LochAnna Kitchens celebrates 5th anniversary
British kitchen brand LochAnna Kitchens is celebrating five successful years of trading since it launched in November 2014 as a dedicated kitchen supplier aiming to make selling kitchens easier and more profitable for kitchen retailers and their installers.
Five years on, founder and managing director, Paul Jenkinson, is delighted to report that the business is doing really well, with 2019 seeing continued growth despite unpredictable market conditions.
"This month marks five years of trading and I'm pleased to say that business is good," says Paul. "Since launching with a relatively small and straightforward 20 door options in 2014, we have evolved into a well-known kitchen brand across independent retailers who value us for our fantastic British heritage, and beautifully designed kitchens. We now have 269 choices across our three kitchen brands, so our customers really are spoilt for choice.
"From humble beginnings opening the doors with the help of 20 staff, today we're a team of 39 and have a network of more than 150 retailer partners.
"In 2019 alone, we launched more than 70 new door choices. We look forward to marking the turn of the new decade with some exciting product developments - what we believe will be true firsts for the industry - and our first ever presence at KBB Birmingham where we look forward to meeting both current and prospective retailers.
"We're dedicated to going the extra mile for our customers and offer some of the shortest lead times in the industry thanks to our agile business approach. We guarantee a weekly delivery service anywhere within the UK - from Cornwall to Inverness."
In the lead-up to its fifth anniversary, LochAnna launched the new Durham collection, one of its most beautiful collections to date, drawing on British craftmanship and the trend towards a more glamourous and upmarket country-inspired kitchen. With this came the Durham Bi-fold dresser which has proved to be a popular and aesthetic storage solution.
LochAnna Kitchens is now also available for retailers to design on the main software platforms, including Winner Design, ArtiCAD and 2020 Fusion, boosting kitchen sales even further.
