Geoff Sharpe, one of the original retailers of Keller Kitchens in the UK, has passed away.
In 1983, Keller opened its UK headquarters in Timperley near Altrincham in Cheshire and the set-up included offices on the first floor and a flagship showroom on the ground floor. In 1986 Sharpe acquired the showroom from Keller and began to build his legacy with business partner Danil Sugakov. He is pictured here opening the store in that year.
In that time, he transformed hundreds of homes across the Greater Manchester area and his company still sells kitchens from the same showroom today as the Keller Kitchen Centre.
A statement from the Keller team said: “It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of a dear friend, great trading partner and one of the original ambassadors for the Keller brand in the UK. Our thoughts are with Geoff’s family, friends and colleagues at this sad time”.
