Omar Group named as one of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain in 2016

Omar Group is delighted to announce that they have been named as one of the London Stock Exchange Group’s, 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain (an annual celebration of some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK) in 2016.

As a market leading, solutions provider, designer and manufacturer to the residential park home and lodge park marketplace, Omar Group has built up its brand portfolio over recent years, and the group now encompasses four distinct and respected brands: Omar Park & Leisure Homes, Wessex Unique Lodges & Park Homes, Omar Park Development Services (OPDS) and Boutique Lodges, Holidays by Omar.

The team at Omar have worked tirelessly over the past six years to more than treble their sales, taking the group from a £10m business in 2010, to a business with turnover in excess of £30m in 2015.

Over the last three years the company has created 220 new full time jobs, and last year ten apprentices were recruited, who will be trained in trades as diverse as Information Technology and Computer Aided Design to Carpentry and Plumbing. 

Due to demand for the group’s luxury lodges and park homes, in 2015 Omar invested in its manufacturing capability by opening a new production plant in Hull.  2016 see’s further significant investment with a 40,000 sq ft. factory extension to the group’s 13½-acre production facility at its headquarters in Brandon, Suffolk.

2015 also saw the launch of Boutique Lodges, Holidays by Omar (Omar Franchising Limited), a unique franchise opportunity for landowners to create their own holiday lodge park following tried and tested methodology.

Omar Group CEO, Dean Westmoreland commented: “We are proud of what we have achieved as a team here at Omar Group over the past six years. To be named by the London Stock Exchange Group as one of an elite band of SMEs that gives inspiration to the nation is a real credit to the 350 plus strong team we have working here.  The marketplace has been very challenging post credit crunch and we are rightly proud to have received this accolade.”
