HRH The Countess of Wessex arrived at Omega HQ on Wednesday 6th March, looking as elegant as always, ready to be shown around our impressive plant.

The Countess was welcomed by dignitaries, our chairman, Sir Robert Murray and our CEO, Simon Barber.


The Factory

She was then taken into our state-of-the-art factory by our Manufacturing Director, Richard Tattersall.


The Countess took the time to talk to the individuals that make our kitchens...


As well as being keen to learn more about the manufacturing process.


The Showroom

From the factory, James Bishton, Head of Retail Sales, showed Her Royal Highness around our showroom.


Where she wanted to explore further!


Official Opening

After lunch, the Countess entered our Phase IV Warehouse, where she was welcomed by Omega PLC staff, to unveil the commemorative plaque and officially open our brand new warehouse, that makes up our £20 million investment last year.


The Posey

Faith Stead, daughter of our very own Samantha Stead, presented the Countess with a posy before she departed for Sunderland.
