Bathroom retailer CP Hart unveiled a new 4,000 sq ft showroom at 261-267 Deansgate on Thursday night, following a £400,000 investment in new premises in Manchester.
The Manchester sales team now includes five full time employees, including a dedicated interior design specialist. In addition, customers are also provided access to a customer care and technical services team.
The previous showroom was based in Deansgate Locks. The new showroom, the company's largest outside London, features bathroom collections from Philippe Starck, Alessi and Sir Norman Foster, as well as CP Hart's own in-house ranges.
Customers, architects, and interior designers attended a launch party last night entertained by Halle music group Litmus.
Paul Rowland, managing director of CP Hart, said: "When it came to deciding where to focus our ambitions for company growth, Manchester was the natural choice. The North West is home to a very discerning buyer that appreciates quality and design and so it seemed only right to invest in our offer to this customer."
