We are proud to announce that Park Leisure have been shortlisted for both SME and Manufacturing Business of the Year in the Kent Excellence in Business Award 2016. Two of the judging panel will be visiting us in April. The will be taking a tour of our offices and factory, getting a first-hand impression of what it is Park Leisure do for the south east on a daily basis.
We have been awarded this nomination because of our extraordinary journey over the past two years. When the business was purchased by Jupiter Play and Leisure at the end of 2013 it was in administration and 25 staff were facing redundancy. The sale of the business went through on Christmas Eve 2013, with all staff retaining their jobs. The history of 25 years manufacturing in the Kent area was not to be lost.
New owners Paul and Michael Hoenigmann paid all staff their outstanding salary from November and December 2013 benicar online. Retaining the knowledge and expertise that the business had accrued over years was important to them. Throughout the next two years, further investments have been made in the company, ensuring the staff have the latest tools, software and training.
The main aim was not to only return to profitability and be sustainable. It was to develop the business and its UK manufacturing capability for the long term in Kent.
We are honoured to be nominated and will look forward to when the winners will be announced in June!
