Victoria Plumb is a locally-run and locally-financed bathroom retailer which is well on the way to achieving its goal of establishing itself among the big players in the national market (and beyond).
Ranked 14th in the Yorkshire Post business list of best run SMEs in the region (February 2012), the brand has seen strong double-digit growth for the last 2 years and continues to expand rapidly.
The business is investing in materials to cope – redesigning our warehousing to cope with more capacity. The workforce is also growing and the business is very proud to be generating even more Yorkshire jobs this year – six in the online marketing team alone.
Our goal is for more growth in 2012 as we plan to beef up our marketing, sales and fulfilment departments.
We are proud of our Yorkshire heritage and our basic principles – offering our customers the best mix of price, quality and service possible – is the same thinking that has given this region its worldwide reputation for industry and commercial achievement.
We Succeed Through Innovation
Through close contact with our suppliers, staff and customers we are able to innovate, not only in what we sell, but also who to and how. Our desire to innovate means that we are not afraid of trying anything new or large-scale: we think it will be key to differentiating our brand from our competitors. Our best ideas come from our can-do culture that pushes us to find new products to source and new ways to please our customers so that we can successfully challenge the big industry players down South.
Customer Service Is Key
Customer service is vital to our success, and the whole business is involved in keeping our customers happy. Our website is clear and easy to use, with features such as FAQs, helpful hints and clear product specifications for easy installation. Our stock management and delivery systems mean over 90% of our orders are delivered on time and in full. Our call centre is friendly and responsive and is regularly praised in reviews. We score very well in product and service reviews and our rating on independent websites like Trustpilot consistently beats our competitors (usually by 20%-30%)
Our Staff Drive Our Success
Employee motivation goes beyond simply salary and business performance bonuses. We have moulded a very tight team who are encouraged to work and play together, and who can make suggestions and promote ideas on any subject. All ideas are properly considered, and colleagues make their contributions knowing that they will be duly credited for them. In turn, the business success of many of these ideas provides further motivation and, of course, job security. Staff turnover is minimal and employees are positive about recommending new potential candidates when job opportunities arise.
We Measure Our Performance
We are constantly measuring and reviewing our processes and KPIs to help forecast supply and demand, and identify opportunities for improving the volume, quality and feedback on sales – whether this means buying in additional expertise in support and staff, or working with suppliers to improve the use of data in the business.
“I am a new starter myself this year and I have been really impressed by the culture here. There is a good mix of characters and skills, some born and bred in Hull, some from further afield, but the working culture is professional and fun. Everybody here is really positive and keen to get involved. The team are supportive of new ideas and keen to make the business a success. I come in daily from Leeds and am very pleasantly surprised by the ease of the commute.”

“As one of Victoria Plumbs longest serving employees I have seen the company increase in size over a number of years and have been given the opportunity to grow professionally within it. I think it’s great that I can work alongside people with both a sense of humour and a serious and responsible approach to their work, the atmosphere is great and the knowledge that the company is growing and moving forward makes the future full of great opportunities.”
