Founded in 1984 by Managing Director Donald Macleod and his wife Ann. DM Design has grown over the years from a true family start up with the first base for business working out of the family garage to their state of the art manufacturing facility in Cumbernauld where kitchens and bedrooms are custom built to order.
In 1984, Mr Macleod was the only original employee, acting as a one man band and embodying true entrepreneurial spirit, he sold, purchased materials, manufactured and installed fitted bedrooms. Often working 7 days a week.
DM Design is pleased to celebrate 30 years in the home improvements industry in 2014.
After three months, it became apparent that a workshop was required in order to meet the growing demand for orders and if the business was to expand and develop. They opened their first workshop in Westfield Industrial Estate, where DM remain today, albeit in different premises. From this base, the business grew over the years which led to employing more staff, mainly in manufacturing, leaving Mr Macleod to focus on selling, installing and driving the business forward.
In 1985, after only 12 months of business DM Design attended and launched their products at The Ideal Home Exhibition in the Kelvin Hall, Glasgow. That same year saw the company start to design, build and install fitted kitchens and with this came the need for new premises to accommodate the office and sales staff who were now in place.
The Business was thriving and five years later it was decided the time was right for DM Design to move onto the project of designing, building and kitting out their own custom built factory and showroom. In 1993 the purpose build factory was completed and the company made a smooth transition into their new premises where we remain today.
Over the next few years DM Design continued to grow and branches opened throughout Scotland with showrooms in Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Kirkcaldy, Paisley and Uddingston. With such a success in Scotland the company opened up the marketplace in England and has never looked back.
DM Design’s latest endeavour is our purpose build Granite cutting facility, Built in 2011, DM Design are able to cut and manufacture granite & quartz custom made for each customer. By having this facility we are able to significantly reduce costs for the customers without jeopardising on the quality of the product.
Throughout all this Mr Macleod has striven to achieve the best standards in all aspects, from employee satisfaction to customer service and quality. Proof of this achievement can be seen in our reviews and loyalty can be seen by several employees who have been with the company for over 15 years with some from the very start.
To celebrate DM Design being 30 years in business Mr McLeod would like to show his appreciation by upgrading kitchen worktops to Granite or Quartz. This offer saves you money and gives you that extra special custom finish to your kitchen.
