Airstream & Company has announced "exciting" plans for the coming year.

The iconic American brand has enjoyed a surge in demand in both the UK and European market and British distributor Airstream & Company is now expanding its team in its Cumbrian headquarters as well as its depot in Andoversford, Gloucestershire.

Since the company brought the range across the Atlantic to the UK in 2006, it has seen hugely positive results with the popularity of its models soaring.

Michael Hold, sales director, said: "This is fantastic news for the British market as it means that here we will have the space, time and freedom to concentrate on further increasing sales and offering a better service and repairs facility."

In response to its recent success, Airstream & Company has stated that Dave Hughes and Christian Rengers will be joining its Cumbrian base while Pete Bull will become depot manager at the firm's southern base.

The move is designed to secure Airstream's status as one of the leading RV brands in the UK.
