Chesterfield Lounge, the Chesterfield furniture producer, has committed to keeping its UK production centre. This is exactly the type of move that the UK's struggling economy is looking for from businesses, particularly given the lure of cheaper foreign countries' production facilities.
The company has long been a leading manufacturer of traditional English furnishings, and has always realised the value of UK production. A spokesman for the Chesterfield Lounge recently highlighted the importance of their commitment:
"We value the history behind the products we make and sell. These exquisite pieces of furniture are about as British as it gets, and we see no reason for that to change. We want our customers to benefit from the expertise of the British workers who hand craft all of our pieces, and we want to be part of the UK's rejuvenated economy. Our commitment to maintaining UK production is a testament to the stellar work carried out by our dedicated employees, while the close contact we have with our customers is something we have always cherished".
One particular product made by Chesterfield Lounge is the Chesterfield sofa. This piece of furniture was first made for royals in the 18th century, and is steeped in English tradition. It is this type of product that symbolises the accomplishments resulting from Chesterfield Lounge's UK production, and it stands to reason that it should be manufactured here.
Central to Chesterfield Lounge's approach is their UK-based factory, which produces handcrafted and made to order offerings. The staff at this factory are a fitting example of why British production can never truly be replaced. Everything they do is based on generations of knowledge, keeping the UK business spirit very much alive.
With this move, Chesterfield Lounge will continue to benefit from the many advantages offered by UK production. Each piece will have its own story, its own identify. Keeping the company's UK-based workforce in employment will result in products made with care, as opposed to a factory that is simply aiming to churn out as many units as possible in a day.
It has never been more important for UK businesses to stay in Britain and help to kick start the dwindling economy. Here's hoping that many a future business will follow suit and give customers the best of British.
