Investing in our future marks a milestone in the ambition of why MARK was established and how we as a business approach our responsibilities as a sustainable British manufacturer.
The new building, which will also house the offices of MARK’s sister interior design company Hart Miller Design, symbolises the company’s commitment to manufacturing in the UK and to their local community and workforce.
“This is major milestone in the development of our company. We have outgrown our current premises and they do not meet the high sustainability standards we have set ourselves” explains MARK’s co-founder John Miller.
A key factor is location. Although in a rural setting, MARK’s new factory is strategically located at the heart of their Cornish supply base.
Central to the towns of Redruth, Camborne, Helston and Penryn, the location ensures most of MARK’s products will only travel a few miles as they progress from raw material to finished furniture.
“Having designed the building in-house” adds Anna “enables us to create a space that is just right for our business now and for future growth. Some practical things to do with the way we make furniture, but also how we wanted it to work and feel for our team”
