Home Décor Innovations, one of the leading suppliers of floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and associated storage systems in Europe, has opened its new 110,000 sq ft state-of-the-art factory in Rotherham. 

With around 120 staff, the manufacturer has made the move from Drakehouse in Sheffield to JF Finnegan's Woodhouse Link development on the site of the former Laycast Foundry at Fence.

Developer Woodhouse Link LLP (a joint venture partnership with JF Finnegan and Laycast Ltd) has undertaken a complete demolition and remediation programme to facilitate a brand new industrial and distribution park.

A deal with Henderson Global Investors for the purchase and construction of the property has created 91,500 sq ft of high-tech workshop space in addition to 21,600 sq ft of offices/showroom space.

Max Crosby-Browne, CEO at Home Décor, said: "The new facility is 10% larger than our current site, it has been designed and purpose built to our exact specifications. We have worked very closely with our landlord in order to realise our dreams.

"The new site will see significant investment from the introduction of new plant, new manufacturing processes and flows, through to the introduction of a purpose built interactive showroom which will stylishly present our products. We hope that our investments for the future will not only help to increase our efficiency, but will also support our continued commitment to quality and Customer Support."

Home Décor Innovations is a part of Canada's Renin Corporation and with operating companies in the UK and Italy, they manufacture over one million doors per year, and supply hardware to manufacture a further one million doors to strategic partners throughout the rest of Europe, The Middle East and Africa.

Their products are available through major retailers including B&Q, Wickes, Focus and Homebase in Europe, and suppliers to the construction industry.
