Norfolk Feather Company
Relocation to Snetterton, Norfolk
One of Diss’ oldest employers is closing its facility and relocating 47 staff to brand new Headquarters in Snetterton. After 50 years in the town, the Norfolk Feather Company, who provide quality feather and hollowfibre products to homes across the UK, will relocate all of its operations to Snetterton from September this year.
The Diss factory site has been sold to Michael Howard Homes who have been specialising in the strategic planning, property development and construction of individual properties of style and distinction for over 30 years.
Managing Director of the Norfolk Feather Company, Peter Crellen said: "whilst we are sorry to be leaving Diss after so many years of being synonymous with the town. The long term vision and strategy for the company has changed and that is to streamline manufacturing to meet the demand for high-quality, sustainable textile products. Our new “state of the art” building will provide better working conditions for all staff, including more space, a modern factory facility, larger warehousing, offices and a showroom. The new facility is an exciting prospect for Norfolk Feather, who with the support of its staff, are looking forward to the transition".
