Excellent opportunity to join the team here at Whitehill Spindle Tools.

The Tooling Assembly role involves primarily working in our Fitting department, assisting with some of the following tasks;

Sending machined tools off to third-party companies for coating and receiving the coated tools back into stock.

Assembling woodworking machine tools, from a provided list of components and sometimes also a technical diagram.

Cleaning tools and components before being sent out to the customer.

Maintaining stock levels and comparing to our internal IT system.

Reporting any issues with tool assembly and getting help as required.

You will be required to use some different tools, so some experience at least with using a screwdriver would be a bonus.

There is quite a lot of checking and updating information on our internal IT Systems, so some basic computer skills are required.

For the right person, there is a lot for someone to learn here in the Fitting department and other areas of the factory.

Whitehill's Open Day 2017


Our recent two-day demonstration event – which took place from 28-29th June – focused on the capabilities of automatic tool-changing machines. We saw over 50 new and existing customers pass through the doors here at Luton, to witness demonstrations on three machines and also learn about a variety of tools and technical expertise we have here.

In addition to our demonstrations and talks, we invited Accoya, Joinerysoft, Coastal Group, RJ Woodworking/Vertongen, Scott & Sargeant/Otto Martin and BWF to create a complete overview of the window manufacturing process.

The event brought to light the efficiencies that can be created by using automated processes. We were able to demonstrate how windows could be made to order with virtually no set-up times, no marking out and perfect repeatability. With no minimum batch size, this creates the simplest and most cost-effective production change, reducing waste and significantly improving customers’ productivity. Joiners who attended were amazed by how their current time-consuming production methods could be reduced so significantly – from 6 hours to 8 minutes.

Mike Lewis of Accoya comments: “It’s good to see so many joinery companies involved in this event and bring together all the different stakeholders who are associated with making wooden windows and doors.”

David Hudson, Managing Director of Whitehill, adds: “We were pleasantly surprised at the number of visitors who took the time to attend our open day and expressed a real interest in what was on offer. We received a number of enquiries on the very same day, which – to us – is testament to how well the format works.”

David continues: “Whitehill Tools are the only manufacturer in Britain of this kind of tooling and we’ve made major investments in our facilities here. We’ve found people like to deal with a UK manufacturer, someone they can talk to or visit if they have any problems or questions. We focus our business on first class quality and service and our USP is to undertake both small and large projects with incomparable excellence, whilst still maintaining a personable and professional service.”

A New Mazak CNC milling and turning centre arrives in our Luton Factory during January.   This state of the art machine will increase productivity and efficiency in manufacturing. These constant changes into modern technology, machinery and training ensure Whitehill will remain one of the leading tooling manufacturers in the UK.

During last year we held several Demonstration Days, both at our factory in Luton and at Scott & Sargeant in Horsham.  These proved to be very worthwhile. Customers could see windows being manufactured, our tools in action, and we provided technical support to answer all their questions. As a result sales of our stack window systems and custom design setups have greatly increased and we are optimistic that this will continue into 2014 and beyond.

Whitehill Window Systems Achieve U-Value 1.2


 U-Value measure how well heat is transferred by the entire window/door frame, sash and glass - either into or out of the building. The lower the U-Value number, the better the window or door will keep heat inside a building on a cold day. Whitehill Window Systems have achieved a u-value as low as 1.2 [W/(m2.K)] in thermal simulations (accredited through British Woodworking Federation), and the documentation and graphics are included with every complete window system tooling-set sold. This means that businesses investing in Whitehill tooling solutions have all the information necessary to satisfy architects etc. This certificate is a valuable marketing tool to attract new business.
