There’s cause for celebration at the offices of Smart Homes Sounds – the Gloucester-based home audio company, founded by ex-English rugby player Andy Hazell, has recorded a growth of 100% over the last 24 months, generating an annual turnover of £3m.
The company with offices at Churcham Business Park in Gloucester and a state of the art ‘listening pod’ in Cheltenham, is a retailer for smart speakers and stocks ranges by Sonos, Bluesound, Kef, Bowers and Wilkins and, most recently, Marshall.
Andy Hazell, MD, Smart Home Sounds said: “We’re delighted with these latest figures that pay testament to the hard work of the team here. We’ve seen the popularity of smart speakers surge, especially in the past 12 months and, as a result, we’re growing month on month.
“We’ve had a really busy few months with the launch of three new products from Sonos. We’ve also launched our new website and added Bowers & Wilkins to our product range. In addition, we’ve recently secured the iconic brand Marshall which we can start selling soon which is a great addition for us.”
Hazell continues: “Website traffic has also doubled with customers viewing our ever-popular vlogs and video tutorials. In a busy market it’s important that we continue to innovate and offer our customers something our competitors don’t. I truly believe that our shopping experience and level of product support is hard to beat anywhere in the UK.”
