Leeds-based supplier, Harrison Bathrooms, has announced that sales grew by 18% in 2020 despite the impact of Covid-19 on the industry.
In a statement, the company said it was “fighting fit” and attributed its growth to continued investment in the business throughout the pandemic.
As well as implementing a new warehouse management system – to improve picking accuracy and efficiency – the company also increased the stockholding of its retail brand, Scudo, by 40% to help it meet the needs of its retail network.
Speaking about the company’s performance during a challenging period, Shaun Corcoran, commercial director at Harrison Bathrooms, said: “The past 12 months have been unprecedented times for us all. Despite recent retail closures, our business has continued to thrive as a result of people wanting to make home improvements, and more and more customers seeing the benefits of the Scudo brand. This, alongside some of the recent investments we have made in the business, means we are in a fantastic position to continue our growth trajectory.
“At Harrison Bathrooms, we have continued to supply our customers throughout and even increased stockholding to ensure we could meet the increased demand. While it’s been a challenging 12 months, we are delighted still to be on track to meet our ambitious growth plans. This is thanks to our approach of investing in high-quality products at an exceptional price and our customer base being able to retain a very good profit margin.”
Following this continued growth and demand, the bathroom supplier said it remains on track to meet its £40 million turnover target by 2023.
