European visit key to ongoing export success

EUROPEAN exports continue to play a key role in our business – and we’re delighted to have just returned from a very positive fact-finding visit two of our loyal Belgian customers.

With the 2018 manufacturing season now well underway and our order book full for the next quarter, the overseas trip was designed to strengthen our ongoing relationship with Rodeo Caravans and Caravan Centrum.

Belgians may be famous for their love of beer and chocolate, but they are also massive caravan lovers – and these suppliers are two of the best in the business.

Rodeo Caravans, which is owned and run by Hans Staelens, has a sizeable indoor showroom where customers can visit and view all the luxury holiday homes that are for sale all year round.

A short drive away and also located in northern Belgium, Caravan Centrum is operated and run by brothers-in-law Jacques & Philippe who are always keen to find out about the latest developments in the caravan industry.

Directors Steve Park and Paul Coombs, who both took part in the whistle-stop two-day tour, were delighted by the warm welcome they received and were pleased to hear the views of two much-valued customers.

“Going to see our clients is always a pleasure because it allows us to find out how things are going, learn what they want and discover how we can help them with their future plans.

“This particular visit to Belgium was very useful as it provided us with some great feedback and let us discuss future sales strategies. The fact the weather was warm and our two hosts were extremely welcoming, as they always are, made the trip even better.

“We’re really pleased we went and we’re looking forward to working with Rodeo and Centrum over the next 12 months and in the long term too.”
