R & S Tonks was established as a partnership in 1948 by Robert Simpson Tonks and Sydney Tonks, grandfather and father respectively of current Managing Director Robert Tonks.

In its early years R & S Tonks worked mainly for a leading brewery, maintaining its local pubs.  Premises were purchased in Stoke on Trent in 1950 and as its reputation developed, the business extended its client base, offering a general joinery service to the domestic market and local property developers.

Current MD Robert Tonks joined the family firm in 1983.  A trained quantity surveyor with experience in property development, Robert was to transform the company.  It relocated to its current site in Boothen, Stoke on Trent in 1986 and in the ensuing years the premises and vehicle fleet have been expanded, new state-of-the-art plant purchased, and an unrivalled team of experienced joiners and associated tradesmen formed.

From humble beginnings the company has developed into an industry leader offering an unrivalled refurbishment and maintenance service to commercial and private clients.
