Expansion for kitchen business
A business which has designed and manufactured kitchens in the North East for over 25 years is creating new jobs through expanding into a new showroom.
Kitchens Plus has added the new 6,000sq ft premises at Kingston Park to its portfolio its fourth regional site and plans to add several more jobs to its 50-strong workforce as a result.
The business, which also has a manufacturing and Granite fabrication site in Blaydon and other showrooms in Team Valley and Monkseaton, is now looking to increase its customer base into Northumberland and beyond.
Kitchens Plus, established in 1988 by Dave Craigen and Joe Heffernan who have more than 30 years’ experience of working in this sector in the region has gone from strength to strength over the years, establishing a presence across the whole North East in what is a highly competitive industry.
Its vast new showroom, on Airport Industrial Estate at Kingston Park, boasts 18 kitchen displays, 18 bathrooms and seven bedrooms, and Kitchen Plus’s owners predict it will help sustain its growth for years to come.
Dave Craigen said: “We are extremely proud of our new showroom, it is a fantastic addition to our business and is kitted out to the very highest standards. It’s a very impressive location and we are really confident this will benefit our business no end.
“We have been around now for many years, and have a strong presence across the whole of the North East. Through expanding into a new part of the region, we can now seriously target new geographical areas, such as Northumberland. We will be creating a number of new jobs too.
“Our business is in really good shape, but the addition of such a brilliant new location makes us even more confident for the future.”
Kitchens Plus was supported in its new acquisition by real estate Associate Tom Wills, as well as corporate solicitor Luke Phelan, from Newcastle law firm Sintons.
Tom Wills said: “Kitchens Plus is a well-established company which continually innovates and develops its business to keep ahead of the competition. Through the addition of such an impressive new showroom, Kitchens Plus is now well-placed to continue to remain at the forefront of its industry in the region.”
