Record order intake reported by Mansfield business Deanestor

Posted onPosted on 9th Aug

Mansfield-based Deanestor, one of the UK’s leading contract furniture and fit-out specialists, has announced a record order intake.

Orders of £12.5m were secured in the last six months — a significant increase on the same period in 2018.
Contracts have been awarded for delivery through to 2020 across a diverse range of sectors — private rental schemes, student accommodation, healthcare and education.

A large proportion of the projects are for repeat clients — both developers and contractors — following Deanestor’s successful performance on previous schemes.

Commenting on the record order intake, William Tonkinson, managing director of Deanestor, (pictured) said, “We are delighted with the performance of the business in the first half of this year.

“We have been very successful in diversifying into new markets, which has provided a healthy forward order book and a solid foundation for the business in an uncertain economic environment.

“We are the longest established furniture and fit-out provider to the NHS with a track record that spans more than 70 years. It is fantastic to see this work continue but also the success of our move into other areas, such as high-quality kitchens for major private residential developments.”

A total of £6.8m of the orders are for the manufacture and fitting of fixed furniture for new build-to-rent schemes and student residences. In the healthcare sector, Deanestor will be providing furniture for the £350m Grange University Hospital in Gwent. Deanestor’s largest project in the education sector is a £3m contract for the new £55m Inverurie Community Campus.

The Mansfield-based manufacturer will furnish and fit out 360 rooms across the campus in just 26 weeks. This will include the manufacture of 1,950 metres of shelving, 670 metres of laminate and laboratory worktops, 400 base and wall storage units, over 80 teaching walls, and more than 500 items of metalwork.

Deanestor has manufacturing and distribution facilities in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, spanning 165,000 sqft across three sites and employs 150 staff.

It provides high quality contract furniture solutions to construction clients and contractors for healthcare, education, student accommodation, build-to-rent and laboratory projects – both new build and refurbishment.

It offers bespoke design services to meet specific project requirements and is responsible for installation to provide a seamless approach for its customers and a single point of contact.
