The 15 new staff members include project managers and technical staff. Matt Duncan, pictured, a former sales manager of Leicht Kitchens UK, has been appointed to head up the contracts team alongside managing director Liam Hopper working on the commercial side of the business.
“When many kitchen companies are still coming out of recession, we have seen phenomenal growth,” said Hopper. “We have won numerous contracts for high-end developments as building developers and architects recognise the quality and design of Leicht kitchens at a price that is highly competitive.
“To service these contracts we are appointing new staff throughout 2015 and have grown in under a year from a company of just a handful of employees to a key player in the kitchen contracts market.”
Founded in Germany 80 years ago, LEICHT kitchens have been the kitchen of choice for thousands of homes across the globe. LEICHT kitchens became established in the UK 30 years ago and are now stocked in over 70 independent kitchen showrooms across the UK. LEICHT Contracts was formally established in 2013 to offer high quality, stunning kitchens throughout the south of England and the Channel Islands.
As a popular choice for UK house builders, developers, architects and interior designers, because of the wide range of designs, flexibility and excellent value for money, LEICHT Contracts offers kitchens for developments from simple refurbishments to high end new build housing developments and inner city build schemes. Whether you want high gloss contemporary fitted kitchens, or traditional shaker style kitchen doors, we have 38 individual programmes to choose from, ranging from simple laminated doors to high end matt, silk, gloss or textured lacquers or veneers.
LEICHT contract kitchens is based in Sevenoaks just outside the M25 ring, and our UK team covers all aspects of kitchen contracts including sales, ordering, technical, marketing, customer support, training, showroom design and accounts.
