follow the principles that gained us the award although sadly the awards no longer exist.
