Kitchen solutions specialist Potter Cowan has opened a new showroom in Belfast in a six-figure investment supported by the company’s trusted supply partners.

The interactive 3,000 sq ft working trade showroom at Potter Cowan’s head office in Duncrue Crescent features the latest on trend appliances, sinks and taps, worksurfaces, lighting and clever storage solutions.

The business, founded 75 years ago, has also invested in a comprehensive brand refresh on its buildings, fleet, uniforms, marketing and website.

Potter Cowan has a team of 50 staff working across their contracts and distribution divisions at branches in Belfast, Dublin and Cork, and a client base across the UK and Ireland.

Its contracts division has installed kitchens for local and national developers of large residential projects for over 20 years, building an excellent reputation in both London and Northern Ireland, where it counts many of the region’s largest developers, including Ballymore, Lagan Homes and Lotus Homes among its clients.

The company’s distribution division supplies a wide range of products including kitchens and appliances, sinks and taps, work surfaces and accessories to trade customers, sourced internationally from renowned kitchen manufacturers such as Formica, Caple, Minerva, and Sycamore.

Potter Cowan’s managing director Paul Lupari, who joined the business earlier this year, said: “This investment demonstrates our commitment to driving innovation and delivering exceptional value to our clients.

“Our goal is to provide an enhanced, interactive experience that showcases the latest industry trends and cutting-edge products, reinforcing our dedication to meeting the evolving needs of our customers.”

The Potter Cowan business was acquired in 2022 for an undisclosed sum by Errigal Group, a market leading construction company with specialist expertise in partition systems, external façade, interior fitout, ceilings and bespoke solutions

Errigal’s co-owners Cormac McCloskey and Damien Treanor emphasised the mutual benefits of the acquisition, highlighting the strengthened relationship and enhanced offerings for their clients.

Cormac said: “Our success is based on building strong and trusted relationships with clients and continually enhancing our offering to give them the best experience.

“Potter Cowan is a high-quality, well respected family business with great customers, and we believe that refreshing its brand and building this new showroom will position the business for further growth.”
