Rearo, the bathroom and kitchen surface manufacturer and supplier, has completed a £200,000 expansion to its Govan headquarters.

The company, which has showrooms across the UK from Shetland to Newport, has added 2,000 square feet to its Govan HQ and expects the expansion will create 10 jobs.

The new space houses the company’s new marketing suite and sampling centre, staff facilities and an expanded transport office. It links the existing 69,000 sq ft manufacturing and quality control facility with the company’s fulfillment centre, and will improve efficiency for customer orders.

Graham Mercer, managing director of Rearo said: “Increasing online sales and demands, as well as significant contract wins in the hotel, restaurant and social housing sectors meant improving the flow of our products was essential.

“Rearo continues to grow across the UK. We have moved into larger premises in Newcastle to meet demand, and we’re opening a new distribution hub in Northampton to enhance our reach into the south of England.

“Our product lines continue to expand: our hero product Selkie will soon become available online, and Buhne and Lifeshield ranges were recently introduced for commercial customers.

“We have significant plans for Rearo in the coming year and the new facility in Glasgow will play a key role in helping us achieve them.”

Rearo received a Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) grant from Scottish Enterprise to part-fund the expansion and construction work was carried out neighbouring firm AGM Group.
