100th Anniversary of the First Hornby Locomotive
As of June this year; it has been 100 years since
Over the last century much has happened including world wars, economic crises and of course this terrible global pandemic which hit our shores earlier this year. However, customers derive a great deal of value from our products and stick with us in good times and bad. Hornby has been more fortunate than many and our sales have held up well since the lockdown started. Our staff have been fantastic throughout, adapting and responding to the challenges, helping to support the continued demand from our customers.
We have found many new and returning customers purchasing our products. Families are building plastic kits together, bringing out their railway systems, setting up their slot car racing sets and introducing our brands to their children and grandchildren. We are so fortunate to own Hornby, Scalextric, Airfix, Corgi, Humbrol and our portfolio of international brands which still mean so much to those in each of the markets they serve.
Initially, we ensured that we were able to survive the crisis physically, emotionally and financially. We then looked for ways to help others. Our main focus was on supporting the National Health Service, offering discounts to NHS and Emergency Service operatives. As the situation developed, and our employees suffered the loss of their loved ones around the world, we felt that we had to do more.
