Whittle Jones Chartered Surveyors; agents acting on behalf of Northern Trust Company Ltd are delighted to announce that a growing North East home decor firm has moved to Consett’s Number One Industrial Estate as part of its ongoing expansion plan.

Decor Cladding Direct (DCD) opened its newest showroom on the estate earlier this year, adding to its existing outlets in Sunderland, Washington and Whittle Jones’ Airport Industrial Estate in Newcastle. The Consett unit is the fourth in a chain of planned showrooms across the North of England.

DCD’s parent company has been selling bathrooms and cladding for almost 20 years from its original showroom in Washington. In 2011, an e-commerce website was launched selling cladding nationally to a UK audience.

Managing Director, Phil Mordey said “The move to Consett has allowed us to further extend our reach across the region making it easier for our trade and public customers to get access to our products. We chose Number One Industrial Estate because there has been a lot of investment in this area and Consett has a thriving community with lots of consumer and trade demand for our products. The cladding market is growing rapidly as printing and manufacturing techniques become more and more advanced. We have really seen the product evolve over the last 15 years, particularly within the past 2 years.

Cladding is now considered a far more desirable and aspirational home decor option than ever before with a growing trend to use the product beyond the bathroom and into all areas of the home as well as in commercial areas. We’re hopeful that our new Consett showroom will help us showcase this to a wider audience and allow us to grow our business further as we look to expand throughout the North.”

The company also sells online under the DCD brand www.decorcladdingdirect.com as well as a sister brand, Bathroom Cladding Direct. It also manufactures its own range of Super Paneling cladding products.

Barry Nelson, Regional Property Manager at Whittle Jones added “We are delighted to welcome Decor Cladding Direct to the Number One Industrial Estate, Consett. The company is expanding its operations across the north east and has invested in a high quality trade counter and showroom fit-out in a prominent location on this prestigious estate.”

Number One Industrial Estate is a modern industrial estate covering 462,000 sq ft of commercial space in a range of workshop, industrial, trade and warehouse units. The estate is situated in an established area in Consett with easy access to the A1(M).
