'' We never felt we were being forced into a corner; they understood our business and that really stood out.'' Michael Hillman- Thomas Johnstone's Manufacturing Manager.
We are delighted to be featured in HOMAG magazine with Michael, our Manufacturing Manager, discussing our vast investment in new technologically advanced software and machinery, ensuring Thomas Johnstone Ltd continues to prosper.
In order to keep up with market demands, a knowledgeable team was tasked with finding the right software and machinery to enhance TJL and our offerings to clients. Ranging from the HPP 300 beam saw to woodCAD|CAM software, the new technology has resulted in great improvements to both our abilities and our efficiency rates; all whilst propelling our 30,000 sq. ft. factory floor into the 21st Century.
This technological investment ensured we were able to maintain the balance between producing bespoke products alongside cost-effective mass production. This investment in TJL’s future is centred on the core incentive of always providing exceptional quality and service upon any request from our clients.
We are overjoyed that that one of our completed projects, Glasgow Film Theatre has been Shortlisted for 2 Scottish Design Awards 2018 for both Architecture and Interior Design. Previously quite gloomy and worn, the interior of the building has been revamped with an art deco look.
Scotland’s original independent cinema now features rare terrazzo flooring, feature lighting in the form of old fashioned bulbs and brass ironmongery finishings to capture the art deco design in its entirety. The vast butterfly staircase leading guests from the foyer to the first floor sees the two stairway access channelling the style of the 1930s. The finished look is complimented by wooden panelling and a feature mirror wall which extends from the staircase to the ceiling of the first floor.
This charming Glasgow landmark is very well deserving of these nominations and the exceptional quality and standard produced by our team is a reflection of that. We are very proud to be associated with GFT and are hopeful they will be successful in the Scottish Design Awards!

In the July edition CN Traveller, 4 of our hospitality sector projects were featured on the list of 'The Best Edinburgh Hotels'. The Edinburgh Grand, Eden Locke, The Principal Edinburgh George Street and Radisson Collection Hotel, Royal Mile Edinburgh are all being highly commended for their exceptional levels of luxury and quality.
With The Edinburgh Grand presenting a family friendly setting in the hub of St Andrew Square, to Eden Locke's studio apartments attracting those with a more unique sense of style, this degree of variation in the type of work we undertake is what we love!
We are very proud to see a number of our projects being classified as some of the best stays in the Scottish capital as we always strive to produce an esteemed level of quality and finesse in all of our work.
