Furniture Clinic has opened a new 3,000 sq ft premises in New York to allow it to offer its products to customers and suppliers across America.
Specialising in leather cleaning and repair products, Furniture Clinic provides specialist care kits to consumers and retailers across the world.
Since its launch in 2005, Furniture Clinic has experienced significant growth and, more recently, a surge in international sales through its website.
With a large amount of stock being distributed to the United States, managing director Ben Staerck took the decision to open the New York office to provide a better service to US-based customers and allow it to further increase its reach in the country.
In addition to providing a distribution hub for online sales, the New York office offers a walk in service to allow customers to seek advice and purchase products in-store.
Speaking of his decision to open the office, Mr Staerck said: “We had been considering Furniture Clinic’s expansion for a while and as the business continued to grow we felt like it was the right time to go ahead with our plans.
“Many customers in the US can be put off by a company that does not have a base in the country and we felt that the opening of this office would really help us to expand as a business and firmly establish our brand internationally."
There are currently three employees at the New York office and there are plans to increase the workforce over the coming months. Craig Boyd, who originally worked as general manager at the north east branch, is heading up the New York operation.
All products will continue to be manufactured in the UK and will be exported to America for distribution.
Mr Staerck continued: “It has been a fantastic few years for Furniture Clinic and we are looking ahead to the future with real excitement and optimism.
“All of our products were developed in-house, and the fact we are supplying customers around the world is a real achievement. Our customers really love our kits and we’re always looking at ways to further expand the business and improve our product range and services.
“Our future plans include the opening of further offices in the United States and hopefully other areas of the world. Additionally, we’re hoping to increase our presence and workforce in the north east and the rest of the UK.”
