Rearo Laminates has agreed a five-year lease extension on its Rosyth premises as it powers through a period of growth
Rearo Laminates Ltd, the Scottish manufacturer of bathroom and kitchen wall panels, worktops and flooring, has agreed a five-year lease extension with landlord C&W Assets Ltd on its Rosyth premises.
Rearo has seven customer branches across the UK, as well a 60,000 sq ft manufacturing facility in Glasgow. The company has been at its current Rosyth site, an approx. 5,000 sq ft showroom and trade counter on Primrose Lane in Dunfermline Business Park, for 10 years and has now agreed to extend this by a further five years to autumn 2022.
The company is going through a period of growth, with building work set to begin next month on expansion of its Glasgow premises. Rearo currently has around 100 employees, with six of the team based at its Rosyth branch.
Graham Mercer, Managing Director of Rearo, said: “As a family business with our roots in the area, we’re pleased to be renewing our commitment to Rosyth and to Fife with this long term lease extension. Rearo originated in Shetland but my father is from Rosyth, and Dunfermline was where my uncle Jim Smart opened our first UK mainland branch in the 1980s. We have had a presence in the area ever since, and it was in Dunfermline that we first started selling worktops and laminate wall panels, which ultimately led us to opening our manufacturing plant in Glasgow in 1991.
“Not many people know that the company name comes from an amalgamation of my mother’s hometown of Reawick in Shetland and Rosyth, my father’s hometown.”
Jane Oliver of C. &W. Assets Limited said: “We are very pleased that long-standing tenant Rearo has renewed its lease at Dunfermline Business Park. Rearo’s commitment is affirmation of the business park’s excellent, easily-accessible location in close proximity to the A823 dual carriageway to Dunfermline, and the M90.”
