After 125 years in business you’d logically think that Ellis has a wealth of knowledge, experience and talent within its 200-strong team, and you’d be right. You might also think that a business of 125 years maybe doesn’t have the very latest high-street interior styles in its offer………well that’s where you couldn’t be more wrong.
Richard Ellis explains the company journey during his 20 years in charge and its move to design led interior solutions “over 125 years I’m delighted that we’re the recognised leader for making bullet-proof furniture for use in some of the hardest working domestic and contract environments, and we’re delighted that this material and build quality is still highly valued by our long-standing customer base. Of course, build quality is only part of today’s requirements, and over recent years we’ve moved away from traditional styles and put Design right at the heart of our business as the latest high-street interior fashions and trends have become de rigueur on projects of all types across the country. We now boast a collection of on-trend decors and colourways that would grace even the swankiest designer showroom, and with our flexible manufacturing systems the mix and match options are almost endless.
Having all these options is of course fabulous for our customers, but we know sometimes making the important decisions on whether a Stone Grey carcase looks better with Chocolate Grey or Light Grey doors, and whether a contrasting edge on the worktop adds the finishing touch can be difficult. So we’ve made those decisions a whole lot easier by creating a slick colour visualiser that can display any combination of colours that you might imagine, all at the click of a mouse. For our bathroom furniture range we also have a neat ‘Bathroom Styler’ iPad app that does exactly the same thing, this is used by consumers and showrooms across the UK to great effect. As well as our ‘digital’ design experience, we’ve also invested in a brand new Design Centre at our Huddersfield base where we have over 25 full size kitchen/bedroom/bathroom displays showing the very latest styles and combinations to great effect. The Design Centre is visited by customers regularly to prepare for upcoming projects and aid making those all-important design decisions, and we’d be delighted to welcome you to the Design Centre any time.
The often-unseen element of the Ellis brand is our outstanding service, whether that’s advice and space planning at the early stage of a project, manufacturing products early to allow rapid call-off when required, delivery by our own fleet and drivers, or completing hundreds of installations over a very short period, our service offer underpins our success over 125 years and its why customers work with us year after year.
As with any modern business we’re never standing still and we have some very exciting initiatives to launch early in 2017, including a new bathroom furniture product and service offer which we feel gives our customers something totally unique and exciting from a brand they already know and trust…………..more to follow on this soon”.
