Hoover Candy makes a million freestanding sales in 51 weeks
Hoover Candy, now part of Haier Europe and with headquarters in Warrington, Cheshire, has achieved what the company describes as “a major milestone,” having sold more than one million freestanding appliances within a 12-month period. The sales achievement was ratified on 20th December 2019, with business figures having doubled since 2014.
The company says there has been growth across all product lines, with “notably impressive” sales of washing machines, tumble dryers and fridge freezers.
Steve Macdonald (pictured), business director – freestanding appliances at Hoover Candy, said: “To sell a million freestanding units is no mean feat, but to do it in under 12 months is incredible. For the Freestanding division to achieve a business first in such a notable year for the group is wonderful news and has set strong foundations for a positive start to 2020 and the new decade ahead.”
“To mark such an achievement in lieu of a challenging and changeable market is testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in the supply chain and it’s one we should all be very proud of.”
The company added that the overall success of the UK business in 2019 “also included impressive contributions from the built-in and SDA categories.”
