Business growth sees furniture maker get comfortable at new site

Acclaim Upholstery, a family furniture maker based in Long Eaton, has moved into two neighbouring units in Castle Donington and is aiming to employ 55 additional workers in the coming months, boosting its staffing levels by more than half.

The firm leased the two units on Trent Lane in October and has already taken on 30 new staff, with plans to take on an additional 15 more very soon.

Aidan Travers, Commerical Director at Acclaim Upholstery, said, “We’re very pleased to be expanding into these additional premises and taking on new staff. This will help us to meet the increasing demand for our high quality, handmade English upholstered furniture.”

Alex Reid, Commercial Director at Mather Jamie, said, “Castle Donington is ideally located in terms of transporting goods, and these two units on Trent Lane should serve Acclaim very well as the company grows.”

Acclaim Upholstery is a family business founded in 1983, which specialises in creating bespoke furniture, featuring the signatures of the upholsterer who created it. For more information about the company, visit
