A KITCHENS manufacturer has opened a northern office in Scotland.

Grange Interiors, based in North Shields, Tyneside, employs more than 90 staff at its manufacturing site and Tynemouth showroom.

The company has been established for 30 years. The new office is near Glasgow.

Managing director David Steven said: "Our expansion programme has been a gradual, yet very strategic process, which has enabled us to accommodate an ever-increasing contracts portfolio.

"We are continuing to work closely with some of the country's leading property developers, local authorities and architects, and with our Scottish operation now open, I am confident of driving the company forward to greater success in future."
