Founded by William Woodcock in 1850, the family business was initially focused on real estate. From its origins in the farming sector, by the 1950s ‘Woodcock Estates’ specialised in high-end residential sales in and around Hampstead. In the early 1980s, the company saw the potential of the kitchen manufacturing market and this became its focus. As a result, the Woodcock family became specialists in kitchen hardware and soon took the opportunity to diversify into all types of household ironmongery. The business concentrated on this sector and, through a thriving trade counter in Colliers Wood, began to serve larger construction projects. This growth ultimately led to the company rebranding as Strada in 1981 and, with booming sales in architectural hardware, the business no longer offered kitchens by the mid 1990s. Still a partnership today, the business is now in the hands of the current generation of Woodcocks – Chris and Roz, supported by their three sons and other members of the family.
Strada London is a company dedicated to quality. This commitment is demonstrated not only in the high standard of our products but also in our approach to all aspects of business: integrity is our watchword.
Our experienced and qualified staff are keen to share their valuable expertise. We invest in modern procurement and inventory systems that enable us to supply clients quickly and efficiently with the ironmongery they require. We are also dedicated to understanding each client’s precise needs, seeking the utmost clarity in all communication and ensuring that project deadlines are met.
Of course, when it comes to our products, we are uncompromising in our scrutiny of materials, processes and finished pieces to ensure that our solutions are not only aesthetically perfect but that they also provide many years of reliable use. Being extremely proud of our country’s strong heritage in the design and production of architectural hardware, we support British manufacturing wherever possible.
Strada London is a dynamic and friendly company in which commitment and ingenuity are recognised and rewarded. We invest in training and promote a culture of enterprise and innovation that enables our employees to thrive in their chosen specialism.
