At Wellington Millwork, our greatest achievements are only met by your standard of approval. We pride ourselves on using your ideas and concepts with our skills, knowledge and craftsmanship to create unique, flawless cabinetry for your everyday living.
Wellington Millwork was founded in July 2010 by owner Auke Bijlsma. The company started out in a small shop with owner Auke doing every project, from design to installation, on his own. Since then, the company has grown and moved to a new facility with multiple employees. Wellington Millwork is backed by a team of professionals that continue to improve the company with skilled craftsmanship, unique new ideas and dedication. Wellington Millwork has now served hundreds of satisfied customers all over Southern Ontario.
AUKE BIJLSMA | PRESIDENT
Auke Bijlsma started Wellington Millwork 12 years ago, working by himself in a small room in a barn. Now Wellington Millwork has grown to a team of 14 people and is still growing! Auke manages the sales, meeting with clients and contractors to create ideas and formulate a plan. Auke is originally from the Netherlands and moved here when he was just a teenager. As he stood on a boat travelling across the ocean, he looked towards his future and never once suspected that he would one day run his own successful company with a dedicated and passionate team.
Choosing the finest cuts of wood and milling them from scratch to create timeless custom cabinetry is what sets us apart in today’s fast-paced and disposable world. With stunning design and precise execution, our team at Wellington Millwork team leaves a lasting impression.

With over 7 years of experience, problem solving comes naturally to him. Arno makes sure that the shop runs smoothly, and everyone is well equipped to do their job to the best of their ability. Arno also moved here from the Netherlands in his teens. Though they didn’t know each other until years later, Arno only lived 20 minutes from Auke’s home.
