Pop-Up Furniture Factory moves to Filwood Green Business Park

The Eagle House Pop Up Furniture Factory has now moved to the newly-opened Filwood Green Business Park – after making hundreds of pieces of furniture for the building.

The Business Park was officially opened by Bristol Mayor George Ferguson to enthusiastic crowds last week – and will provide a new home for environmental businesses across the city. Mr Ferguson said the new building – designed help the economic regeneration of South Bristol – was s “a triumph for the local area and a triumph for local people.”

The Pop Up Furniture Factory has been providing employment and skills training in the area for the past six months and is run by KWMC and local social enterprise re:work.

Our Business Manager Justin Ricks said: “It was great to see the success of the Eagle House Pop Up Furniture Factory, which meant that we delivered the furniture for the opening of the Green Business Park. We produced 500 pieces over the six month period for the Park. We have now moved into Unit 25 and are taking new orders for furniture.”
