New kitchen showroom to open in Mumbles

Helping safeguard and boost local employment, a new luxury kitchen showroom will soon be opening in Mumbles.

Run by locally-based Green’s Kitchens and Furniture, the showroom on Newton Road will enable the business to showcase its luxury and bespoke joinery works.

Thanks to business growth grant funding from Swansea Council through the UK Government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund, Green’s have also been able to develop a strong relationship with Sub Zero and Wolf – a luxury kitchen appliance company based in London. This means Green’s will become the largest showroom of their appliances outside Knightsbridge.

Green’s is one of many businesses in communities across Swansea to benefit from grant funding.

As well as bespoke kitchens, the showroom on Newton Road will also include luxury kitchen appliances and other fixtures and fittings, including brands such as BORA, V-ZUG, Fisher & Paykel, Buster & Punch, and others.

Green’s Kitchens and Furniture is the joinery department of Green’s Carpentry and Building Services, which specialises in high-end residential building projects.

Using funding from the grant, Green’s will also buy virtual reality headsets to give clients a virtual experience when designing homes. Computer hardware and software will also be purchased to assist the company’s designers with their work.

Company director Andy Green said: “We’re excited about the opening of the new showroom in Mumbles, which will be one of the best facilities of its kind in the UK. With the assistance of Swansea Council and the Shared Prosperity Fund, we will be able to safeguard a large number of careers and provide our team with a growth plan which will see further employment opportunities in the years to come.

“As a result of this project, there should be a significant increase in demand, meaning we’d need to employ further showroom staff, another designer, and more tradespeople, as we look to work with clients throughout the UK.

“Without the grant funding from Swansea Council through the UK Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund, we wouldn’t be able to fund the project to the extent that’s needed to give clients the ultimate experience, improve sales, grow as a business, retain staff and employ more people.”

Cllr Robert Francis-Davies, Swansea Council’s Cabinet Member for Investment, Regeneration and Tourism, said: “Green’s is a terrific example of a local business success story that’s soon taking the next step to grow, retain staff and potentially employ more people in future.

“This is great news for Swansea’s economy and for local employment, so we’re delighted to have been able to help with grant funding.

“This is part of our commitment to boost the local economy and support as many businesses as possible in Swansea.”
