Great news to hear that Lunar Caravans has been acquired by a specialist engineering group who say they are driving forward its 2020 season plans.
Trading under the new name of Lunar Automotive, the company has become part of MEWA, a South African specialist engineering group, founded by Cecil Marks.
Lunar Automotive director Nicholas Marks said the MEWA group has been involved in specialist engineering and component manufacture for 100 years.
“This experience and capability, coupled with the manufacturing expertise acquired with the existing team at Lunar, bodes well for the brand, not only to celebrate its 50th anniversary but to look forward to the next 50 years,” he added.
With the production of caravans scheduled for September, the 2020 demonstrator models are ready to be introduced to the dealer network. The sales team, headed up by Lee Roberts, who has been an integral part of the Lunar team for more than six years, is strongly focused on maximising the success of the new season launch.
Nicholas confirmed that dealers remain very supportive and that he will be confirming the network in the near future. He also said motorhomes would continue to be an integral part of Lunar’s expanded product range.
“We are discussing some interesting ideas that will continue to show the ingenuity of our design and production teams going forward,” said Nicholas.
Lunar Automotive said the new season would see a strong focus on exceptional build quality with longer-term plans to include some very exciting products using innovative engineering, design and manufacturing processes.
Caravan Guard can also confirm that it will continue to insure Lunar caravans and motorhomes up to 25 years old.
