Sterling Furniture Group celebrates 50th year with £83.7 million turnover

Sterling Furniture Group Reports £28 Million Turnover Increase and £4 Million Drop in Pre-Tax Profits for 18-Month Period

The Scottish home furnishing specialist, Sterling Furniture Group, has recently reported a significant increase in turnover but a drop in pre-tax profits for the 18-month period up to August 2023. This news comes amidst a challenging period for the business, with various factors impacting its financial performance.

The company attributes the decrease in profits to reduced consumer confidence post-pandemic, the cost-of-living crisis, geopolitical instability, and supply chain disruptions. Despite these challenges, Sterling Furniture Group remains optimistic about the future and has taken decisive action under new leadership to address the issues affecting its financial performance.

John Pattison, the new CEO appointed in August 2023, has spearheaded a new direction for the business. Under his leadership, the company has made significant changes, including appointing key senior personnel, securing new funding from Royal Bank of Scotland, and planning for ambitious growth in the years ahead.

One of the key initiatives under Mr. Pattison’s leadership is the rebranding of the Sterling Home marque and the opening of new stores across the group. The company is also focused on ‘right-sizing’ its cost base and ensuring sustainable profitability in the future.

The appointment of four new directors to the leadership team, including a chief financial officer, IT director, people director, and commercial director, demonstrates Sterling Furniture Group’s commitment to driving growth and innovation in the industry.

As the company celebrates its 50th anniversary, it looks forward to the next 50 years with optimism and confidence. With a clear vision for growth, a refreshed leadership team, and exciting new store plans on the horizon, Sterling Furniture Group is poised for success in the years to come.
