Upholsterer finds a new seat at Pensnett07/08/2017
An upholsterer and furniture repair specialist with more than 20 years’ experience has opened his own business in the Black Country.
Gary Burns, who has worked for nationally known companies before setting up Classic Furniture Care 12 months ago, has agreed terms with leading investment and property management company LCP for his first standalone premises at The Pensnett Estate, Kingswinford.
He has taken Building 53A, Bay 6, a 426 sq ft unit at LCP’s flagship industrial estate after moving his fledgling business, which undertakes reupholstery, upholstery repairs and leather repairs, out of his mother’s garage.
“It was always my intention to have my own business premises and I wanted to make sure I had established myself as a sole trader before doing that,” said Gary, who lives nearby.
“I’ve been to The Pensnett Estate a number of times over the past 20 years for my work and was really pleased to find that it offered small units on flexible terms, which is ideal for start up businesses, so I was keen to take one on when I discovered the terms it could offer.”
Paula James, LCP industrial lettings manager, said: “The Pensnett Estate offers a huge range of premises for occupiers – from small start-up office spaces and industrial units of 450 sq ft to large buildings of 90,000 sq ft and more. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Gary as his business grows.”
