It’s exciting times for the Omar Group, not only is Omar Park & Leisure Homes in the midst of celebrating their 50th Anniversary year, the group has also expanded production capability with a new facility in Hull.
One of the biggest challenges Omar Group have faced over the past year has been the ability to supply the ever-increasing demand for luxury lodges and park homes from the groups brands, Omar Park & Leisure Homes and Wessex Unique Lodges & Park Homes.
As part of a long-term strategic plan to address this demand, the group created a new production facility in Hull earlier this year and on Friday 15th May, the first two models, an Omar Westfield luxury lodge and an Omar Regency park home left the facility.
Now fully up and running, the Hull production facility is capable of producing up to eight homes a week, that’s around 400 luxury lodges or park homes over the course of a year!
It’s not just good news for company growth though; the production facility has also been fantastic for Hull’s local economy. Production quantities at the facility will build up over the course of the year and it is expected that at least 50 staff will be employed in Hull by the end of the summer, and this is in addition to the 269 that are currently based at the company’s headquarters in Brandon!
Growth plans don’t stop there though, Omar Group is currently out to tender for a 40,000 sq ft extension to their main Brandon facility which should come on-line in 2016. This ambitious expansion plan will enable Omar to double the amount and product it supplies within three years meaning that even more customers can enjoy one of the company’s beautiful park homes or stunning luxury lodges.
Omar Group Chief Executive, Dean Westmoreland commented: “We’ve got a fantastic team here at Omar. Everyone shares in our vision to be the very best and to delight our customers and it’s this care and dedication that has been fundamental to our growth. It’s exiting times for us here and we look forward to seeing our luxury lodges and park homes at even more locations up and down the country.”
