Thanks to a record-breaking summer, UK Leisure Living expects to hit the 250 unit sales mark by the end of 2018. It means the three-year-old business, which has showrooms in Conwy and Cheshire, is on track to more than double turnover from last year’s £750,000. Gareth Jones, UK Leisure Living’s Managing Director, said the summer heatwave had help drive additional growth, combined with new sales from its range of composite decking. The summer opening of the company’s second showroom at Gordale, one of the North West’s biggest garden and home centres, had also helped to accelerate growth. Gareth, who is the UK Pool & Spa Awards reigning Spa Retailer of The Year was named winner of the Outstanding Entrepreneur category at the 2018 Global Business Excellence Awards, said: “We have enjoyed consistently strong growth throughout 2018, but the long, hot summer definitely helped to bring more customers through the doors of our showrooms. “Hot tubs are being featured more and more on TV shows and recent research suggests that 1 in 10 of us now owns a hot tub. It is now widely seen as something all the family can enjoy – without the need to go abroad on holiday.” Selling three hot tub brands, HotSpring, Elite and its own River range UK Leisure Living plans to create a further six roles across sales, engineering and administration to meet the increased demand, increasing the size of the team to 16. The company is also investigating further showroom openings in other parts of the North West and Midlands.
