Aga sales fall

Posted on 14 Jan 2008 by The Manufacturer

Sales of Aga, Rayburn and Stanley cookers have fallen slightly from the 20,000 units sold in 2006.

Rangemaster cookers, however, experienced a 10 per cent rise in sales for 2007, taking the figure to an impressive 75,000 units.

The Fired Earth and Grange brands, which had been going through a “sticky patch”, also saw some sales improvement. “We are confident of [their] prospects going forward,” said chief executive William McGrath.

2008 is expected to “prove a demanding year for consumer businesses,” according to McGrath, although improved products and a widening of the Rangemaster appliance range are hoped to increase group revenue.
