Team effort results in great start to the year

The new 2018 caravan season may still be in its infancy, but we’re thrilled to be on track for one of our best-ever starts to the year.

With our order book already full for the first quarter – and no signs of a slowdown, the team here at our headquarters in Hull are almost working to maximum capacity.

To date, we have taken a wide range of orders from our regular European customers – including Rodeo Caravans and Caravan Centrum in Belgium, the Loisirs family from Bénouville in France and Anita Weering in Holland.

With the UK holiday park season set to officially start at the end of March, we have also manufactured new models on behalf of Bridlington Caravans and several other independent park owners.

Having enjoyed a buoyant beginning to the year, Arronbrook director Paul Coombs believes team work has been the driving force behind it.

He said: “We’re obviously delighted to have enjoyed a very positive opening few months of 2018 because it shows that our old and new customers have great confidence in us and our products.

“Significantly, we haven’t yet seen the fall off in orders that we sometimes experience at this time of year – and we seem to have maintained a steady order book. We believe that’s because the quality of our luxury bespoke holiday homes speaks for itself.

“However, it’s important to remember that the success we’ve experienced so far would not be possible without the hard work of all our staff. Everyone from the draughtsmen to our highly-skilled fitters have pulled together and played a major part as a team.”

Although exports continue to remain strong, a wide range of bespoke holiday homes are also now being produced on behalf of several UK customers. Once the weather warms up and the summer season gets in full swing, Paul is confident that orders will continue to be taken for the latter part of the year.

He added: “We’re always looking for new opportunities and we think there is the potential to form new partnerships with a few more independent UK holiday parks as the year progresses – particularly when show season gets underway from July to September.

“If we can maintain this kind of order level, it looks like 2018 could be an excellent year for us - and will further enhance our reputation as one of the UK’s best bespoke caravan manufacturers.”
