Scottish converter Jerba Campervans has reported its best opening two quarters after achieving a turnover of £1.8m for the January to June period.

This represented a £600,000 in year-on-year growth for the company, which is based in North Berwick and features in our guide to the best campervan conversion companies UK.

Simon Poole, the company’s founder, said this growth was due to a combination of factors, including “investments in the firm’s operations, a return to a regular supply chain following post-Covid delays and real focus by employees on improving productivity”.

Now, the company is forecast for a turnover of £3.8m, surpassing the previous record from 2021 by £800,000.

Investments from Jerba have seen 200 sqm added to its production floor. Since January, when this was put into operation, campervan production has increased by roughly 20%, while habitation checks and vehicle servicing are also now both on offer.

A new Computer Numerical Cutting machine has also been added, which allows for more precise cutting of numerous materials for ‘vans.

As well as this, the campervan company is hopeful of having a formal partnership with Ford by the end of 2024, and is already underway with designs for the recently announced Ford Transit Custom, a base vehicle that made it into our best van for a camper conversion guide.

In other industry news, Knaus and Weinsberg have announced they will each be releasing a new Mercedes Sprinter-based ‘van for the 2025 season.
