Re:Work moves to larger premises to prepare for growth

Social enterprise and office furniture supplier Re:Work last week launched its new Leeds showroom, having relocated to larger premises in preparation for further growth.

With two recruits on the horizon, the new 10,000 sqft office at New Craven Gate will facilitate the social enterprise’s next wave of development. It includes a reception area, showroom, offices, separate warehouse, meeting room and kitchen, along with potential for expansion into an additional 4,000 sqft space.

Split into two halves, one side of the showroom displays the enterprise’s ‘reconomical’ range – while the other will be stocked with its portfolio of new office equipment. The used furniture that is acquired from businesses looking to refresh their workspace, undergoes rigorous in-house quality control and safety checks before being exhibited, whilst the new equipment is mainly supplied by carefully selected UK manufacturers.

Re:Work’s MD Caroline Wherritt said: “The day was a huge success – we are so grateful for all the support we received and even raised £128.80 for a charity, we hold close to our hearts. The new premises felt right as soon as we saw it, so we were delighted to be able to share the launch with friends, family, clients and partners, after the hard work we’ve put in to transform the space.”

Technician Jamie Wherritt commented on the showcasing potential of the new site: “The showroom is what we have wanted since we started almost ten years ago, as it allows us to display exactly what we do. This space really does the furniture justice and there’s even room to promote the more unusual colours and textures that we have on offer, which we couldn’t do in our previous warehouse. Sometimes clients need a little inspiration and I hope this is what these premises offer.”

Further refurbishment work is set to take place imminently, which will see the meeting room being made available to other businesses for free. The showroom itself will also serve a dual purpose, as it can be used as a workspace for staff and other alike.
