Buy Candy: Sigma3 luxury kitchen

For Brian Lakin, the founder of kitchen manufacturer and retailer Sigma3, 1998 holds bad memories.

That year, an electrical fault sparked a fire, which burnt down the company’s entire 70,000sq ft factory and all machinery.

?We had to rent a factory until we d rebuilt the old one but we managed to bounce back without losing a single customer order,” says Lakin.

Sigma3 turns more than £15m a year and employs more than 200 people, including Lakin’s two sons Richard and Edward. It’sthe largest manufacturer and supplier of kitchens and bedrooms in Wales, with £10 retail showrooms around the country.
