Burnley bed and furniture manufacting firm plans expansion

BED and furniture manufacturer Sweet Dreams intends to extend its premises to have a warehouse on site.

The firm has announced that it has bought a 2.5 acre site next to its current premises at Primrose Mill, Burnley. Currently, products are stored at a second location in the town.

“Being able to organise deliveries from a single site will add enormously to our efficiency,” said Sweet Dreams sales manager Jackie McGarvey. “It will also mean that we have space to expand our production operations and to create a permanent showroom.”

The investment effectively secures the long-term future of Sweet Dreams at Primrose Mill site, which had been under pressure of space over the last few years as the company diversified into new lines and extended its manufacturing facility.

Earlier this year it increased its workforce and started manufacturing sofas and chairs. Work on the new building has already begun and is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
