Omega Growth Breaks Through £60m Barrier
British kitchen manufacturer Omega PLC celebrates a record turnover for 2022 of over £60million, an annual growth of 22%. CEO Simon Barber says: “I feel incredibly proud that Omega continues to grow its market share by delivering high quality, innovative, made for life kitchens, on time and in full to our customers. Through strategic investment across the business, we have strengthened our team, infrastructure, production capabilities, product design, and sustainable initiatives. We are well placed to strengthen our position further in the years to come.”
Omega PLC’s impressive growth is the result of tactical and substantial investment to support its trading partners. During the pandemic and Brexit Omega PLC set itself apart from the competition by investing millions to secure materials and increase warehouse capacity, doubling its UK stockholding. This certainty in supplies has allowed Omega PLC to deliver industry-leading service levels and price stability giving customers in both the retail and contract sectors confidence in purchasing. Omega PLC has bolstered its team structure with strategic hires across the business which also contributes to delivering enhanced service.
The developing design team at Omega PLC examines the way people experience their kitchens and homes to deliver innovation and new product development. Omega PLC’s close relationship with its supply chain partners has given the team the flexibility to bring out new product ranges which are held in stock giving Omega PLC the edge over its competitors.
Omega PLC always has one eye on the future, and during this period of growth and development they are prioritising sustainability and aligning these initiatives with product and responsible practises. Omega PLC is part of The Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA), Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, supplying a range of 100% recycled doors and kitchen cabinets are made from 52% recycled material. The manufacturing, warehousing, offices, showroom and delivery services have all received investment to become more energy efficient and decrease CO2 emissions. These assurances drive sales as consumers are increasingly aware of the environmental impact of their purchasing decisions and look for more sustainable products and companies.
Omega PLC Retail Sales Director James Bishton says, “Omega PLC’s unrivalled reliability of service and complete order fulfilment has led to both new customers and existing customers increasing their sales and partnering more closely with us. With our kitchens being made solely in Britain, at our Yorkshire-based production facility, our customers take confidence from the on-time in full delivery promise and as a UK supplier we are always on hand to support our partners swiftly. Our combination of consistent high-quality product and service has been of huge appeal to design consultants, project managers and the end consumer.
Price will always be one of the driving factors in kitchen purchases and during this time of economic uncertainty we are providing customers with price stability in 2023 allowing them to quote in confidence, safe in the knowledge the price will not increase this year.”
Omega PLC Contract Sales Director John Cahill says, “The ability to offer secure supply chain solutions for developers has been a key contributor to the growth of Omega PLC’s contract division in 2022. Together with a focus on after sales service supported with investment in customer service management, a continued growth of our field service infrastructure, as well as the widest range of design led kitchens means that Omega PLC ticks the box at every point to ensure our customers are 100% satisfied.”
2023 is already looking to be another bright year for Omega PLC with new products to be announced in the Spring, growing partnerships in both retail and contracts and steady sales for the start of the year.
