We’re a company shrouded in history and heritage. We are one of Irelands largest kitchen carcass manufacturers, established in 1980 we are trusted by customers in Ireland / UK and Europe to supply their dream kitchen.
In February 1981 William Oliver laid the foundations for an agricultural type building at Exorna Lane, Castlerock to manufacture kitchen units for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive which at the time were building several thousand homes annually in Northern Ireland.
Machinery was purchased, installed and the first kitchens delivered in May 1981 to a customer in Newry. At the time the business had five employees.
During the 1980’s extensions were continually added to the buildings at Exorna Lane. Machinery was constantly updated, employees increased to thirty and a retail showroom was opened in Coleraine.
Ten Years On
By 1991, ten years since the start of Exorna, despite the factory space in Castlerock having increased to 20,000 sq. feet, the business need more room. The decision was taken to purchase 40,000 sq. feet of the vacant Sperrin Textiles Factory at Hillman’s Way, Coleraine.
Continuing To Grow
Since then the business has continued to expand and as well as growth in turnover, we have installed machinery to manufacture doors in house, purchased the further 60,000 sq. feet of the Sperrin site and set up a sister company to fabricate and install stone worktops.
Still A Family Run Business
The business is still a family business retaining many of its original customers with some staff part of this story for over thiry years and we are looking forward to the next forty years and what the future holds for Exorna Kitchens & Bedrooms.
