Wellhouse Leisure is investing over £125,000 in new equipment and recruiting 10 extra staff for its factory in Huddersfield to meet the strong demand for its new Ford Terrier campervan after its successful launch last October. This investment will enable Wellhouse to increase production to 250 vehicles a year, worth over £10.5 million, making the Ford Terrier one of the best-selling campervans in the UK and Wellhouse Leisure the biggest campervan manufacturer in the UK.
In addition, Wellhouse Leisure has already recruited 16 Ford retailers from across the UK to sell the Terrier, which is the first UK campervan conversion based on the new Ford Transit Custom. This provides Wellhouse with one of the most comprehensive nationwide networks of agents, with more Ford retailers expected to join soon, making it easy for everyone to see the new Ford Terrier as demonstrators will soon be available in showrooms in the south east and west, the midlands, Wales, northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Commenting on this success, David Elliott, managing director of Wellhouse Leisure said: “It has been an amazingly positive year for us. We have broken all our sales forecasts and records in 2012 and feel really positive about the next 12 months, which is why we’ve invested in improvements in our factory and already taken on six new people to meet the demand for this great campervan.”
