Imperial Bathrooms has new team at the top

September 2020

Imperial Bathrooms, specialist manufacturers of classic and contemporary British-made bathroom solutions, has a new management team charged with executing strategic realignment and operational change in the company.

Imperial Bathrooms has promoted James Stevenson, former Export Director, to Joint Managing Director: a key role that he shares with newly appointed associate, John Kitchiner.
“I am delighted to come together with John in the new role of Managing Director, as we share the same brand values and vision to shape the company’s future in pursuit of continued growth,” says Stevenson.  

“Crucially, we want to work together to improve productivity, driving our British-made bathroom products with extremely high pedigree to the UK homeowner in a proactive manner.”

Imperial Bathrooms appointed John Kitchiner as Joint Managing Director in July.  He brings over 30 years of operations management experience to the company. John explains, “I am thrilled to be joining Imperial Bathrooms for many reasons, none less so than the company is an industry institution with formidable reputation. My aim is to direct and oversee the predicted growth that lies ahead, as I feel certain that the fallout from COVID-19 combined with Brexit at the end of the year, will offer huge potential for true British manufacturers like Imperial Bathrooms that are autonomous and have capacity for a resurgence in business,” comments Kitchiner.

James Stevenson, fellow Managing Director says, “The recent organisational restructure is a great example of our continued development and renewed vision, which focuses on nurturing our rich brand history founded on quality product design, so we can engage the next generation of Imperial customers.”

July 2020 saw Lousada Plc become the new owners of Imperial Bathrooms. This is a new beginning for the company, with advancing its British manufacturing facilities and respective Ceramic and Wood Divisions.

Simon Lousada, Owner of Imperial Bathrooms says “I am pleased to be able to affect change and refocus the company’s efforts on progressive design and being a leading influence within the UK bathroom industry.  We also want to strengthen our share in exports, identifying new revenue streams on both a national and international level. It is important for Imperial Bathrooms to remain true to its British ownership and company values, which I hope, will reinforce our presence as a must-have bathroom designer and manufacturer.”
