UBCUK has welcomed a team from Southampton-based home furnishing brand, Mmilo Modern Furniture, to its offices at Enterprise House overlooking Ocean Village Marina.
Mmilo Modern Furniture is a nationwide supplier of high-quality contemporary furniture headquartered in Southampton. General Manager, Ryan Parry, toured Enterprise House last month and is now “delighted” to be settling into life at Ocean Village.
“The team and I are settling in very well to the new location and office. It makes a change not to be looking at the football stadium down at our main headquarters.
“Our favourite thing about the location is how close it is to the water, and for us to be able to sit outside and view all the lovely boats and surrounding area.”
Ryan is also the lucky first winner of UBCUK’s special promotion, which offers everyone who tours a UBC office the chance to win an iPad.
While the waterside views are certainly pleasant, it wasn’t the only reason Ryan and the Mmilo team chose Enterprise House.
“Our main reason was the building and interior - it’s very fancy and kept very clean, and the location works really well for us being only 5 minutes’ drive from our current headquarters. Also the price per space is very reasonable compared to other shared office space in the local area.
“We also chose UBCUK for the other little features they offer, like the kitchen facilities to make your tea and breakfast in the morning - very import for myself as a non-morning person. Also the free parking, as parking in the city can be expensive and we are pleased to be offered these spaces at Enterprise House.”
Founded in 2012, Mmilo provides high-quality contemporary furniture for the home and business, including chairs, tables, TV units and side tables.
2019 started particularly well for the team as they attended a furniture show in Birmingham in January, which according to Ryan, was their busiest trade show ever and produced the highest sales at the stand for 3 years. In addition, so far this year Mmilo has launched a new website combining retail and wholesale; introduced a number of new products; and launched a new service to source specific furniture products requested by clients.
“As we continue to grow and see new success, we continue to grow our team, and we are expanding to new locations and employing new staff for various teams, including purchasing, sales, operations and customer service.”
Off the back of this success and with a new office to accommodate their growing team, Mmilo stands in great stead for the rest of the year.
