2014 has seen HARTWOODS enter its 30th Year of history. 1984 was the year our family run business was formed. Today we have evolved into a completely different company. Even the last year has seen HARTWOODS change its position in the industry to one of the leading contenders for Design strategy and customer service with product ranges to rival any of the competition out there.
Over 12 months ago we moved into a new prominent showroom in the heart of Prestbury village in Cheshire. A showroom that last year won the NDA showroom of the year. We added this to our already existing showroom in the building next door. A 200 year old converted stable. We now showcase some of the most inspiring ideas and designs. This all helped to propel us to the level we currently at. The clientele we have been commissioned to work with has shifted to become more specialists. With unique projects all over not just Cheshire but also in London and other places throughout the UK including Leeds, Liverpool, Middlesbrough, Wales, Lake District, Brighton, and even in Europe with a project in the French Riviera successfully completed and a Swiss Alps chalet on the horizon!
In terms of business credentials, we have increased turnover over the last 3 years by 150%. We are now close to 2008 levels. However we now have honed our projects to be fewer meaning the average cost of our kitchens has increased substantially. We are installing on average at least one new project each week. On top of this we have rolled out our contracts side of the business which will run alongside the current business and have already secured a contract to supply kitchens to 13 exclusive town houses in ‘Knutsford’ as well as a large project in ‘Sunbury upon Thames’. We have also just completed a project of 4 kitchens in ‘Didsbury’. There are more exciting projects in the pipeline.
