Nuneaton MP visits online bathroom retailer
Local MP Marcus Jones visited multi-channel online bathroom retailer, Luxury For Less, which recently bought the former headquarters of Adams Childrenswear in Nuneaton, as it is bringing 200 jobs to the area.
The firm, which sells bathrooms to the public through BathEmpire.com and to the trade, with its Kirby Sebastian brand has installed new warehousing and offices at the 169,000 sq ft complex.
Founded by entrepreneur Chris Li and university friend Vicky Wang, the company will complete the £5 million move early next year.
BathEmpire.com was recently numbered 49th in the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 and three years’ compound annual sales growth of 73% made it the seventh fastest-growing private company in the Midlands.
Luxury For Less started in Brighton in 2006 and moved to the Coventry area two years later to capitalise on its transport links and commercial space. Last year it turned over £14 million – a figure which is expected to grow to £20million this year.
CEO Chris Li said: “We wanted Marcus to see the building before it is totally finished so he could gauge the level of investment we are undertaking and the scope of the improvements.
“We had the chance to discuss a variety of issues impacting on business, and we are looking forward to having him back when we formally open.”
