New contracts spark record year for Rixonway Kitchens chief executive of Rixonway Kitchens Paul Rose in one of the kitchens

Dewsbury-based Rixonway Kitchens has announced a record start to 2014, which has seen turnover increase by 36 per cent in the first quarter, with production increasing to more than 18,000 cabinets a week for the first time.

New jobs plus vacancies for five new apprentices have been created after recent growth has been fuelled by several new contracts worth more than £6 million to supply kitchens to affordable and social housing providers in London and the South East.

This strong business growth during the last year has seen annual turnover increase from £30m to £35m with a further 15pc increase expected through 2014.

To help meet the increased demand, Rixonway Kitchens has invested more than £250,000 in IT systems, new equipment and logistics, added a third production line and employed additional staff including four kitchen designers.

Paul Rose, Rixonway Kitchens chief executive, said he was delighted with the growth and the business was also planning further investment of more than £1m in 2014 as demand continues to grow.

The firm employs 500 staff and was founded in 1978.
