Upholstery manufacturer Whitemeadow has secured 80,000 sqft of additional manufacturing space to consolidate and expand its current operations.

The new site is in the Sutton-in-Ashfield area, where the company already operates from six manufacturing sites.

Manufacturing of some products has already begun at the new site, and the company will relocate its entire bed frame production there from February 2021.

The deal to lease the four interconnected units at Langham Park was agreed earlier in the autumn, states the manufacturer, and the site is located close to its current head office in Sutton-in-Ashfield and its existing manufacturing sites, which are all within a two-mile radius of each other.

Whitemeadow will vacate its bed-production facility on Fulwood Road in early 2021. It was Whitemeadow’s first manufacturing site, but the operation has now outgrown the 13,000 sqft facility.

MD Ian Oscroft comments: ‘It will be sad to vacate Fulwood Road, which was our first manufacturing site 25 years ago, but exciting times are ahead, and we are optimistic about the future. As a leader in the industry, we believe this new facility will cement our current standing and enable us to grow in the future to fulfil, and indeed exceed, our customers' expectations moving forward.”
