The GM Development Project
Change is the law of life.
And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
John F. Kennedy
GM Fitted Furniture Limited (GM), creators of fitted furniture since 1978 and Baron Mercer Limited (BM), manufacturers of contract wooden, upholstered furniture for offices, schools and churches are part of the Baron Mercer Group. Both companies are based in Accrington and during 2018, the ongoing development project will see BM relocate their factory to a site adjoining the GM premises in Altham West, Accrington.
This industry is driven by change and innovation, so we are constantly learning and improving, making every day a school day. Our own development initiative has already changed the GM business and its dynamics both inside and out, but we still have much to do. The Baron Mercer Group is re-investing in every area of its operations; from buildings, technology and machinery to our people and their training.
The project has not been easy and battling with the old Gilbraith's Transport buildings has been a serious and ongoing challenge, so we are all looking forward to some coffee and cake in William's when the job is finally done; you're invited too!
