A local kitchens manufacturer and retailer has opened a new showroom and created two extra jobs, with more expected, after moving to a new location in Metheringham.
The space and facilities at Scoley Court, off Moor Lane in Metheringham, have provided Phoenix Kitchens with the chance to expand and grow. The site is owned by North Kesteven District Council and consists of seven units aimed at small and growing businesses.
The move is perfect timing, as the business also prepares to celebrate its 20th birthday in October.
Phoenix Kitchens is an innovative manufacturer and retailer of kitchens and associated products including appliances and worktops, bedrooms, and other furniture. They pride themselves on utilising the latest technology to provide superior products at a competitive price to private and trade customers, which include local housebuilders and other kitchen retailers.
Phoenix Kitchens was established in 2003. Formerly based on the Moorlands Trading Estate, it has been in business in Metheringham for almost 20 years.
Owner and Director Andy Graham said: “After starting to manufacture our own products in 2013 we quickly ran out of space. Scoley Court was the perfect opportunity for us to expand and allow us to upscale our operation, providing two additional jobs in the process.
“Scoley Court also allowed us to open a large showroom, which has resulted in additional sales and continued expansion, leading to needing more warehouse space hence taking on Unit 4 Scoley Court, in addition to 5, 6 and 7.
“Working with Eddisons Incorporating Banks Long & Co has been key to securing the units at Scoley Court and the transition across from Moor Lane. When we needed more space, they have come up trumps twice in securing additional units, allowing the business to grow.”
The constant expansion and development of the business brings with it new opportunities for the District as job opportunities are expected to increase.
North Kesteven District Council Leader Councillor Richard Wright said: “This is a fantastic success story about a business clearly working incredibly hard to keep expanding and delivering great services, and which has had the space and freedom to grow through the availability of suitable units locally.
“It’s a great example of why we are focused on providing high quality space across the District to meet the needs of growing businesses, and I wish it all the best as it continues to succeed.”
Eddisons Incorporating Banks Long and Co have commented on the success of Scoley Court.
Eddisons Incorporating Banks Long and Co Surveyor Will Nuttall said: “Through working closely with Phoenix Kitchens and NKDC, we are delighted to complete on another unit to sustain Phoenix Kitchens continual growth. It is fantastic to see them go from strength to strength and hear that Scoley Court is enabling them to expand. Eddisons Incorporating Banks Long & Co are delighted to work closely with tenants to assist with their growth and development.”
In 2022, the business invested in a bigger CNC machine, and this increased their capacity and allowed for further growth. An upgraded edging machine closely followed, which also has allowed them to offer new processes to improve their quality and offer specifications most other companies have not even considered.
