10 Dec, 14

Record sales over two months in last quarter of 2014

Bath-based bathroom supplier Roper Rhodes has seen record breaking sales in October and November, with monthly sales topping £4million for the first time in its 35 year history.

For the last two years, the family-owned firm, which donates 3% of its profits annually to charity, has seen turnover rise by over 10%. In its last financial year, which ran from August 1 2013 to July 31 2014, turnover of the business topped £41m, and the company is forecasting similar growth in the current financial year.

Marketing director of Roper Rhodes Simon Taylor says: “Roper Rhodes has been experiencing double-digit growth across all brands over the last few years, which is quite an achievement when you consider that these are post-recessionary times, and we’re delighted to see that momentum continue.”

It has taken two show vans on a nationwide tour to showcase its latest products to retailers. One of the 7.5 tonne lorries is fitted with modular furniture, mirrors and cabinets, while the other boasts sanitaryware and fitted furniture.

The company has an in-house design team and offers a selection of bathroom products from basin units, sanitaryware, taps and showers to mirrors, cabinets and accessories. Roper Rhodes also designed and created Laura Ashley’s first bathroom collection, which it launched earlier this year.
