Kurt travelled from the company’s corporate office in Michigan, USA, to meet the full UK team at the Maidenhead base. This is his first visit since La-Z-Boy acquired the licence for the UK and Ireland earlier this year.
Kurt says, “The new headquarters is looking fantastic, with the development of our showroom well underway. It’s been great to visit the premises and meet the team. Everyone is working hard to expand the brand in this territory. I congratulate the team for a fantastic start to 2017 and we are looking forward to building the business in the months and years ahead.”
La-Z-Boy’s plans in the UK for 2017 include a new showroom, the launch of the Originals collection and in-store galleries, as well as the opening of a European manufacturing facility.
MD of La-Z-Boy UK Ltd, Keith Wilson, adds, “We’re really grateful to Kurt for taking the time to officially mark the opening of our UK headquarters. This is a very exciting time for the brand. We’re in a fantastic location which we hope will be convenient for our customers to visit once our showroom launches. We have a car park and could not be closer to the railway station, so we’ll be more than happy to welcome anyone along.”
