2012 is a very special year for Chelsom as it reaches another business milestone – 65 years trading in the worldwide furnishings industry. From retail roots in the north of England, the company has developed into the leading UK supplier of decorative contract lighting to the world’s hotel and hospitality industry. Said Managing Director Robert Chelsom, “I am very proud of the business my parents started in 1947 and my son Will has now been in the business for the past five years.
“We moved from having one retail shop to supplying Harrods, Fortnum & Mason and other top name retailers. The Chelsom of today is completely contract-oriented, supplying lighting to the leading hotels and cruise ships of the world.
This milestone year has culminated in Chelsom attaining a sales presence across the globe with a strong network of agents in America, a permanent base in the Middle East, agents across Europe and a manned office in Hong Kong to deal with all Asian enquiries.”
