Justin Dubiel has been appointed as Elliotts’ kitchens and bathrooms manager. It comes as the firm unveils ambitious plans to double its turnover from this part of the business over the next few years.

While well known historically for its builders’ merchant branches across the county, Elliotts has a strong footing in sales of kitchens and bathrooms to the public and trade over the last 40 years.

Mr Dubiel has over 24 years of experience in the kitchen and bathroom industry, and previously worked as commercial director at Hardleys in Lymington, which was acquired by Elliotts in October last year.

In his new role, Mr Dubiel’s work will involve strengthening Elliotts’ offering of products at its four kitchen and bathroom showrooms across Hampshire, and making the process of buying even easier for customers.

Mr Dubiel said: “My background at Hardleys was very much focused on the boutique side of kitchen and bathrooms, so I’m looking forward to bringing that different slant to customers of Elliotts. The union of Hardleys and Elliotts means that customers now have the full spectrum of ranges – including well-known brands and luxury products.”
