In 2019 the company sold 1,200 units, whi ch represents most of the company’s revenue. Further information about Robinsons Caravans Ltd can be found on the corporate website www.robinsonscaravans.co.uk The acquisition of Robsinson Caravans will establish a fifth industry vertical, “Leisure”, along side Education, Construction Services, Engineering and Health.

CEO of diversified investment public company: “We are looking forward to establishing the new ‘Leisure’ industry vertical. The Robinsons Caravans team bring with them generations of experience in their industry, making them the perfect leaders of the new group. Their ambition to grow through acquisitions allows our diversified investment public company to support them in one of the many benefits of joining this growth platform, and we look forward to encouraging them to do that as part of the group.

The Leisure vertical will be led by Paul Seabridge, CEO of Robinson Caravans. In accordance to statistics released by the NCC (the UK trade bod y representing the collective interests of four product sectors tourer, motorhome and caravan holiday home (leisure products) and residential park homes), the caravan & camping industry contributes £6bn to the UK economy with 98% of tourer caravans being bought by UK consumers. The UK motorhome market experienced annual growth rates since 2013, having almost doubled the number of new registrations per year to over 14,000.

There are a number of opera tors and being part of a diversified investment vehicle and having access to the public markets means consolidating some of the operators through acquisitions, providing a tremendous opportunity to quickly take advantage of this we want to build the numb er one caravans and motorhome group providing a superb experience for customers and staff as we go on this exciting journey with a diversified investment public company together.”
