Happy Birthday Bailey

A year after the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, another British institution is celebrating even longer at the top: Bailey Caravans marks 65 years of business in 2013.

Bailey is the UK’s longest established independent caravan manufacturer and has grown from its South Bristol foundations in 1948 to become one of Europe’s top caravanning brands.

From its humble roots, the company now has a turnover of £900 million and continues to expand its markets – Australia and New Zealand are among the countries it has recently begun exporting to.

Her Majesty The Queen played an important role in kicking off Bailey’s 65th anniversary celebrations last November, when she visited the firm’s manufacturing plant to meet some of the 300-strong staff employed by Bailey, before inspecting several of its caravans and motorhomes.

“Bailey would like to take this opportunity to thank its customers, retailers, suppliers, plus the consumer clubs and the caravan media for the significant contribution they have made to the Company’s continued success of the past 65 years,” remarked Nick Howard, Bailey’s Managing Director.
