UK - Harlequin Floors, flooring provider for dance, performing arts, entertainment and events, has reported “double-digit” revenue growth in 2018/19.
The growth has been recorded across the whole Harlequin Group, which has offices in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific.
Guy Dagger, Group CEO, comments: “Harlequin has experienced incredible global growth over the last year providing internationally renowned brands, venues and performing arts schools with quality performance floors and stages.
“We have seized the opportunity this growth brings to offer all our clients across the world the outstanding customer service that is synonymous with the Harlequin brand. The highlights have probably been the growth in demand we have seen from the top global providers in the production and events industries, building on our many years of experience as the ‘go-to’ brand in the dance, education and performing arts world.”
In the past year, Harlequin has opened a new distribution centre in Las Vegas to service the Mountain and Pacific regions of the USA and northern Mexico. The company has also opened a stage manufacturing facility in Brno, Czech Republic, and a manufacturing plant and a warehouse in Liege, Belgium.
In Australia, Harlequin has recently appointed Fiona Blackett as director, Australian Harlequin. She had previously worked in the UK and HK for J&C Joel, Blackett and is now responsible for all Harlequin operations across Australia and New Zealand.
Dagger continues: “Last year we worked with an incredibly diverse range of customers around the world on an amazing range of projects, from Australian Ballet to the Cirque du Soleil, from Macbeth at the Norwegian Theatre to the Comic Relief Danceathon in London. The objective for the next 12 months is to build upon the success of the last. Improved efficiencies in manufacturing and supply, coupled with an extensive new product development programme, will enable us to deliver the highest quality products tailored to our varied customers’ needs. New distribution channels using a network of local partners will enable us to service the growing demand for our products in even more markets around the world.”
