Imperial Bathrooms has announced the opening of a new wood division, which the company says has been established in order to increase its wood-based manufacturing facilities and production of toilet seats, bath panels and bathroom furniture, with a view to accelerating production levels fivefold.
Previously situated in Bilston, the wood division has been relocated to Aldridge in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, where the company’s current ceramic workshop, senior management, support staff and maintenance teams are already based. The facilities feature state-of-the-art machinery such as new CNC machine saws and a modern spraying facility, which will also allow the company to continue to build on its specialist range of hand-finished bathroom products.
James Stevenson, creative director at Imperial Bathrooms, said: “This strategic move has been long in the making and forms part of a major investment within the company via its new owners, Lousada Plc, to confirm its position as one of the leading British manufacturers within the bathroom sector. The new facility has been entirely modernised in order to boost productivity and create a more positive and cohesive work environment for our growing team, and we have more plans for expansion in the next five years.”
