Homeseeker changes hands

In a move to protect its long-term future, park home manufacturer Homeseeker Park & Leisure Homes has been sold to S.E.K. Manufacturing Ltd by the company’s owners Shepherd Group.

A spokesperson for Shepherd Group, Kurt Calder, confirmed: “Over the past five years the general decline in the performance of the housing market has impacted greatly on the business which has made a series of large operating losses during that period. With the Shepherd Group’s wide range of companies operating successfully and profitably in the engineering, manufacturing and built environment sectors, Homeseeker no longer formed part of the Group’s core strategy for future growth. The decision to sell the business to a manufacturer with significant expertise in this sector represented the best option for the future well-being of the business and its workforce.”

S.E.K’s Silvano Geranio added: “We have a strong desire to secure the future of park home and lodge manufacturing at Rushden. With the Director’s joint industry knowledge and expertise, we feel with the skills and experience of the existing personnel, we can make this site profitable and viable for its long term future.”
