After being involved in the retail aspect of the industry with Rose Kitchens for 20 years, Mike and Dolores Rose began building a manufacturing side to the business. They soon decided to place their focus solely on this and Lubina was created. Over 25 years it has expanded, outgrowing two factories, quadrupling its team and appointing a third Director; Robert Byford. In 2005, Mike and Dolores’s daughter, Emma Rose, officially joined the company taking the role as representative and later appointed as the company’s fourth Director.
As a company, Lubina strives to create and maintain quality products and service, which is constantly improving as it grows and as the team work closely together.
With over 45 years’ experience, this small family business continues to develop and pride itself on making a high quality product to supply to the trade, both to mid-upper market retail showrooms and local developers. With great importance placed on personal relationships with customers, suppliers and its team on site, Lubina aims to continue improving and moving forward, in order to accommodate the needs and expectations of all the important people involved in this process.
In 2008, Lubina embarked on the next part of their journey. Moving to a brand new building in a rapidly expanding area for commercial development, the 22,000 square foot warehouse enabled improved production by a more efficient layout and a larger area for storage. New offices created more space for the team, plus, areas for private meetings and a practical showroom facilitated better training for staff and customers.
The showroom comprises of 14 displays and over 150 sample doors covering handleless, lay-on, in-frame, timber, painted, gloss and matt options along with wirework, worktops, appliances, sinks and taps. Retailers and developers regularly use this facility, bringing their customers in to discuss their plans in a quiet space where they can look at all the options available.
With continuous and considerable investment in the team, machines and products, plus an ever-changing landscape in design, trends, fashion and functionality, there has never been a time with so many exciting challenges ahead where Lubina can look forward to the future development of the company.
