Interior Contracts snaps up Lanzet

Not for the first time does that old saying about an ill-wind came true with the news that Interior Contracts is now offering customers an additional range of built-in kitchens following its buy-out of Lanzet UK Limited.

Blackburn-based Interior Contracts has bought Reading firm Lanzet, after the company was placed into administration last month due to the challenging trading conditions of the economic downturn.

The existing Lanzet premises in Woodley, Reading, will be retained for the immediate future, until new premises are found in the same area as the new owner's head office.

Meanwhile, Interior Contracts, working in partnership with its manufacturing partners Betta Living, promises to continue the great work carried out by Lanzet throughout its long history.

At the end of 2008, Interior Contracts was bought out by managing director Barry Casement, who ran the company for seven years prior to the buy-out. The company specialises in supplying kitchens to architects, property developers and builders.

Speaking about the acquisition of Lanzet, Casement said: "Lanzet has built up an excellent reputation over a 28-year period, and it's one we're excited to maintain and, hopefully, enhance.

"Interior Contracts will continue to offer the same exceptional lead times, enhanced product offers and dedicated field management and customers services previously provided by Lanzet."
