Rixonway Kitchens wins £3.2m Council contract
Dewsbury-based Rixonway Kitchens has won a five-year contract worth £3.2m to supply new kitchens to West Lancashire Borough Council as part of the biggest ever housing regeneration programme to take place in the area.
Rixonway will supply 3,788 new kitchens which will be installed in council homes by Lovell and Wates across the borough after the Council pledged to invest £55m over five years to transform its social housing stock.
Thousands of tenants stand to benefit from the improvements that will also see 4,864 bathrooms replaced, new doors and windows fitted to properties and the installation of new energy efficient heating systems during the same period.
Work to replace the kitchens is scheduled to start in April and Rixonway’s team of onsite designers have begun to visit tenants to help plan the layout of their new kitchens.
In total 1,400 kitchens will be installed in the first year. Tenants will be able to talk to designers about how they want their new fully fitted kitchen to look and will have a choice of five options for replacement doors, door handles, worktops, wall tiles, flooring and decor.
The contract was awarded to Rixonway following a competitive tendering process through the national Fusion21 Supplier Framework run by procurement organisation.
David Anderson, sales and marketing director at Rixonway Kitchens, said: “This is a very significant refurbishment project for the Council and we are delighted to have won a contract of this size which is a real achievement for our business.
“This is a great scheme to be involved in that will make a huge difference to people’s lives. Some of the kitchens we’re replacing have been there for 30 years, so we’re very happy to play our part in regenerating the area.”
