ENKI Bathrooms and Wetrooms have made a splash by opening a new showroom at its headquarters in Ashton.
The business, based at Alphamet Trading Estate, Boodle Street, continues to expand having earlier this year move from Mottram Road, Stalybridge, to its new base not far from Ashton rail station which is twice the size.
The move to the former premises of Travis Perkins builders’ merchants has enabled them to create an impressive showroom and the company takes pride in its exclusive bathroom and tile ranges, including an extensive selection from Vitra bathrooms.
Enki Bathrooms and Wetrooms, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary in January, was set up by Luke Sugden and Wayne Ratcliffe.
They had been fitters working for various companies before deciding to start their own business and Wayne says their slogan is “we take care of everything”.
“There are a lot of companies selling bathrooms and then you have to find a fitter, but we do everything,” he explained.
When it comes to home improvements, Luke and Wayne can offer far more than bathrooms and wetrooms that fully fitted usually cost between £6,000 and £15,000.
Their construction firm LCS Building Services is also based at its Alphamet Trading Estate and specialises in extensions, some so vast they cost up to £300,000. They also do new builds and can supply and fit bathrooms.
The business employs 10 full-time staff and also has sub-contractors like electricians, roofers and plasterers. They have five vans on the road.
Enki Bathrooms and Wetrooms also shares its premises with Alphamet, a company that produces bi-folding aluminium doors and windows.
“We use their exclusive range for our extensions as they manufacture hi-spec doors and windows on site,” explained Wayne who added the various businesses dovetail nicely together.
Wayne explained they are hidden away in Ashton whereas they were previously on the main road through Stalybridge.
“We had a High Street presence, but here we are not so visible so it is a case of letting the public know we are here,” he said.
