REM (UK) Ltd, located in the heart of the Pennines, is proud to announce the largest ever investment in its manufacturing facility based in Nelson, Lancashire.
Having a history tracing back to 1918, REM design, manufacture and distribute high quality furniture and equipment for the Hair, Beauty and Spa Industry. The Directors secured funding for the quarter of a million pounds project completed in March 2017. Thanks to the £10,000 award representing 10% of the eligible project expenditure of£200,000 from Lancashire Business Growth Fund the company was able to proceed with the project.
A new, state of the art, timber CNC machine, supplied by Homag, has been aptly named ‘Eugene’ after the Company’s founder, Eugene Suter, who operated out of London around 1918. The dust extraction system running alongside the CNC was designed and installed by Indusvent. ‘Eugene’ will further enhance the company’s furniture range, providing improved quality, internal efficiencies and subsequently, shorter lead times for customers. Thanks to the grant REM have been able to secure 4 jobs and can continue to supporting the local economy as they push on with their growth strategy. ‘Eugene’ will be instrumental in this design process and the realisation of the new Centenary range which marks REM’s centenary next year.
Commenting on being awarded the grant Financial Director Chris Blakey said: “The awarding of £10,000 has been instrumental in purchasing Eugene enabling us to press ahead with our ambitious expansion plans centred on our Centenary range”
