Olton Bedrooms started 24 years ago in a 12 x 12 workshop in a rear garden in Olton.
With only redundancy money and the help and advice of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Managing Director Stuart Hubert started on a journey that was to surpass all expectations.
He writes as follows:
Within the first 12 months I moved into my first premises in Lakey Lane Hall Green followed by a further move 6 months later into a factory unit with a built on shop frontage. The growth and success of the business meant a new site had to be sought and some 8 years on into a premises at Olton Wharf. After 4 years at Olton Wharf we have again outgrown the premises and are now in our factory based at Cranmore Industrial Estate.
The past 6 years has seen a major move forward with us bringing in new machinery of the highest quality, a very strict quality control programme of our own products and our suppliers' raw materials and a very tight monitoring of our costs in and out.
We have spent a great deal of time constantly bringing in new and more advanced furniture e.g. soft closing sliding door systems along with looking at ways of making storage systems that totally maximise space e.g. Our newly designed corner robe system.
Wall Beds and Home Entertainment Systems are now beginning to establish themselves within our furniture range and installation of the Hideaway Beds takes us all over the country. Our new painted look finishes have re-vitalised our colour range and are proving to be a major success.
It didn't take us long to outgrow our Olton Wharf premises. In January 2010 we moved to our current premises at Radway Road on the Cranmore Industrial Estate. Now we have 11000sqft of floor area, consisting of showroom and manufacturing facilities.
Our future is very bright and we can, and always will, ensure that our customers receive the very best of our experience, advice and knowledge in an industry that we excel in. We are a genuine family business and we give a full guarantee on all our work and ensure the best quality of service from start to finish.
