The new general manager of Hull-based kitchen door and cabinet manufacturer Summerbridge is Gary Stevens. Well-known in the industry, Gary has held senior management roles since 1997 when he started at bath manufacturer Reva Industries, and for the past five years he ran the Hull manufacturing facility for Ideal Standard before it moved overseas.
Having joined the Summerbridge business just prior to the COVID-19 lockdown, Gary commented: “It has been an interesting time to run a production facility. A sizeable proportion of our business, due to our location, is for the mobile home and leisure industry, which is currently busy as the sales of UK lodges, mobile homes and caravans flourish. It’s been a good boost for our business during the temporary retail shut down. Now our retail business is coming back, and we hope it will continue to grow as businesses look for local supply from a UK manufacturer. It’s great to be heading up this sizeable facility. Summerbridge has great potential for growth,” he concluded.
