Global expansion

A fast-growing furniture business Furniturebox, based in Chippenham, has set its sights on global growth after its sales increased to almost £17m in seven years.

The company, founded by Monty George and Dan Beckles after they left school in Salisbury, reported selling £16.7m worth of furniture, up from £9.4m in 2020, and generating an annual profit of £2.4m, following a period of rapid growth during the pandemic.

Furniturebox, which employs around 50 staff at its recently completed £3m, 88,000 sq ft headquarters, said it was now looking to break into countries such as Germany and the US.

One of the founders, Mr. George said “We have so much talent in the South West. We would never head to London because we are so much happier here.”
