Fifth Wheel invests in local economy

Come-and-visit-Fifth-Wheel

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.

Inos British Caravan

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.

Touring with your own home behind you gives you the freedom to travel where you want, when you want – you’re in control and literally in the driving seat. So when you have that kind of freedom in your life, why should you ever have to compromise on your own personal style and comfort when traveling?

If you’re looking for a caravan that doesn’t make compromises but instead epitomises exclusive design, is incredibly spacious and simply takes your breath away, then the award-winning Inos is for you.

Hand crafted in our factory in Rhuallt, North Wales, the British-built Inos caravan doesn’t just stand out from the crowd; it takes caravanning to the next level and beyond. It cleverly combines five-star hotel luxury with an outstanding build quality and all the practical features required to make travelling across the UK and abroad a breeze.

Launched in 2011, the Inos caravan, with its innovative slide-out section, has the wow factor that many caravan buyers have been yearning for, and still we are the only manufacturer of EU compliant slide-out tourers.

We’d love to meet you
