Crystal Kitchens through the support of the lenders raised a loan of £25k in July this year to carry out refurbishment works and a marketing campaign.

Crystal Kitchens & Bathrooms is a long standing, very well known local high street business. The original company was created almost 25 years ago, and purchased by the current owner upon the retirement of the original owner almost 10 years ago. We specialise in the design, supply and installation of Kitchens, Bathrooms and Bedrooms. We currently employ our own installation teams and offer a wide range of services including electrical, plumbing, decoration joinery and tiling work. We have worked very hard over the last 10 years to maintain and build on the reputation to the stage that we have not needed to advertise for new business for over 4 years. in addition to this our forward order levels normally sit at approx 3 months ahead. We have a large showroom based in the centre of the city with a varied selection of kitchens and bathrooms on display.

What is the loan for?

We are currently half way through a two stage process of refurbishing the showroom with new displays and new products. We have plans in place for the installation of 2 new kitchen displays and 3 new bathroom displays. As a showroom it is imperative we keep the displays up to date and always showing new ideas and innovative concepts. We are also developing a separate area of the showroom building into an area devoted to supply only items, such as tiles, accessories and more budget concious kitchens and bathrooms. The final area of development is to expand our existing installation teams in order to be able to increase turnover and meet the past few years level of demand. This involves new vans and signage, as well as new tools and specific machinery both mobile and also within our existing workshop where we currently manufacture bespoke kitchen items, and area which is very high margin and also offers great versatility to our clients.

Why consider investing?

Crystal Kitchens & Bathrooms is the longest established showroom operating in this sector in the whole of Angus, and has made an excellent reputation for themselves by ensuring they offer the best levels of customer service, workmanship and design levels. They are multiple winners of many industry awards including Kitchen Designer of the year and multiple finalists in specific bathroom design awards. It is owned and operated by a husband and wife team, who have over 25 years experience in this industry and are now starting to involve their children in the business for the future, this is a long term project. If they are successful in this loan then we would generate a further 3-4 local full and part time jobs and allow them to offer further services and expand the range of products to other, currently untapped areas of the market.
