Inspirational Omar!

decnews1Further to being announced, once again, as one of the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain, Omar has also been selected as one of 1,000 Companies to Inspire Europe for a second time. This landmark publication, produced by the London Stock Exchange Group, lists the 1,000 most dynamic and fastest-growing Small and Medium-sized Enterprizes (SMEs) in Europe; only 170 British businesses have received this honour.  

To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years. As well as identifying 1,000 high performing companies, the annual report also examines the opportunities and challenges facing SMEs and looks at the sectors and trends that will shape the future of the British and European economies. The full report and further detail on the methodology can be found in the book 1,000 Companies to Inspire Europe and online at www.1000Companies.com.

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 five distinct and respected brands: Omar Park & Leisure Homes, Wessex Unique Lodges & Park Homes, Omar Refurbishment Services, Omar Park Development Services (OPDS) and Boutique Lodges, Holidays by Omar.

The team at Omar has worked tirelessly over recent years to more than treble its sales, taking the group from a £10m business in 2010, to a business with turnover in excess of £39m in 2016/17.

The business currently employs 410 staff; an impressive increase of 272 full-time jobs since May 2011. Alongside this, a successful apprenticeship programme has been developed which is enabling a growing number of young people to enter the industry and learn a trade.  

Due to demand for the group’s luxury lodges and park homes, in 2015 Omar invested in its manufacturing capability by opening a new satellite manufacturing facility in Hull.  2016 saw 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.

In 2017, specialist, park home and lodge renovation services Omar Refurbishment Services was launched.

Omar Group chairman and chief executive, Dean Westmoreland commented: ‘We were extremely proud to once again be named by the London Stock Exchange Group as one of an elite band of SMEs that gives inspiration to the nation.

‘To then go on to be included in a list of companies to inspire Europe, and for a second year running, is a greater honour still. To be included in such a prestigious report is an enormous achievement and testimony to the hard work of the 410 dedicated members of staff here at Omar.’
