Newcastle-based furniture manufacturer Godfrey Syrett has announced it has recently completed a seven-figure contract for the NHS.

Godfrey Syrett was appointed to manufacture a range of bespoke furniture to meet the NHS’ exact requirements for the Royal Victoria Infirmary’s new Clinical Resource Centre in Newcastle, which will accommodate over 800 key professional staff across eight storeys.

Despite the volume of furniture, which included over 1,200 chairs, over 700 work stations and just under 900 storage units, Godfrey Syrett completed the installation in just five weeks.

Tim Pavier, area sales manager, said: “After receiving notification of an installation deadline we acted very quickly to deliver the furniture within the given timescales and were delighted to complete the project four weeks early.

“The process was helped by the fact that we had recently moved into our new £2m distribution hub in Durham which has an 8-strong delivery vehicle fleet and meant we were able to fulfil the delivery requirements for this project even at short notice.”

David Hall, group sales director, added: “The NHS is where it all started for Godfrey Syrett and we are delighted that we are still delivering furniture solutions to them nearly 70 years later.”
