Upsurge in orders prompts expansion for luxury car upholstery specialists

Following an unprecedented increase in orders over the past twelve months, luxury car upholstery specialists Ruskin Design has marked the start of a planned expansion programme by appointing two new members to its team.

The company, which has its workshop and headquarters in Wigston, Leicester, has seen a 25% rise in bespoke upholstery commissions compared to this time last year, with particular growth in the Land Rover Defender and luxury car sectors.

To accommodate this growth and to pave the way for further predicted growth, Ruskin has appointed Nick Hemsley to bolster the car trimming department together with a business administrator to manage the business support systems, bringing the team to eleven strong.

Ruskin Design’s managing director Steve Castledine said: “We’ve had major and sustained growth in orders over this financial year, so much so that we now have the confidence to put into motion our planned expansion programme.

“These are very exciting times for us. The expansion of the design and administration teams is just the beginning of the first phase in our plan and will pave the way for our future growth, including the possibility of relocation to larger premises towards the end of 2017.

“The demand for our trade mark brand, Ruskin Inside™, especially within the Land Rover Defender market has been unprecedented. We are the only dedicated interior upholsterers in the UK offering this kind of hand-crafted luxury and as our profile has grown, the orders have grown too.

“Discerning car owners have long recognised the increase in value that a luxury interior upgrade brings to their vehicle and with the increase in popularity of having your car personally designed, inside and out, to your own specification, our market has seen an upsurge across the board.

“We’re delighted to welcome our new members of staff to the Ruskin Design team at this crucial and exciting time in our development”.
