Mereway Kitchens History

By on May 11, 2013

Mereway kitchens began production over 25 years ago in Birmingham. They had a philosophy of producing quality from the start but kept an eye on pricing to remain competitive. The original Mereway kitchens only had doors which meant that retailers had to source the doors separately. Of course they have come a long way since those days and now compete easily with the best of German kitchens. After 25 years of steady growth the continuing investment in new products and brands is proving to be a successful formula. The British market for kitchens is always linked to a healthy economy and good house sales. This has not been the case for several years yet Mereway continues to grow. Robert Norris the CEO puts this down to good quality, continuous investment in innovative products and new brands keeping the company in the forefront of this difficult market.

The growth has given a boost to the local economy with high quality new manufacturing jobs being created every month.

Mereway Kitchens Brands

Mereway have a number of brands now which does make the range confusing. They build Cucina Colore which is designed along the lines of Italian kitchens, the door finishes vary from gloss lacquer to wood veneer. Mereway complete are the more conventional kitchen designs and include modern and traditional styles and this is where you will also find shaker wood and painted kitchens. Trend kitchens are a new development and this is a wide ranging collection however this range is more price sensitive.

The English Revival collection is Mereway kitchens attempt at a more handbuilt look and it works really well. The design is Inframe where the door is built into a wooden frame to look like a more traditional build. These kitchens compete against the bespoke wood kitchens and if you want the look but not the price this is the one for you.
