Staycation boom to create over 200 jobs at County Durham manufacturing plant

A UK manufacturer of caravans and campervans has announced plans to create hundreds of North East jobs with a multi-million pound investment.

Erwin Hymer is set to create over 200 jobs at its County Durham manufacturing facility as part of a £15m investment.

The UK manufacturing plant of Erwin Hymer Group, home of the brands Elddis, Compass, Xplore and Buccaneer, is currently undergoing investment into its land, factory, and machinery as part of a wider transformation plan.

The group has partnered with North East-headquartered recruitment process outsourcing business greenbean to create the new roles.

Carol Butts, HR manager at Erwin Hymer Group, commented: “Our thriving manufacturing plant is at the heart of our Company and is growing in both size and success.

“Our leisure vehicles are in demand – more than ever before, with the rise of the UK Staycation and customers seeking a safer, more secure way to travel.

“Every customer’s vehicle we build is enabling their ambition to travel and explore, which creates an exciting and engaging team spirit within our factory. We look forward to working with our recruitment partner greenbean to welcome our new colleagues to the team and are sure they will enjoy the unique environment at Erwin Hymer Group.”

Louise Reed, head of client solutions at greenbean, added: “We are thrilled to be working in partnership with such a prestigious brand.

“This is an exciting period for Erwin Hymer and we are delighted to be supporting them to find great people to build their multi-award-winning vehicles.”
