Hull-based furniture supplier Summerbridge has become the latest UK manufacturer to be accredited by the Made in Britain campaign. They join a diverse group of businesses campaigning for British-made products and, as members, are now entitled to promote the trademark.
Summerbridge, which has been designing and manufacturing kitchen, bedroom and bathroom doors and cabinets since 1992, work out of an 80,000sq ft factory where they buy in MDF and MFC as raw material and process it to the required specification specifically for the trade. They joined the established network of members of Made in Britain to promote their brand, increase the profile of their business, and network with other members.
“It’s a particularly important time to be supporting British manufacturers and we are proud to be members,” said Gary Stevens, general manager at Summerbridge. “Brexit has resulted in increased orders as people look to the reassurance of a local British supply, and it is positive news that our business appears to be expanding off the back of it. Made in Britain brings together the British manufacturing community, united with the use of the registered collective mark.”
