Brit Motorhome Maker Closing Down Business

Posted By RVBusiness On August 15, 2012 @ 10:11 am In Breaking News | No Comments

An English motorhome manufacturer has been forced to close its doors, blaming its failure on significantly reduced sales in recent months.

Caravan Times reported that Mexborough-based Bentley Motorhomes has ceased trading, with 26 people losing their jobs as a result of the closure.

The company’s failure is made all the more shocking by its recent success – at the 2012 Caravan Club Awards, it picked up first and second place in the “Coachbuilts $70,000 to $86,000″ category for its Cerise and Amber models respectively. It also won the top two spots in the “Coachbuilts over $86,000″ competition for its Oulton and Mallory models.

But this success was not enough to save the company with insolvency specialist Begbies Traynor blaming a downturn in sales for the failure.

Andrew Cordon, from the administrator’s Nottingham office, said: “It is particularly disappointing to be called into such a well-run company and one that has an excellent reputation for the quality of its products.”
