Welcome to Alexander Cleghorn Ltd

Established in 1958 by Alex and Winnie Cleghorn, the company is still very much a family run business, providing a high level of service with a personal touch.

We offer a dedicated DIY and Shelving service supplying a range of Melamine and Veneered panels at a quality that is unsurpassed.

Furniture components are manufactured on our state of the art machinery which occupies several well constructed factories on our sixteen acre site.

Our highly skilled operatives can manufacture components to your individual specification whether your requirements are for one piece or one million.

Be assured, whatever your requirement you will receive the individual attention you deserve.

Our Services include:


Whether you require one sheet or a large complex order, the first stop is our Technical department. From here we will ensure that you receive the best value cutting service available. Once the order has been optimized we are ready to process the panels. This we can do on any one of our three Schelling beam saws or our Selco angle plant offering a swift and accurate service.


All panels pass through a milling unit in the first stage of the edge banding process. This ensures that the panels are dead square and have perfect clean edges.

Your choice of edge banding is then applied to the material. This can be PVC, PP, ABS, Melamine or Veneered tapes, even some hardwood lipping, with thicknesses from 0.3mm to 3mm and more.


We have invested heavily in the best CNC and through feed technology available enabling us to meet ever more demanding requirements.

With such advanced technology at our fingertips we are able to move between large production runs to intricate one offs at literally the touch of a button


With the need to offer something different ever more important we have to be able to produce more and more complicated shapes. We are able to router shaped panels to your requirements and also apply PVC lipping to these shapes.
