Sofa Company Expansion Gives Employment Boost
The Chesterfield Company has expanded its operation by opening a new factory in Blackburn.The new premises covers almost 2000 square metres and has further room for expansion, allowing the company to increase the number of quality, handmade Chesterfield Sofas as well as various other items of furniture including beanbags, footstools, arm chairs, sofa beds and much more.
The new factory has employed 17 new members of staff. This includes our production manager and coordinator, sales advisors, accountants, floor manager, frame makers, sewers, wood machinist, frame assembler and an upholsterer. Our exciting future plans include employing many more people as our operation expands.The Chesterfield Company is proud to support the local Blackburn community and many of the people employed there live within just a few miles of the factory itself.
Dave Foster, Director of The Chesterfield Company is optimistic about the potential for further expansion, he said: "The building offers a lot of factory floor space, which will enable us to both store and manufacture products. As we now have the room for lots of different production areas, this will ensure that we can consistently make our products to the highest of standards, as quickly as possible. There is plenty of room in the building to accommodate our immediate growth plans, and to allow further expansion in the foreseeable future."As well as the new Blackburn factory, we also have another factory and a showroom based in the Pendleton area of Manchester, where customers can see our quality products first hand in a spacious showroom.
Our The Chesterfield Company has a long history in the sofa manufacturing business operating since 1951, and since then we have created thousands of handmade, bespoke Chesterfield leather sofas for many satisfied customers up and down the UK and even as far afield as Japan!
With the opening of this new factory, we hope there will be no signs of slowing down in the
future and we eagerly await the journey that lies ahead!
