No Brexit worries for UK based Alexander Joseph..


the cordless lamp manufacturer have invested £500,000 in UK assembly facility and cut production lead times from twelve to four weeks

Dorset based Alexander Joseph, the manufacturer of luxury cordless lamps have cut the cord with production lead times now taking only 4 weeks to produce their unique and beautiful ranges.

The final commissioning of the Alexander Joseph production facilities in Dorset spent a months working to reduce lead times on made to order products where lead times have now been cut by two thirds to just four weeks.

The company launched it's ‘first to market' luxury cordless lamps in September 2018 - where it was quoting lead times of up to twelve weeks. All design, development and manufacturing of the cordless lamps are in the UK.

Steve Burns, Technical Director at Alexander Joseph explains the reduction in lead times.

"We started investing in a production workshop prior to our launch but recognised it would be sometime before it was fully operational, primarily due to the supply of specialist equipment. We are delighted to announced that we've now opened our new facility, which means we can quadruple our production."

He continued:

"Many companies are worried about Brexit and the changes that may happen to UK industry, so we decided to invest an additional £500,000 in materials and storage space here in the south.

Viewed collectively these measures significantly reduce lead times for our luxury products and means that we continue to invest in British industry, recruit, train and develop more jobs for the local economy and consequently the UK in general."

The company's creative & design studio will remain at its current location in Dorset for the time being, however it is hoped the two functions, along with the business's offices will eventually be amalgamated under one roof.

The online shop makes the range available to resellers, interior designers, furniture retailers, hotels, restaurants, spa resorts, boat builders and architects.
