Vado celebrates 25th Birthday
The 8th June 1988 saw the creation of Vado, or Eurobath as it was known in those days. The world has developed significantly during those 25 years; the creation and use of mobile phone technology, the Internet, dvd's, five UK prime ministers - not to mention Vado's meteoric growth and most recently the acquisition of Vado by Norcros.
Despite all of those momentous changes the original founding principles of that small business from 1988 remain the same; quality, design and service.
The company began those 25 years ago as a small operation distributing bathroom accessories and gradually developing its own products and brands, expanding into taps, showers and valves.
Vado now has a workforce of 150 people, with sales to over 60 countries worldwide, achieving in excess of £26 million in sales turnover.
Vado operates in the mid and high end markets boasting a broad customer base with particular strength within the contract and specification sector, where it enjoys an impressive high quality project list in residential, commercial, hotel and leisure developments throughout the world. In the retail sector it focuses on high end boutique retailers and merchants, with established relationships with over 1,000 customers.
To commemorate this recent milestone in the company's history is holding a 'birthday party' for all members of staff and their families in recognition of their support and dedication to Vado.
Here's to the next 25 years!
