Matt Thompson opened Thompson Joinery in 2014. First projects included historic wood window restoration, molding and door replication, and custom built-ins. With the addition of Aventine and Garland Woodcraft in 2018, the consolidated businesses became Thompson Millwork. As the company has grown from a one-man operation to thirty employees, so has the intent. Thompson Millwork now provides turnkey commercial casework, specialty millwork and historic preservation services to the Triangle-Triad region and throughout the Mid-Atlantic.
