Blackburn-based cabinet furniture supplier Heritage Furniture has appointed two new sales agents ahead of the unveiling of its new brand identity at next year's January Furniture Show.

Stephen Pates, who joined the company in March, has been tasked with covering East Anglia and North London. He says: “I'm looking forward to establishing continued growth and brand awareness with existing and new product launches planned for the coming year, with retailers old and new, at this exciting time in Heritage’s continued development.”

Karen Rowley joins to cover Wales and the Borders. Karen, through her Furniturebox sales agency, has committed to developing the Heritage brand and portfolio, and says: "With the positive response from retailers throughout the area to Earlswood Oak – the first of the new phase of Heritage’s planned new product offer – I really look forward to the January Furniture Show, where their inspired new ranges will be on show for the first time.

"It’s great to be involved with a company that is not only committed to delivering great value and service but also distinctive, stylish and individual products."

Heritage Furniture MD Saeed Mohmed adds: "We aim to start next year with a bang. By the time the 2016 January Furniture Show comes around, all our hard work over the course of this year – new designs, pricing and branding – will come to fruition."
