AN OLDHAM furniture manufacturer has created new jobs and investment by opening its third showroom.
Fineline Interiors designs, which operates show rooms in Oldham and Littleborough, manufacturing and installing kitchens, bedrooms and home studios, has opened its new premises at Gemini Retail Park in Warrington.
Fineline currently has 25 staff in roles including design, surveying, manufacturing, showrooms and logistics.
It also works with a further 15 installers and contractors across the north west.
Saddleworth-based Mike Jackson, Fineline’s managing director, said: “We moved into the new Warrington site earlier this year and undertook a programme of redevelopment work.
“The showroom was recently opened to the public and it features a bespoke collection of 11 kitchens, nine bedrooms and offices displays.
“So far, we have appointed five staff at Warrington including a design manager, a designer, a surveyor and two demonstrators.”
Mike, 52, grew up in Chadderton and attended North Chadderton High School.
He took an apprenticeship with a joinery firm then set up his own business aged 21 when the fitted kitchen industry was still in its infancy.
His business was first based in Royton but has been at its current Chadderton site since the mid-1990s.
The Warrington expansion comes at the end of another year of success for Fineline.
It was named 2017 NEFF Master Partner of the Year at a national industry awards ceremony in London.
“The national award highlights Fineline’s contribution to the success of the NEFF brand through loyalty, expertise and dedication,” said Mike.
In addition, Fineline was a finalist for the Best Design Over £25,000 category at the same national awards.
Fineline was also a finalist in two categories of the 2016 Oldham Business Awards – Employer of the Year and Business of the Year.
