Award winning lingerie business Belle Lingerie has expanded its Cleckheaton headquarters.

The expansion project has seen Belle Lingerie claim an extra 3,700 sq ft of office and warehouse space at its base in Chain Bar Road, Cleckheaton. The development came as a result of the brand outgrowing its previous space at the warehouse unit it moved into five years ago.

The West-Yorkshire-based company is looking to take on more staff following the property change.

Belle Lingerie currently employs 22 people and has an annual turnover of more than £3.5 million.

The business has seen a 30 per cent year-on-year growth rate, making it one of the largest independent lingerie retailers in the UK.

Founder Janine Dutton, 41, hopes to further increase her staff numbers from 22 to between 25 and 30 over the next year and increase the business’ portfolio of brands.

The company already sells items from brands including Elomi, Gossard, Curvy Kate, Freya and Fantasie.

She told the Telegraph & Argus, Dutton said: “Expanding the unit is a real turning point for us as a business.

“Not only does it give us additional space for stock, it has enabled us to create better working spaces for staff and more efficient processes for fulfilling orders and dealing with returns.
