              Which? Best Buy

              In May 2023, our rigid cabinets have been awarded a Which? Best Buy. Which? said that the cabinets are solidly built, with an excellent rating given for the strength of the drawers and hinges. They found that Howdens customers were least likely to have problems after their units were installed.

              Every cabinet we make is made using quality materials that are sourced from sustainably-managed forests in the UK. We also manufacture them at factories in Runcorn, Cheshire and Howden, East Yorkshire – reducing our carbon footprint.
