Luxury bath manufacturer BC Designs says it has completed an initial planned investment into its manufacturing capabilities.
The results of the investment are already visible, with the company reporting a stock level increase across its entire product portfolio by as much as 60%.
BC Designs reportedly decided to make the investment in order to strengthen its customer service offering to bathroom retailers, announcing that it has also managed to halve lead time during the sale process.
Commenting on the company’s decision to invest in manufacturing, Darren Allison, MD of BC Designs explained: “We are continuing to see strong demand for our products in Q1 and into Q2 of this year, both with our existing range but also our latest additions.”
“We want to ensure that our customers, and their customers, are able to get hold of their first choice of bathroom products as and when they require them, and our investment of over £250,000 in our manufacturing capabilities, as well as an additional warehouse, has ensured that this is now the case.”
“As we near the end of this year, we’ll review how things are operating before making the decision of where to invest in for 2024 to continue to deliver the highest level of customer service and quality, design-led products that we are synonymous for.”
BC Designs announced their intention to invest in manufacturing in November, and said it also intended to increase productivity and output in its factories by 40%. This investment news follows reports that the manufacturer had its most successful turnover rates in the company’s history last year.
