Ashley Ann Ltd
Founded in 1986, Ashley Ann is now in its 30th year of trading and is a family-owned-and-run company started by Stephen and Ellen Bremner, and named after their daughter, Ashley. Stephen and Ellen’s sons, Gavin and Scott, are now in the senior management team, ensuring that Ashley Ann will continue to be run in the same caring way it always has been.
The business has grown substantially over the last 30 years, and the company now have 160 employees including those at their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Wick, Caithness, in the far north of Scotland.
From humble beginnings in a small unit in Thurso nearly thirty years ago, Ashley Ann now manufacture around 80 kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms per week, with these being supplied through eight of their own retail showrooms in Scotland, and many independent retailers spread right across the UK.
The scale of growth and advances in manufacturing technology have resulted in many changes to the company over the 30 years, but the family-led values which were at heart from the earliest days still hold true today.
