Wellhouse Leisure looks forward to Stellar future with Lunar

Wellhouse LeisureWellhouse Leisure has been acquired by Lunar Caravans, one of the UK’s leading caravan and motorhome manufacturers, to form a new business venture, Lunar Campers Limited.

Since Wellhouse Leisure was founded 15 years ago, it has become one of the UK’s most successful campervan manufacturers with a range of award-winning models, such as the Hyundai i800 and the Ford Terrier, offering value for money and high quality.

The collaboration with Lunar will create a new business venture, Lunar Campers Limited, and means Wellhouse Leisure will receive valuable investment to develop new camper models.

Demand for new Wellhouse Terrier models has outgrown the current capacity at Wellhouse Leisure’s factory in Skelmanthorpe, near Huddersfield, so production will move to Lunar’s factory in Preston in late 2017. This will enable production of new Wellhouse Terrier campervans to almost double to 400 or more per year, and enable exports to Lunar’s continental dealer network.

The Wellhouse Ford Terrier by Lunar Campers makes its official European launch on the Lunar Caravans stand at Europe’s largest caravan and motorhome show, the Caravan Salon in Dusseldorf, Germany from 26 August to 3 September. David Elliott, the Managing Director of Wellhouse Leisure, who becomes the Sales Director of Lunar Campers said: “I am extremely excited by this opportunity to work with Lunar and build on the success of our campers. Lunar already has lots of experience of building smaller campers and Wellhouse Leisure and Lunar Caravans have a great synergy together, so this is a valuable opportunity for us to develop Lunar Campers as the leading campervan producer not just in the UK, but all of Europe.”

Brian Mellor, CEO of Lunar Holdings said: “Adding campervans to our range of caravans and motorhomes is an exciting next step for Lunar, and we really recognise the hard work Wellhouse Leisure has put in to developing its Ford Terrier. The design, high quality and value for money of
the Wellhouse product is a perfect match for Lunar and we are enjoying working together making plans for a Stellar future of Lunar Campers.”
