Formed in 1978, Yorkshire-based Rixonway Kitchens has over 30 years’ experience in supplying kitchens to affordable housing and the public sector and is the only UK kitchen manufacturer dedicated to community regeneration.
Rixonway manufactures in excess of 12,000 rigid units per week and employs 400 people at its 170,000 sq ft state-of-the-art manufacturing head quarters in Yorkshire including 40 dedicated designers who operate nationally.
Over the past ten years, through a range of innovations and improved internal processes, Rixonway has reduced lead times, resulting in an ‘on time in full’ delivery record of 98%. Since 2002 Rixonway has invested in a complete overhaul of its production facility and created a secure on-line portal for both clients and contractors to access a range of business information.
The company is focused on developing a full understanding of individual customer needs. Rixonway designers and project managers provide tenants with a full ‘retail experience’, visiting each home to provide on-site individual property CAD design planning.
Investing in people is high on Rixonway’s agenda as it believes better quality people provide better quality service. Rixonway is committed to combating worklessness and is partnered with a number of public and private sector agencies to provide jobs and opportunities. Rixonway is dedicated to building thriving communities, working on a range of grass roots projects tackling social problems.
To meet the current environmental challenges, Rixonway has developed a variety of tools, policies and strategies to reduce its environmental impact. The company salvages 100% of the wood waste from its production process and the raw material is then utilised to create biomass fuel. Additionally the timber used in the manufacturing process is accredited by the Forest Stewardship Council accreditation (FSC). Rixonway has developed a tailor made recycling service involving both local and national partners and fulfilling all kitchen recycling requirements in terms of method and frequency of collection.
The CO² emissions that derive from Rixonway’s company vehicle fleet are also measured and offset. All these initiatives form part of the environmental performance targets and commitments set by Rixonway which have been ISO14001 accredited.
