Fifth Wheel invests in local economy

North Wales tourer manufacturer Fifth Wheel Company has stopped importing its wood furnishings from Italy in favour of a local business just 10 miles away.

 

In a bid to increase productivity and to become more flexible in meeting customer requests, Rhuallt based Fifth Wheel has appointed Complete Tooling Solutions Limited (CTS), which has recently established new premises in Cefndy Road , Rhyl, to supply wood furniture for its luxury caravan and fifth wheel tourer range.

 

Sales Director at Fifth Wheel Company, Adrian Parry- Jones, said: “We design and assemble all our tourers at our head office in Rhuallt. We have had a long tradition of supporting our local economy so we’re delighted to transfer our wood furniture supplier from a company in Italy to a local manufacturer.”

 

As part of the contract, CTS has brought several new pieces of equipment to enable them to build the specialist furniture for Fifth Wheel including a new computer controlled router, automatic drilling and edging machinery and industrial circular saw.

 

Adrian added: “We’ve seen huge benefits from working with a local supplier. Not only is the actual product better value but we also have more control over the quality of the materials.
“We are able to order lower quantities and therefore have less capital tied up in stock. This means that we can make changes to the design and specifications quickly are more flexible to our customer requests.
“When we manufactured abroad we had a number of problems which were primarily to do with communication and transportation. Many companies in Italy closed for the whole of August and last year we struggled to get stock from our previous supplier for eight weeks, which slowed down our productivity.”
Gary Lewis, Managing Director of CTS said: “We are delighted to have made a partnership with Fifth Wheel to provide them with their wood furnishing and we have developed a strong relationship with them.
“Like Fifth Wheel we are a strong believer in investing in local businesses which is why we are delighted to have started working with a company just 10 miles away.”

 

Fifth Wheel, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, designs and manufacturers unique fifth wheel tourers the Celtic Rambler and Dreamseeker, as well as a luxury caravan model the Inos.

The Fifth Wheel Company is truly a family affair. Based in the stunning North Wales countryside of Rhuallt, Denbighshire, we founded the Fifth Wheel Company in 2002.

dream-seeker-north-wales

Originally set up by husband and wife team Mervyn and Jenny Parry-Jones in conjunction with their son Adrian – it wasn’t long before daughter Ceri moved back to join the team. So how did we end up designing and manufacturing fifth wheels? Well back in 1997, we managed a successful Massey Ferguson tractor dealership. Needing a comfortable base when exhibiting tractors at shows and events, we imported a fifth wheel from America. It wasn’t long before our new tourer was attracting interest among friends and colleagues. And this planted a seed in Mervyn’s mind.

“We loved the sheer comfort, luxury and flexibility of our tourer and realised that there was a gap in the UK market.”

In the 1990s the only option was to import from the US, followed by a lengthy and expensive process of conversion to ensure it met UK standards including brakes, electrics and gas systems. So when someone asked why we didn’t start producing them, we couldn’t think of a good reason. Within six months we had developed our first prototype of a UK version – more suited to smaller European roads and compliant with European standards – and the dream began to take shape.

“Since we started the Fifth Wheel Company in 2002, Fifth Wheel Co. have gone on to win numerous accolades, including The Caravan Club Design Awards five years in a row, been hailed as ‘the biggest thing to hit the UK caravan market in 20 years’ and achieved a verdict of 10 out of 10 by The Caravan Club Magazine.”

We’d love to meet you.
