Campervan manufacturer Wellhouse Leisure has sold its 100th Ford Terrier vehicle – in record time.
The important milestone comes less than a year since the Shepley-based firm launched the Terrier campervan in October, 2013, at the Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC, Birmingham.
The 100th vehicle has been bought by a West Yorkshire couple, Mr and Mrs Buckett, who expect to take delivery of their new campervan in April, 2015.
This will be their first campervan, which they intend to use for short breaks in the UK before heading overseas later in the year.
Mr Buckett said: “We have been planning to buy a campervan for many years and have been to the Wellhouse showroom several times, so it came as a lovely surprise to discover we were the 100th fans.
“This will be perfect to also use as an everyday car, but also a wonderful way to have a whole different way of life and be able to get away from it all as often as we can without all the hassle and expense of staying in a hotel or B&B.”
Wellhouse managing director David Elliott said: “We are delighted to have sold our 100th Terrier and, to be honest, I must admit we’re also pleasantly surprised as we didn’t dare dream that we would reach this level of sales so quickly.
“The Terrier exceeded even our boldest sales forecasts, thanks to its winning combination of high standard specification, great design and good value for money.”
To keep up with demand as well as the production of demonstrators for the growing number of Ford retailers who will be selling the Terrier, Wellhouse Leisure has invested £125,000 in new equipment for its factory and has recruited 10 extra staff.
