The company was founded in 1961 by Richard Charles as The White Wood Shop.

In 1972 his son Robert took over the company, re-branding itself as the Robert Charles we know today. The company has fluctuated in size over the years, having showrooms in London and Exeter. In 1987 they moved to Galmington in Taunton to combine design, manufacture and installation all under one roof. We put our longevity down to an alternative view of manufacturing and making traditional  hand-made cabinetry that will stand the test of time.
