Rutherglen Reformer - - Business - Kenny Smith

A Cam­bus­lang business has boosted its work­force after mov­ing premises to Ruther­glen.

Ceil­ing2Floor, and its as­so­ci­ated business Wet­rooms, were pre­vi­ously based in the Somervell in­dus­trial es­tate in Cam­bus­lang, but ear­lier this year bought over the old derelict eye­sore Nam­bar­rie Tea dis­tri­bu­tion build­ing.

Since then, man­ag­ing direc­tors Brian and Bill Crom­bie have spent over £1 mil­lion de­vel­op­ing the new of­fice, show­room and ware­house, with the firm re­cently mov­ing into their new home.

Se­nior op­er­a­tions man­ager Anne McMail said: “Work started in Fe­bru­ary, and the build­ing was fall­ing apart - there were trees grow­ing out of the floor, and the build­ing was in very poor con­di­tion as it had lain empty for almost nine years.

“We had gone as far as we could in our old of­fices - we needed th­ese new premises to ex­pand.

“We’ve moved out of Somervell Street where we had been for 10 years, and it’s def­i­nitely been the right move for us.

“We have em­ployed eight new mem­bers of the work­force in the last month, and we are still re­cruit­ing. We now em­ploy a to­tal of 37 em­ploy­ees plus two direc­tors.
