Leicht hits £1m of contracts after first year in operation

Leicht Contracts has reached the milestone of £1m of kitchen contracts, having been in operation for almost a year, with performance that seems to have mirrored what its retail arm had achieved in 2013/14.

According to KBBDaily, the company’s biggest contract win to date has been to supply 93 kitchens for St George’s Reach Battersea, a new residential development by the Berkeley Group at Battersea Reach. Leicht is also supplying a total of 79 kitchens for two new developments by Regal Homes in Hackney.Other contracts include supplying handleless kitchens to developments in St Ives and Polzeath in Cornwall as well as in Bristol; 41 apartments in Staines; and 10 kitchens for the America Square development on Fenchurch.
Leicht Contracts managing director Liam Hopper said: “We hit the ground running when we formed this company last year and have liaised closely with upmarket developers who want chic, contemporary kitchens in the latest finishes and colours that fit in with today’s modern urban living.”

The retail side of Leicht Kitchens experienced above average growth in the UK in 2014 including the addition of 12 new dealers in London, the North and Midlands and in doing so the German kitchen manufacturer saw an increased turnover of 15.5% in the first eight months of 2014 and its number of dealerships in the UK surge to 80 so it seems apt that contract kitchens arm to the business mirror the above market growth.

Leicht’s UK sales director Graham Hopper attributes the company’s success to its flexibility and affordability, adding: “Leicht manufacture all of their own doors and do their own lacquering so we have total control of the whole process and can offer customers a quality and variety that they like at a price they can afford.”

For more than 80 years now, LEICHT has been causing a stir with premium kitchens. The expert interaction of all components and the brilliant combination of material, colour, architecture and light make kitchens come to life.
