Shackletons & The Maria Mallaband Care Group announce new partnership

Shackletons Ltd have been in the furniture industry for over 50 years and are famous for designing, manufacturing and creating comfortable, long lasting craftsman-made furniture for the nursing and care home industry. The Maria Mallaband Care Group (MMCG) have been using Shackletons furniture since we began in 1996, so we know the quality is good and is specially designed for its functionality, practicality and comfort.

MMCG has recently taken over 35 Southern Cross care homes and launched Countrywide Care Homes to manage the homes. We felt that these homes also needed the special touch of Shackletons and we are now pleased to be able to announce this partnership.

Commenting on the deal, James Burgan, Commercial Director said: “We have grown quickly in a short space of time and they have always been committed and shown dedication and compassion to our own changing needs. The Countrywide Care Homes will take our group into a new sector – this is a very exciting time for both organisations. We expect the same high standards, quality and comfort from the furniture and furnishings we use in all our care homes, and we are positive that Shackletons will not only meet, but exceed our expectations. It has been a pleasure working with Shackletons over the years and long may this continue.”

Jason Bloom, National Sales Manager, commented: “Shackletons are very proud to be associated with a caring, progressive and superior quality care home group such as MMCG. Our corporate goals and that deserving of our furniture, is to align ourselves with the very best operators in the sector and MMCG and Countrywide Care Homes are certainly one of those. We look forward to extending our already successful relationship”.
