A Major Milestone
Another incredible year for Andersons – Another major milestone.
2018 is a major milestone for Andersons as the respected kitchen and joinery supplier celebrates their 130-year anniversary. When company founder Thomas Anderson opened his first sawmill in Carlisle, Cumbria in 1888 there’s no way he could have known that in 2018 people would still flock to his store for peace of mind, outstanding quality and prices you will find hard to beat. That’s 130 years of providing quality for the home, an anniversary worth celebrating.
2017 has seen Andersons break all previous sales records and this is across the board in all our five outlets showing that no matter where you live you will always be drawn towards great products at unbelievable value. This solid platform has allowed us to create our biggest ever winter sale. In coalition with our product partners, we have put together an offer to rival all others and combined with new competitive finance options, all the ingredients are there to ensure our upcoming biggest ever winter sale is stacked with one off offers and is the ideal opportunity for you to purchase a kitchen. This year we have strongly negotiated to ensure we are in the best position ever to offer outstanding offers on all our core products as a celebration of our 130 years in business. Bare in mind where else can you purchase an item in December/January at an overall cost of say £ 3000-5000 for a deposit of just £ 500.00 and have it delivered at any point in 2018.
Our commitment to the customer and philosophy is exactly the same as it was 130 years ago, we design your dream kitchen around you, whilst remaining on budget and deliver when is convenient for you, no hard sell, just best price first time, every time. To celebrate the landmark of 130 years in business and as a one off, we are giving customers the opportunity to redeem a voucher for £ 130.00 (Inc. Vat) which they can use against their kitchen purchase anytime during our biggest ever winter sale.
From being predominantly a Timber Merchants and Joinery manufacturers back in 1888, the company has expanded and diversified its operation. Today Andersons is known as a leading supplier, importer and manufacturer of kitchens, doors, floors, timber and timber products. Still family run, the company understands the importance of having strong roots and the loyalty of its staff is second to none. Success and loyalty go hand in hand and in two of our outlets we have staff who have been with the company for over 30 years proving our unique working relationship not only benefits the customer, but rewards the staff for their considerable efforts. It should be highlighted that our customers are extremely loyal too, and we are now fitting kitchens for the third generation of the same families.
Andersons continues to be a pioneer in what is an extremely competitive sector in offering up to the minute design alternatives as well as unrivalled experience and we continue to remain one step ahead of our competitors. When it comes to offering new and exciting products we are at the forefront and this year has been no exception with the launch of our highly anticipated new id3 next generation cabinet. This cabinet has been designed and engineered for exceptional durability and offers a range of innovative features such as the latest soft close technology and LED sensor lighting. Furthermore, all id3 cabinets are covered by a unique lifetime guarantee.
Despite our significant presence in print media, local radio and national television the majority of our sales still comes from recommendation and referrals. Service and expertise is our priority and our kitchen departments are brimming with kitchen experience leaving us in no doubt that no stone will go unturned when taking your project from inception to completion.
Having a strong community focus is vital and that is why we continue to support the local areas where we have a presence. We have maintained our drive to try to stimulate growth and this is something we feel extremely passionately about. Already in 2017 Andersons has forged several successful partnerships with schools, colleges and universities in offering various timber products for wood work, drama sets and joinery classes. In this time of budget cuts every penny counts and having been in business since 1888 we know forging local alliances allows people to take advantage of one to one personal service, all at a fraction of the costs normally associated with quality timber products.
Managing Director Vince Woods commented “As a company we realise the importance of customers being able to envisage their new dream kitchen whilst visiting our showrooms and that’s why our displays remain practical and innovative. It’s important to let customers touch and feel the quality on show and combined with our accommodating and expertly trained staff we create an environment where dreams really do come true”. Vince added “Increasingly we find major players in this industry asking clients to bring them their Andersons quotes so that they can beat it because they know our policy of best price first time. This shows we are now the benchmark for price and even multi nationals use our prices as the yardstick”.
