A family-owned kitchen design and installation business has opened its fourth site in Birmingham.

Classic Interiors, which was founded in 1987 in Redditch and also has showrooms in Solihull and Worcester, has opened the doors to premises on the Harborne Road in Edgbaston.

Lloyds Bank provided a six figure funding package to support the deal.

Mark Corfield, relationship manager at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, said: “Opening up in Edgbaston was a natural next step for Classic Interiors and the business was just waiting for the right property to come up. We’re committed to helping Britain prosper, so it’s fantastic to see the expansion set to increase turnover by as much as 30 per cent and five new jobs created locally.

“To help businesses like Classic Interiors take the next step, we recently announced that we would be lending up to £2.5bn to West Midlands firms in 2019.”

Thursfields’ solicitor Emma Hughes, who completed the lease work for Classic Interiors said: “When companies are expanding and investing in new premises, they don’t need the added pressures relating to the legal aspects of the transaction, and we were very happy to provide the assurance and advice needed.”

Tony Gibb, head of the commercial property team at Thursfields, added: “It’s always exciting to help the ongoing success of a local, family-owned firm.

“Max and the team at Classic Interiors are committed to the Midlands and we were delighted to lend our commercial property expertise to make sure that their expansion into the second city went like clockwork, and we’re pleased that it has.”
