Warehouse expansion for Serene Furnishings

Serene Furnishings, the bedroom furniture supplier, has taken more space at its West Bromwich warehouse to accommodate new products.

It has taken an additional 35,300 sq ft at the site on The Hill Top Estate, after asking London & Cambridge Properties, which owns and manages the estate, to find it extra space to accommodate a new range of products that it plans to unveil at the Interiors UK exhibition at the NEC in January 2015.

The company now occupies 158,331 sq ft and is now LCP’s biggest tenant on the estate.

Nadirah Habib, director, who runs the firm with husband Tasleem Tasab, said they were now looking to take on up to four new members of staff to add to the 40 that already work in the business, which supplies more than 700 retailers across the UK.

“We’ve had to take on bigger units as the company has grown and this new range that we are going to stock means we need even more space,” she said. “We’ve been at Hill Top since 2008 and have moved to different warehouses on the estate whenever we have needed it, which is great because LCP has been able to accommodate us.”
