Spanning 27,000 square feet and featuring full-size show houses, the Express bi-folding doors showroom The Home Space is one of the largest of its kind in Europe. To mark the occasion, a grand opening weekend will be held from 16 to 17 September, with exclusive discounts for attendees.

Two years in the making, the £3.5m manufacturing facility and showroom investment is the latest phase in growth for Express. Focusing on the importance of seeing products in-person, Express set about planning the premises in 2014, which will showcase all of the company’s products from windows and bi-folding doors to full-sized homes.

Steve Bromberg, general manager of Express, said: “The glazing market is growing a rapid rate, which means regular new customisable options. We wanted to create a destination for everybody, from homeowners and developers to architects and specifiers, to discover products in a familiar and realistic setting, with advice on hand whenever it’s needed regardless of project size.”

With investment coming in at just under £3.5m for the new site, £2m of which was spent developing the showroom, the project near White Rose Shopping Centre in Leeds has brought more than 100 jobs to the area. The new showroom will be officially opening to the public on 17 September with an exclusive discount reportedly available for visitors.
