The Caldeira growth story is a remarkable one. Sales have grown by an average of almost 50% per annum, year on year, between 1991 & 2004 and continue to grow strongly today.
The company has progressed from a market stall in Liverpool to become the UK’s market leader in the supply of cushions and decorative pillows. Caldeira has since expanded into China, the US and now has its own retail chain. Sales have grown from £600k ($1m) in 1998 to over £20m ($31m) in 2009.
Please note: that the sales above reflect gross sales i.e. sales including inter-company trading.
As a result of this rapid growth and continued success, Caldeira has won many prestigious awards for sales growth, entrepreneurial flair and international trade.
