Thomas Johnstone Invest In HOMAG

'' 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.

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.



Glasgow Film Theatre shortlisted in Scottish Design Awards 2018

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!
