Victorian Plumbing has confirmed that it is to employ more people and take on more warehousing space following strong sales growth, boosted by consumers spending more time at home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

More than 400 people currently work for the business which is based in Formby, Merseyside, and a further 80 staff members will be recruited in the near future, predominantly in customer service and logistics positions. 

The online bathroom retailer is planning a 50,000 warehouse space to support the business as orders increase.

Prior to lockdown, Victorian Plumbing predicted that its turnover would rise from £150m to more than £200m.

Victorian Plumbing MD, Stephnie Judge, said: “There has been an increased appetite for home renovations during lockdown and investing in a bathroom revamp has been a key project for many.”

“Consumers are revamping their home for a number of reasons,”

“For some, savings achieved during lockdown have meant they have the cash to invest in their homes. For others, lockdown gave them the additional time to work on such projects and reminded them of the benefits of DIY.

“We are seeing consumers realise the benefits of renovations such as a new bathroom or simply adding a downstairs toilet or separate shower to increase the appeal of their homes to potential buyers.”
