Celebrations took place recently to mark Uform’s 30th year in business with a glittering evening of laughter, music and a trip down memory lane.
Employees from both Uform and its sister company, Andoras Ltd gathered in the Dunadry Hotel & Gardens and were treated to dinner, a host of 30th themed fun games and lots of prizes.
The family-founded company has been at the leading edge of product innovation in the kitchen industry since it was founded in 1993 by brothers Eamon and Paul Donnelly along with their late father Eddie. The anniversary comes as the company announced their diversification into the bedroom industry with door ranges specifically catered to freestanding and fitted furniture options.
Commenting on the 30 years, co-founder and Non-Executive Director Eamon Donnelly says, ‘When Uform was established three decades ago as Oakwood Door Designs, we had a clear vision on where we wanted to take the business and were confident that we could lead the industry in terms of product design and service. With passion, determination, a skilled team of people and a thorough understanding of our customers’ needs, we have grown significantly in recent years and are immensely proud of our achievements’.
Today, the Uform Group now employs a combined workforce of over 400 people across both Uform and Andoras, it’s Donegal based sister company that specialises in premium made to order furniture through its luxury brand, Novelle.
