Western Europe sales director Neil Horton commented: “Investing in manufacturing, here in the UK, is a terrific acknowledgement of the potential of the range.

“Our customers know we control all elements, produce every component and monitor quality stringently.

“We are confident that the markets will continue to grow, and this new production line will allow us to meet both the current and future demand and allow us to respond and create exciting new trends.”

Bushboard has been manufacturing in the UK since the 1930s, when it was working with Bakelite and moved into laminate after World War Two.

Now the company manufactures surfaces using a variety of engineered worksurfaces, splashbacks, upstands and panelling components in laminate, solid surface and quartz.
