Yorkshire-based kitchen brand Omega Plc, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and recently announced Dame Prue Leith as its brand ambassador, has revealed that it has completed a £20million investment programme.
The substantial investment included a number of initiatives, including increasing its total site operation to 400,000sq ft and stockholding capacity by 43% along with the state-of-the-art production facility. This has resulted in factory output increasing to 17,000 kitchens per year with the production capacity and stock holding to manufacture up to 43,000 kitchens per year. The company added that with the increased capacity all painted kitchens are delivered within four weeks; rigid non-painted kitchens are available in three weeks; and ready-to-assemble kitchens are available in just seven days.
Omega Plc CEO Simon Barber, pictured, said: “As we celebrate 25 years at Omega, I feel incredibly proud that we are going forward into the next 25 years in such great shape. Despite the current challenges facing the industry from material, skilled labour and appliance shortages caused by COVID and Brexit, Omega continues to deliver high-quality, innovative, made-for-life kitchens, on time and in full. All of our employees have demonstrated huge passion and dedication to their jobs and have helped ensure we are ready for business as showrooms re-gather momentum and developers increase their build programmes.”
