Located in Westend Mill on Long Eaton’s Leopold Street (opposite Harrington Mill), The Exchange already serves various functions, acting as the headquarters of trade association the BFM and digital agency Orbital, as well as being a new regional HQ for The Furniture Makers’ Company.
It is also a new showroom location for the biannual Long Point exhibition, taking place from September 17 to 19.
“The Exchange is a hub,” says Orbital’s director, Matt O’Flynn, “set up for the purpose of providing the industry with a central point to convene and conduct its business in a neutral and professional environment.
“Home to the BFM, and the new Heart of England charity region for The Furniture Makers’ Company, the Long Eaton Guild will also use the space for their board meetings, as will the BFM. Additionally, it is the home to Orbital, a marketing and design agency set up to focus on the furniture market.
“The Exchange is also a new home for a growing number of manufacturers in the showroom space it has within the facility.”
The opening party will commence at 6pm on September 17. Present will be Maggie Throup, Conservative MP for the Erewash constituency, who was recently appointed the chair of the All Party Parliamentary Furniture Industry Group (APPFIG).
