Family run Coachman Caravans of Hull has reopened its factory and returned to production following a temporary closure due to Covid-19. Staff returned to work on Thursday 4 June.
The high-end caravan manufacturer is producing pre-Covid-19 levels of production from the get-go.
Despite closures of manufacturers and dealerships across the industry, the UK staycation is expected to boom in the coming months, with Coachman Caravans already seeing the uptake. Elliot Hibbs, Managing Director, commented: “Our order book is full until the end of the year and we had less than 2% of orders cancelled during lockdown, many of which have now been replaced.”
Throughout the closure, many of Coachman’s 35 dealerships across the UK have continued to retail through online platforms and by using virtual tours. The company has followed all government guidelines in order to restart production, with the inclusion of thermal imaging cameras at entrances to the site, PPE for all staff members and the allowance of 2m social distancing throughout the premises.
