Worcestershire camping company, OLPRO, one of the UK’s few home-grown camping brands, bucked the trend for retail during 2018, increasing turnover by 20% on the previous year with profits increasing in parallel.
The company recently saw its 7th birthday, and now has a turnover of £1.4 million with plans for significant growth over the next two years.
Managing Director, Daniel Walton says:
‘The amount we invest in our company, in terms of training, staff well being and development is really paying off. We now have a strong, established team who work incredibly hard to grow the company. With a high level of economic uncertainty and consumers clearly concerned about rising costs, we’ve taken action to bring in more direct sales, and offer a number of attractive features for customers buying from us, such as 0% finance, click and collect, hassle free returns and free shipping on everything we do. We also invested heavily in design, creating a brand that really stands out, is great quality and affordable, central to our ethos’
For 2019, OLPRO are proud to be recruiting more apprentices to help develop training and employment in Worcestershire, and are also launching 25 new camping products into the market, all designed here in Little Witley.
