About Us

Specialist in Carpentry and Joinery

Established for over 30 years Houston Cox is a leading specialist carpentry and joinery company.

We are proud of the service we provide, the quality of our product and the combined knowledge, retention and experience of our skilled workforce.

We provide innovative solutions to complex projects – where customer requirements and our skill set are complementary.

Our customers endorse our belief in the company. We are grateful for this support which we will never take for granted.

Our ambition is to be the specialist of choice in our sector in London and the South East.

This ambition underpins how we undertake every aspect of our business from the relationships with our customers and supply chain to the support and training we offer our workforce.

We are financially strong and benefit from the positive support of belonging to a supportive parent company, the Morrisroe Group giving us a combined turnover of in excess of £200 million. This support and the opportunities it affords, along with our well earned reputation will help us to achieve our ambitions.
