Howden Joinery Group plc is the parent company for the Howdens Joinery business (Howdens), a leading supplier of kitchens and joinery products, which are sold to small builders.

Howdens was established in 1995, as a business unit within MFI Furniture Group .

In October 2006, MFI sold its loss making MFI retail business to Merchant Equity Partners for £1, while retaining Howdens. At the same time, the name of MFI was changed to Galiform plc.

In November 2008, the MFI retail business entered administration, Galiform becoming liable for the costs associated with 46 MFI stores. An exceptional charge of £99.7m was incurred in 2008 to cover these costs. At this stage, Galiform was liable for the costs of over 80 properties previously used by MFI (the legacy properties).

2014 Howdens' kitchens are manufactured at plants, which are located in Runcorn and Howden
