One of the UK’s leading bespoke kitchen and furniture businesses is set to relocate to a £1m landmark showroom and workshop in Sheffield as part of a major expansion.

My Fathers Heart, which is preparing to celebrate its 20th anniversary, is relocating to a centre of design excellence on a prime site at Broadfield Business Park, with doors due to officially open in the autumn.

The state-of-the-art showroom has also been chosen to become the South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire flagship location for contemporary, market-leading German kitchen brand, SieMatic.

Relocation from the current workshops in Aizlewood Road, Abbeydale, will create 13 new jobs, demonstrating the company’s growth since Jonathan Coulthard first started the firm with just £500 in 1995.

He has worked with one of Sheffield’s most adventurous architect studios, award-winning Coda, to design the innovative showroom and workshop.

He said: “We are absolutely delighted with the design and location of our new showroom and workshop at Broadfield Business Park. Our Centre of Design and Excellence will provide a totally different and new experience for both our previous and prospective customers and visiting the centre will be incredibly enjoyable and a feast for the senses.

“The overall design of the building is incredibly striking, which reflects the unmatchable quality and unique design of My Fathers Heart craftsmanship, and boasts a number of environmentally-friendly features.”

The relocation has been backed by the Regional Growth Fund (RGF) with support from Hawsons Chartered Accountants and NatWest Bank.
