Kitchen manufacturer Omega Plc recently welcomed Her Royal Highness, Countess of Wessex to open the fourth phase of its expanding plant in Thorne, Yorkshire following the company’s £20m expansion plan.

The Countess of Wessex was given a tour of the factory by manufacturing director Richard Tattersall before visiting Omega’s kitchen showroom where retail sales head James Bishton presented new products and talked about the latest industry trends.

Finally, she visited Omega’s new 76,000sq ft manufacturing and warehouse facility where she was invited by CEO Simon Barber, pictured left, to unveil a commemorative plaque in front of guests and employees.

“We were delighted to welcome Her Royal Highness, Countess of Wessex to Yorkshire today,” said chairman Sir Bob Murray. “She was incredibly gracious and took her time to tour the factory and showrooms as well as chatting with our employees. We were honoured that she could officially open Phase IV at the plant and unveiled a commemorative plaque.

“I’m particularly pleased that so many of our employees could enjoy celebrating this important milestone with us. We have a strong and committed workforce - 98% of which are local to Yorkshire, and they remain our greatest asset.”

Murray added: “In the last 12 months we have made significant investments in people, plant, processes and leading-edge technology to increase our capacity and capabilities. These investments will ensure we continue to exemplify the very best of British manufacturing and that the Omega name continues to epitomise inspired British design, craftsmanship and quality.”
