Bathroom supplier Methven has relocated its head office and showroom to its new Experience Centre in Golborne, Greater Manchester as part of a six-figure investment.
The 5,500sq ft premises will display Methven’s product range and benefits from working wet displays and demonstration areas. The space doubles up as a training facility for trade, hotel, house builder and retail customers for first-hand product experience and will also act as a head office for the business’s growing staff base.
As well as the new facility, Methven has invested in its product distribution hub in Leigh, Lancashire, restructuring its layout to increase efficiency.
This investment follows a number of recent award wins for the company, including a place in the CoolBrands 2015 list.
Martin Walker, chief executive of Methven UK, said: “This significant level of investment in the business is a new and exciting chapter in our 129-year history. Our state-of-the-art Experience Centre will act as a shop window for customers wanting to engage with our patented technology products first-hand and gain insight into the business’s design-led ethos.
“In addition to unveiling the new head office, our investment in the distribution hub and sales team is indicative of the successes and growth to date, as well as reflective of our ambitious plans for the future.
“The award wins and CoolBrands listings are further proof of the exciting direction we are taking. To be named among the likes of Apple, Netflix and Ray-Ban as one of Britain’s ‘coolest’ brands is something we are extremely proud of.”
Methven has also made three new appointments to its sales team as part of the investment, and further additions are planned for the upcoming months.
