Kitchen furniture manufacturer Leicht has opened a factory in Waldstetten, Germany, following two years of construction.
The plant represents a €90million investment for the company and it is automated, from the start of the cabinet manufacture to the loading of the final product.
Kitchens International is Leicht’s largest UK customer, designing and installing projects for both retail and contracts markets.
Brand manager of Kitchens International Paul O’Brien said: “Leicht is one of our key suppliers and this new production facility will allow more kitchen cabinets to be manufactured in a faster time, yet still providing high quality for the kitchens we design.
“We’re excited at offering our clients even more variety and more sophisticated cabinetry.
“We aim to have many of the new designs in our showrooms next year.”
