A WREXHAM company that designs and produces some of the world’s finest furniture and bespoke interiors set for a Far East trade mission.

Silverlining, based on Wrexham Industrial Estate will showcase its products during the Welsh Government's Hong Kong and Shanghai trade mission in March.

is looking to boost its workforce over the next five years from 70 to 130 people.

The company creates and fits bespoke ultra-luxury interiors and as a result of its success is now considering setting up its own Academy to train its future workforce.

Its order books are full for over a year, and it often takes more than 18 months to deliver on a single project.

After outgrowing its previous base in Cheshire the company moved to the Wrexham Industrial Estate, and is considering establishing a training academy.

Silverlining CEO Mark Boddington said: “I am committed to North Wales as the headquarters for my company and I am extremely confident that an unprecedented expansion will continue here. The UK is very good at niche advance manufacturing and as a country we need to export more using these talents

“When we moved to Wales I found the Welsh Government helpful, quick and responsive to our needs and understanding of our ambitions. The skilled people I needed could be found locally and overall costs were cheaper.

Commenting on the company’s exclusive products he said: “If we simply inlaid wood it would be game over. We aim to be the very best in the world through a combination of creative design, innovative craftsmanship and advanced materials and technology– we believe we can become the Rolls Royce of the furniture business in the years ahead.”

Welsh Government economy and transport secretary, Ken Skates AM, said: “Silverlining is clearly a world class player at the very top of the furniture industry. It’s good to see how it is planning to develop skills here in North Wales so it can expand further, and ensure the exceptionally high standard of their product continues.

“I welcome their commitment to the region and I am pleased to see they are taking advantage of the opportunities offered by the Welsh Government’s trade missions. I wish them every success in Hong Kong and Shanghai”
