OFFICE and design planning specialists Diamond Interiors have announced £1 million expansion plans creating jobs with a move to a stunning new headquarters.
The Lancashire based office furniture suppliers and space planning experts need to expand to cope with demand after a record breaking 24 months.
They have agreed a deal to move to Wigan as they approach their 20th anniversary next year and will transform the former Magnet showroom into a state of the art headquarters for their rapidly expanding business after a record breaking 24 months.
Diamond Interiors supplied the furniture for the £2.7million Rentalcars.com HQ in Manchester, dubbed the coolest office in Manchester by the Manchester Evening News, refurbished Sheffield City Council’s HQ and the furniture for law firm Pannone’s stunning refurbishment of 157 year old Castlefield Chapel,
The Chorley based team will celebrate their second decade next year and having carved a reputation for themselves as the ‘go to’ name in office and design planning they realise they must expand.
Diamond Interiors MD Nick Pollitt, said: “We have been searching for a suitable new Headquarters for a number of years and are delighted to have found this site.
“It ticks all the boxes in relation to our requirements and will help facilitate our business goals and future expansion plans. The staff and myself are all eagerly looking forward to move into our new base.
“The new office and warehousing space enables us to create a number of new jobs and provides us with the ability expand further as we move forward.”
Work will begin immediately transforming the 10,000 square foot Horton Street site with building work expected to take around eight weeks before the official opening in September 2015.
Diamond Interiors will transform the empty shell into a state of the art office and warehousing space which will include open plan office areas utilising the latest bench design furniture.
The move marks the next phase for the Diamond team who will leave their Chorley base as they prepare for their 20th anniversary celebrations.
They have carved a reputation for themselves within the construction industry as the ‘go to’ name in office and design planning and are retained by the likes of Redrow Homes, Swinton Insurance, Greggs PLC and EDF Energy.
Their business model has enabled them to grow despite recession and now leaves them ideally placed to expand and flourish.
Pollitt added: “The tide is most definitely on the turn and in my opinion now is the time for businesses that have ambition to commit and prepare for success.
“We have enjoyed an incredible period of success over the past 24 months and it is clear that we must expand to cope with the demands and ensure we continue to provide an excellent service.
“It has been extremely tough for all businesses over the past ten years or so but it is clear we are through those difficult times and we are finding more and more clients now have the confidence to plan ahead and move forward.
“That is not to say businesses are adopting a care-free attitude and suddenly spending lavishly, far from it. Instead, the period has taught us all to think more carefully about how we spend and on what?
“For many companies that perhaps means a redesign of existing office space or a fresh approach to the furniture they use or a rethink of their facilities.
“For many the uncertainty surrounding the economy has mean’t expansion plans were suspended and now they are in a position to move securing larger premises at far more competitive rates.
“We have been involved in some huge projects for stellar names and it is clear to us that we must expand ourselves in order to satisfy demand and ensure the quality of our service is maintained. It is a very exciting period for the Diamond Interiors team.”
