Manufacturers agree collaboration

Manufacturers agree collaborationOmar Homes has signed an exclusive partnership agreement with Finnish Log Homes

Two of the biggest names in mobile home manufacture have signed an agreement which aims to enhance the quality of homes available to the buying public.

Omar and Finnish Log Homes (FLH) will work together to design, manufacture, promote and sell luxury timber clad leisure homes and log cabins. Omar has been working with the owners and directors of FLH since 2008. Under this new agreement, the two businesses will work more closely together and Omar will manufacture FLH on an exclusive basis. This agreement allows FLH to use Omar’s manufacturing facilities and tap into Omar’s knowledge and experience. Omar will enjoy an increase in production volume and will collaborate on leisure developments that require larger building regulations as well as Omar’s luxury lodges.

Dean Westmoreland, chief executive and owner of Omar, said, ‘This strategic collaboration is another of Omar’s expansion initiatives that have seen our business deliver an average of 15 per cent growth per year across the past four years at a time when our core market has been at best flat.

‘We are ready to market the brand new 2014 range of Finnish Log Homes which includes a brand new model, as well as new improved layouts for popular models like the Finnish Contemporary and the Fairway.’

FLH has been providing market leading log buildings for more than ten years. FLH’s products are available in solid log construction as well as a log clad finish. It offers exciting, modern 21st century homes such as the stunning Finnish Contemporary as well as more traditional log cabins such as the Fairway.

FLH chairman and owner Pete Withey said, ‘Under this agreement we can continue to address the market for small developments and private land owners but also more readily offer our outstanding product range to the larger commercial market.’

Omar and FLH are already working in concert on some significant park developments as well as manufacturing log cabins and lodges for private land owners.

Omar will offer FLH’s extra thick pine and spruce wood cladding as an option on all of the homes in its own luxury lodge range. The businesses will also collaborate closely on shows and promotional events. Finnish Log Homes 2014 collection will be available to view at Omar’s Brandon showground from October.

Omar’s showground is at 227 London Road, Brandon, Suffolk, IP27 0NE.
