The Hemsworth, a popular model from the original range, has been retained but will feature exciting new interior design for 2022. The Charmouth and the Baywater, two stunning all-new models, have also been added to complete the line-up.
The project to establish the new manufacturing facility, showground and hub for Omar Group businesses to operate from, was led by David Maguire who has 11.5 years with the Group. David has a background in operations, manufacturing, engineering, project management and supply chain, in a number of diverse industries including projects with Airbus and Alstom Transport.
An industry leading team have been assembled to lead Regal Leisure Homes. The new team includes Nigel Heslington, previously Managing Director for Regal Holiday Homes and BK Bluebird; Mike Clifford (Technical and Design), Mike also has a long heritage with Regal Holiday Homes and BK Bluebird, and Anysia Hopkins (Design Manager), who was previously with Regal Holiday Homes.
The new five acre, 54,000sqft site, is specially configured to manufacture premium holiday homes on three production lines, along with a showground which will showcase Regal, Wessex and Omar products. The site will also include customer meeting facilities, a boardroom and an Omar and Wessex customer specification room. The facility has ample space for the business to expand and is capable of producing over £50m worth of premium holiday homes per annum at trade prices.
The new facility, as well as being the Regal HQ and manufacturing site, will complete Omar Groups’ series of regional hubs which includes the Groups’ headquarters at Pleszko House in Brandon Suffolk, New Weldon House in Hull, and Randle House, Stourbridge in the West Midlands. The new facilities in Dorset will provide a base for UK Sundecks, Omar Refurbishment Services, Group aftersales, and the Omar sales team for the south of England.
Nigel Heslington, Founder of Regal stated: “The last two years have been extremely challenging. We had a deal agreed and in place to become part of Omar Group at the start of 2020, however, the global pandemic put this on hold. Our new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, with extensive office and customer facilities, all-new capital equipment and 3 efficient and effective production lines, will deliver our all-new range of products with better, repeatable product quality, in a manner that our old facility at Wareham never afforded us.
