Amica’s UK branch was the group’s most “dynamic” for sales in 2014, seeing more than 50% growth last year while the business as a whole experienced a 22% increase in revenues to reach PLN 2bn – around £350.5m.
Last year, Amica entered new markets including Spain, Portugal, Iran, Iraq, Moocco, Vietnam and Australia to sell its ranges of built-in and freestanding appliances. The cooling, ovens and hobs and freestanding cookers categories experienced growth in 2014.
“The independent electrical and kitchen retailer has been loyal to Amica over recent years. By building on this solid foundation with new products, technology and services the brand is now in a position to grow exponentially on the groundworks we have all worked so hard to lay,” said UK & Ireland country manager Simon Freear.
“Consumer awareness is growing and with the new extended range of induction hobs, hoods and a new suite of cooking products including double ovens in all fuels, the brand is poised to achieve great things in the UK and Ireland.” Simon concludes, “..the UK is a very important market to Amica and those doing business with us can expect exciting things during 2015/16.”
