Newton Aycliffe’s Trinity Kitchens eyes growth after cash boost
January 18, 2024
A cabinet maker says it is primed to create jobs and “take advantage of opportunities” following a factory expansion.
Trinity Kitchens has extended its presence on Aycliffe Business Park.
The County Durham firm has opened an additional near 5000sq ft unit to make and paint timber and MDF kitchen, bedroom and bathroom cabinet doors.
The move was fuelled by five-figure North East Small Loan Fund support, with the cash also allowing the company – led by husband and wife team Matthew and Leanne Fisk – to create two jobs and plan for at least three further staff.
Leanne said: “We’ve achieved sustained growth over the last few years, in terms of revenue and staff numbers, and we identified scaling up manufacturing as the next stage of our development.
“Having the extra space right on the doorstep was very convenient, but adapting it required a substantial amount of specialist factory fittings and equipment.”
The business was supported by NEL Fund Managers to access the North East Small Loan Fund pot.
Leanne added: “NEL’s backing has enabled us to get the facility up and running on schedule.”
Mike Guellard, NEL senior investment executive, added: “Trinity’s commitment to quality and sustained commercial success over two decades is extremely impressive.
“We’re very pleased to be working on the next stage of the company’s development.”
