A Wiltshire-based bespoke kitchen specialist has invested £1m in new high-tech machinery in a move to boost production capacity by 50 per cent, with support from Lloyds Bank and a government grant.
Family-owned The Manor Cabinet Company in Swindon has made the investment in response to an upturn in demand from residential developers and domestic customers.
It has launched a new range of kitchen cabinets called Linea, which is inspired by popular German styles, on the back of the investment, which was funded using a £600,000 hire purchase facility from Lloyds Bank Commercial Finance and a Regional Growth Fund grant.
Managing director Terry McPartlan said: “The quality and technology of the new machinery allows us to bring modem continental style products to the market that are very popular at the moment.
“It will also further improve the quality of the cabinets that we use across all our modern and traditional ranges.
“We have seen a significant upturn in both retail sales through our network of showrooms and our contracts division, which supplies the top end housing developers nationwide.”
The Manor Cabinet Company is a £10m turnover business which operates from a 70,000 sq ft site on the Greenbridge Industrial Estate.
Its products are sold through its network of three branded showrooms in Hale, Cheltenham and Swindon, 12 showrooms operated by sister company Optiplan and selected independent kitchen specialist nationwide.
