This is all part of a fresh new look at my fathers heart and, as we prepare to celebrate our 20th anniversary, the radical changes are such that it almost feels like we're launching a brand new business.
First, we've added the fabulous SieMatic kitchens to our portfolio. This is a 90-year-old brand and sits right at the top of the tree when it comes to luxury German kitchens. Precision-built, slick and cool, SieMatic can certainly hold its own alongside our beautiful handmade cabinets.
For the first time in our 20 years we will have a beautiful showroom for the lovely things we build.
And, we'll be raising our profile from now on so keep an eye on us to check what events and demonstrations are coming up. As the head of SieMatic UK said, we'll be turning Sheffield's best kept secret into the first choice venue for high quality kitchens and furniture.
Personally I'm really excited to welcome the first of our two showroom managers and we're currently in the process of recruiting a new designer to manage the SieMatic brand.
So...while the quality of our bespoke handmade kitchens, bedrooms and furniture and the level of our care and service all remain as excellent as ever, we are now entering a new and exciting era.
For me it is the fulfilling of a vision for the business which has been in my mind for a decade and it feels fantastic! I love good design and great craftsmanship and we are going to be the centre for both. And as a Sheffield lad born and bred I am proud that, at last, the city can offer a stunning, under-one-roof location for luxury kitchens and bespoke furniture - instead of seeing people drift away to other cities to shop.
