The innovative Mira Flight shower tray range, which was launched in 2012, has reached the significant two millionth milestone, responding to growing demand. The celebration event was held on 17th October at the Melton site. The day was marked with local media and dignitaries including The Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull, Peter Allen, and the Chairman of East Riding Council, Margaret Chadwick, to witness the landmark tray being produced.
Jon Ramsdale, New Product Development Director at Mira Showers, commented: “This milestone for the Mira Flight shower tray range is a testament to both our associates’ hard work and a high-quality product. It’s always exciting to watch a product like this grow from strength to strength in such a short period of time.”
Made from durable, acrylic-capped resin stone, the Mira Flight shower tray is scratch and chip resistant, and features BioCote® technology to reduce bacteria and mould growth by up to 99.9%. Last May, the Mira Flight Safe tray received the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category, for its market-leading anti-slip surface – just another way that this innovative range has gone from strength to strength.
The impressive progress for the Mira Flight shower tray comes six years after a £6m investment in relocating to the state-of-the-art facility in Hull, which produces shower trays, baths and enclosures.
Equipped with the latest technologies, the move has enabled us to accommodate extra demand for the Mira Flight shower trays through increased production capabilities.
From a sustainability perspective, waste was cut by 300 tonnes per year and the reduction of heavy goods traffic through Hull was cut by 35,000 miles per year, as a result of this move.
The Mira Flight shower tray range is available in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit all bathrooms and styles and is supported with a 10-year guarantee.
