Hoover Candy breaks one million freestanding sales ceiling in 51 weeks

Hoover Candy is celebrating after reaching a major milestone of selling more than one million freestanding appliances within a 12-month period.

The sales achievement was ratified on 20th December 2019, with business figures having doubled versus 2014, the company said.

Hoover Candy has experienced major growth across all product lines, with notably impressive sales of washing machines, tumble dryers and fridge freezers.

This accomplishment marks the end of a successful year for the Warrington-headquartered business which was acquired by Haier Europe in January 2019.

Steve Macdonald, business director – freestanding appliances at Hoover Candy, said: “To sell a million freestanding units is no mean feat, but to do it in under 12 months is incredible.

“For the Freestanding division to achieve a business first in such a notable year for the group is wonderful news and has set strong foundations for a positive start to 2020 and the new decade ahead.

“To mark such an achievement in lieu of a challenging and changeable market is testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in the supply chain and it’s one we should all be very proud of.”

Hoover Candy was the fastest-growing household appliance manufacturer in Europe in 2018, while 2019’s overall success of the UK business also included impressive contributions from the built-in and SDA categories.
