NCC visits Westminster MP's to highlight the importance of the caravan industry

Last week the NCC visited Westminster to inform MP’s about the work of the trade association. The event, which attracted 22 MP’s gave the NCC the opportunity to talk about the importance of the leisure vehicle industry in the UK economy. The leisure vehicle industry is worth an estimated £6 billion to the UK economy and with signs that this could rise with a record breaking attendance of almost 87,000 visitors to the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show at the NEC in Birmingham this February.
With around 95% of touring caravans in country made in the UK, the caravan sector represents a manufacturing success story, employing about 130,000 people. Since the economic downturn, holidays in Britain have increased with more than 2.4 billion being spent on caravan holidays alone and more than 51 million nights were spent in caravans. Currently there are 550,000 touring caravans and more than 205,000 motorhomes registered in the UK which is a huge number, let alone the reported figure of 330,000 caravan holiday homes – this totals to more than one million leisure accommodation vehicles.
MP’s came out in support of the sector and the NCC Deputy Director Alicia Dunne had this to say about the visit:
“Working together, the NCC and the government can grow this industry further and provide more opportunities employment opportunities and deliver outstanding holiday experiences.”
Here at The Fifth Wheel Company we understand the importance of creating more employment opportunities. For a number of years we have teamed up with Bangor University to provide their aspiring design students with the chance to experience a working environment in product design. In addition to this partnership, The Fifth Wheel Company and Bangor University have teamed up for the Enterprise by Design Awards in 2015. This is where students across varied disciplines team up and have been asked to combine their knowledge and creativity to pitch an idea that could improve the current Fifth Wheel Products.
Head Designer Gethin had this to say about the partnership:
“This is an ideal partnership and initiative as students gain valuable experience and have the chance to transfer their theoretical knowledge into a real life scenario. We look forward to listening to all the pitches.”
Enterprise by design is an innovative program which teams up students over a variety of disciplines to create and pitch a new product to a panel of experts. There is an also added incentive to the teams with the winners receiving £2500, and also having their product considered for launch by the company.

The Fifth Wheel Company Experience Day

Fifth wheel co.

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.
