STAFF at a Sheffield door-making firm are settling into their new home – and have high hopes for the future.
Home Décor, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and associated storage systems, has moved to a purpose-built factory at Innovation Way, Woodhouse Mill.
Max Crosby-Browne, chief executive, said: “We are excited with our new premises which will allow us to increase our efficiency and in turn significantly grow our turnover, providing a boost to the local economy.”
The firm has relocated from Beighton Road, Drakehouse, with that site now earmarked for an Asda supermarket.
Andrew Kenny, Home Décor marketing director, said: “The move has seen Home Décor’s existing 100 staff relocate just a few miles to the new facility, which is 25 per cent larger than the old site.
“The new building has been designed and purpose-built to exacting specifications for the business.
“Working closely with the landlord, the development has been delivered at breakneck speed to allow the current site to be demolished to make way for the new Asda.
“The move gives us the opportunity to lay down the foundations for future growth,”
Home Décor makes more than 400,000 doors per year and supplies hardware to make a further one million doors for partners across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The new building, at the Woodhouse Link development, on the former Laycast site at Fence, has seen significant investment with the introduction of new plant, new manufacturing processes and flows, through to the introduction of a purpose built interactive showroom.
