Mobile Fun says fast international growth helped it to lift its sales by 10% over its latest financial year to £10m.
The mobile accessories retailer enjoyed a 161% uplift in international sales to £3.4m, on the back of new website launches in Spain and the Netherlands, adding to sites in the UK, France and Germany. Vanesa Nunez and Robin Verschuren, pictured above, manage the Spanish and Dutch sites, respectively.
Mobile Fun says it is now on course to hit sales of £12m over the next financial year.
Mohammed Hussain, managing director of Mobile Fun, said: “Despite the UK economy experiencing negative growth for most of the last financial year, our continued international expansion has seen us achieve enviable progress. Not only did we start the 2011-12 financial year strongly, with a profitable presence in three of the largest countries worldwide for ecommerce, but our roll out of further European websites started to establish a stronger international footprint for Mobile Fun.”
Other highlights from the year included the first month in which turnover passed £1m for the first time, reaching £1.1m in December 2011. The company has also recently launched sites in Italy, Australia, Canada, India and the USA.
