Coachman answers production demand with key investment


After securing £10 million of sales at the recent NEC, Motorhome & Caravan Show, Coachman Caravans has made a significant investment in its production facilities.

As a result of our best year yet, this includes the expansion of storage and production space at our factory on Hull’s Sutton Fields Industrial Estate, as well as the introduction of a unique CNC machine, the Morbidelli Author M400F, to increase production.

Alan Roberts, Coachman’s production director, said: “Due to an increase in production demands, we found ourselves working at capacity. A larger storage area and machine shop will enable us to increase space by 456sq m, reorganise the factory layout and become more efficient.

“The new CNC machining centre has been created to our specification and is the first of its kind. It will enable our routering table to be divided into three zones capable of handling a variety of plywood component sizes. This will help increase productivity and marks a significant investment from Coachman, which will stand us in good stead for the future.”

The new production and storage area is currently under construction and will be ready for equipment installation by Christmas.
