Flexiform is a steel furniture manufacturing company with over 40 years of experience. Our manufacturing facility started off in Leeds. However, with growth, we moved to Bradford, ensuring we keep our northern roots.
We believe in the power of the North’s long history of manufacturing, and its ability to stimulate growth and innovation in the UK economy. With the recent changes in the Flexiform manufacturing facility, we’re incredibly proud to announce that we have joined the Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme.
The Northern Powerhouse is the Government’s vision for a super-connected, globally-competitive northern economy with a flourishing private sector, a highly-skilled population, and world-renowned civic and business leadership. The Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme is an essential part of creating the Northern Powerhouse. Government is growing a network of partners who all believe strongly in the economic potential of the North, and support the need for a combined effort by government and business to realise that potential. There are businesses and organisations from across the North from a variety of sectors signed up to the partner programme.
Nick Hewitt, Managing Director said:
“Our 118,000 sq. ft production facility is currently undergoing significant multi-million-pound investment to facilitate our growth plans. This year we have invested over £1m in Laser and Bender technologies with further investment to follow. As a result, Flexiform has been listed in the Business Desktop 50 fastest-growing companies across the Leeds City Region. Not only will this investment strategy increase local employment, it will also allow us to grow and build on our reputation as key Northern manufacturers”.
Minister for the Northern Powerhouse, the Rt Hon Jake Berry, MP said:
“The North is world-famous for its manufacturing and steel industries so it’s fitting that Flexiform have become the latest members of our Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme.
“Flexiform’s growth and increased investment in the Leeds City Region provides good, well-paid jobs and they are well placed to work with us to build on our significant £145 million Local Growth Fund investment across Yorkshire to ensure businesses can take full advantage of the global opportunities coming from our departure from the EU on 31 October.”
