Conservatory Outlet Named as One of Wakefield’s Leading Businesses

At a glitzy ceremony held at Tileyard North, Conservatory Outlet was recognised as one of Wakefield’s best businesses.

Over 150 business leaders and representatives, academics and key local figures were in attendance as the Wakefield Top 100, the list of the city’s top companies, was unveiled.

Founded by Wakefield Council, the University of Huddersfield and the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, the Wakefield Top 100 celebrates the achievements of the region’s businesses. To rank, companies were subjected to an external audit that measured turnover, profit, employee numbers and growth.

Representing Conservatory Outlet at the unveiling ceremony was Karen Starkey, the company’s Head of HR.

“Being named in the Wakefield Top 100 only strengthens the Conservatory Outlet name in the region and beyond. This achievement showcases how successful the business is and that success has only been possible thanks to our talented and passionate workforce, many of whom call Wakefield home.”

Karen concludes: We’re incredibly proud to fly the flag for the city and be listed alongside other forward-thinking and thriving companies.”

Conservatory Outlet’s inclusion comes as no surprise. In the past year alone, the manufacturer of windows, doors and new living spaces has expanded its exclusive product range, increased its staff count, achieved Investors in People status, and been consistently recognised as one of the region’s leading employers.

Additionally, the company has successfully supported its Network of Premium Retailers with further investment, marketing initiatives and sales training, leading to sales across the Network grow by nearly 20%.

Mick Giscombe, Managing Director at Conservatory Outlet, begins: “I’m delighted that Conservatory Outlet is recognised as one of Wakefield’s leading businesses.

“Our team works incredibly hard to ensure that we deliver an unrivalled service for our customers, backed by our exclusive products that are manufactured right here in the heart of Wakefield.

“Whereas other companies in our sector have struggled, we’ve strived and several of our retail partners are performing at an exceptional level, breaking sales records and growing year-on-year.”
