Manufacturing isn’t dead

Shackletons took its latest range of comfort furniture to the Bournemouth Care Show this month to share what is good about Yorkshire manufacturing and craftsmanship.

Although deemed as a challenging time for manufacturing the care show illustrated there is demand for quality designed and manufactured furniture.

Shackletons returned to Yorkshire with national enquiries and a renewed optimism that will continue to build on the company’s continued growth.

Jason Bloom, National Sales Manager at Shackletons says: “There is no doubt we are operating in a challenging market but the trend in our business has seen sales increase with the Bournemouth Care Show indicating we are on track to continue growing.”

Of particular interest to care sector buyers is Shackletons absolute understanding and experience of what it takes to manufacture home from home furniture that is designed not just for older people but dementia sufferers too.

Jason continues: “Without compromising on style or design our person-centred approach is a winning formula when it comes to care homes looking to achieve a better quality of life for their residents. Care home operators recognise quality of care is linked to better design within the care home environment and we manufacture our fit for purpose furniture with those needs in mind.”
