Margaret Reilly, CTR Manufacturing Ltd. and Grand Designs Kitchens and Bedrooms.

CTR Manufacturing was founded by Margaret in 2009, manufacturing and supplying kitchen and bedroom furniture to the trade.   In 2011, Margaret opened a second business, Grand Designs Kitchen & Bedrooms Showroom Ltd, which facilitated the showcasing of their custom designed kitchen and bedroom furniture.

In August 2015, a new factory showroom was purchased allowing for the integration of both businesses under one roof.  The company is growing and developing with 7 staff currently employed. Margaret is planning to employ an experienced sales person in the near future with a view to expanding into the North of Ireland.

Margaret started out as an apprentice cabinet maker in 1998, qualifying in 2002. Having worked in a number of sales and manufacturing companies, Margaret saw an opportunity to manufacture and supply bespoke kitchen and bedroom furniture to the trade, and set up CTR Manufacturing Ltd in 2009.

PLATO EBR congratulates Margaret on her recent success.
