As part of Devonshire Pine and Oak’s ongoing program of commercial improvements, the firm has appointed Steve Upperton as its new sales director. It has also appointed Adam Canham to its design team, and, as part of the shakeup, Andy Waddell assumes a new role as operations director.

“I am delighted that we have appointed two excellent new senior team members. Both come with fantastic experience and will help Devonshire reach the next level of our planned development,” says Andy Waddell.

Steve Upperton, who has held a number of senior positions in the interiors industry, says: “I am very excited to be joining such a fantastic British manufacturer. I have been very impressed both with the factory and the quality of the 18 ranges of painted, oak and pine.”

North Devon-based Devonshire Pine and Oak is one of the country’s largest manufacturers of pine and painted cabinets and is also a leading supplier of oak furniture.
