Owners of mobile homes with Whale caravan taps may soon be able to add underfloor heating to their caravan accessories after the Bangor-based manufacturer announced plans to work with Elddis to provide the new system.
Whale, which has offered a variety of products to the industry for decades, has secured the largest contract in its history by signing on with the Durham-based caravan provider.
It will help install underfloor heating systems designed to save space inside the vehicle and increase the living area available to customers. This new feature is expected to be part of at least 50 per cent of Elddis' range of caravans.
Patrick Hurst, managing director at Whale, said the contract is a success story for the domestic manufacturing industry.
"This contract with Elddis is hugely significant for the company, it's the spring board to take further business from our competitors in 2013," he added.
Elddis was founded in 1964 and provides caravans to both the British and European markets.
