As I write this, there are only 25 (ish) working days until Christmas and I don’t know where the year has gone and there is still so much to do before the end of 2014!

I am pleased to announce that the export side of the business has continued to make great strides this year and after four years of targeting the USA as a priority, it finally feels like everything has come together in 2014 and we are inundated with enquiries which is exactly how we like it.

We are celebrating one of our most exciting US project wins to date, the 5-star boutique hotel 5 Beekman which is set to open towards the end of 2015. Other USA project highlights include New York Hilton Midtown, HGI Waikiki, Hilton Barbados, Embassy Suites Louisville, InterContinental Doral Hotel Miami, Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, Atton Hotel Miami, The Lodge at Vail Colorado to name a few of the projects we are working on currently or have in the pipeline.

As you know, in addition to the great work and support Dee and the team at Head Office deliver we have a team of dedicated USA agents located across the US and we are pleased to announce that we have recently appointed two new reps as part of the expansion of our USA network to continue to strengthen the Chelsom brand and better service our clients so we can be on hand to attend site visits or meet with designers so please get in touch if we can be of assistance. We have also furthered our expertise in UL approval and have been working hard to streamline the systems so certification can take place in both our UK and Chinese factories.

That’s about it from me but to say that our successes in the USA over  recent months have helped to ensure that we are ending the year on a high and heading in to 2015 with a record high order book thanks to a fantastic new collection, website and all the efforts of the Chelsom team.

Enjoy the impending festivities and may 2015 bring you every success and happiness.

Best wishes,
