Knightsbridge Furniture has been selected as the preferred supplier for the Scottish NHS, a win that will see it provide contract furniture for hospitals across Scotland and the Isles.

Following a competitive process, the Bradford producer secured two tenders; one for hospital and healthcare furniture and another for the challenging environments sector.

The Scottish NHS tender covers all 14 health boards across Scotland and the Isles and will see the company provide 205 Scottish hospitals, community hospitals and healthcare facilities with furniture.

“It was a highly competitive selection process,” said md Alan Towns, who leads the management team that completed a buyout of the circa £9m business earlier this year. He added that it continues a working partnership which has lasted more than 60 years.
