Revolutionising Salon Training Spaces: REM’s Legacy of Excellence and Creativity

For over two decades, REM has been at the forefront of providing salon furniture solutions for educational institutions across the UK and beyond. With a focus on colleges and academies specialising in hairdressing, barbering, and beauty treatments, REM has carved a niche as the go-to partner for creating dynamic and functional training environments.

Education Specialists: A Journey Through Time

For REM, the journey began over 20 years ago, marked by a commitment to excellence in salon furniture design and installation. Our collaboration with colleges throughout the UK and across Europe, including Belgium, Holland, Poland, and Denmark, has been a testament to our expertise and dedication.

Over the years, we have executed numerous projects ranging from small-scale replacements to large-scale transformations of entire college salon facilities. Whether it’s replacing backwashes, cutting stations, or designing multi-room training areas, our main focus has been meeting the unique needs of each institution.

We understand the importance of collaboration, working closely with facilities departments to navigate challenges such as space limitations and budget constraints. Our goal is to deliver solutions that not only meet but exceed expectations, every single time.

Bury College – Quality that Stands the Test of Time

One crucial aspect of any training facility is the quality and durability of the installation. At REM, we take pride in our craftsmanship, ensuring that every piece of furniture is built to last. A prime example of this commitment is our recent refurbishment of Bury College, Manchester.

Having initially refurbished the college back in 2004, we had the opportunity to revisit the facility in February 2024 for a full upgrade. The fact that thousands of students had utilised the facilities over the past two decades speaks volumes about the durability and reliability of REM furniture. The recent modernisation of Bury College’s salon training facility provided us with a unique opportunity to reflect on the journey from retro to contemporary.

“The equipment provided by REM enables students to be well-prepared for working in the Hair and Beauty industry. They are delighted with their new facilities.”Victoria Fell, Faculty Director and Strategic Lead

“We are delighted that we can now accommodate current and future generations of Bury College Hair and Beauty Students in state-of-the-art facilities with industry-standard equipment. REM were a pleasure to deal with, and the support and guidance they offered throughout the design and delivery stages of the project was excellent.”Michael Bromley, Head of Estates and Health & Safety
