      Victoria Plumb are the UK's No 1 on-line bathroom retailer, supplying quality bathrooms to consumers and trade customers alike. Founded in 1999, as part of the Hull-based Walker Group, they have achieved consistent year on year growth to become one of the UK's most successful pure play retailers.

      After gaining national prominence in 2012 with their first foray into TV advertising, and winning a Retailer of the Year award at the prestigious Venda - ECMOD Direct Commerce Awards in 2013, investment firm TPG Capital purchased a majority stake in 2014.

      The investment has meant a rapid expansion in the workforce and also prompted a move to brand new headquarters in Hessle, East Yorkshire, just a stone's throw from the Humber Bridge and commutable from Hull, Leeds, Sheffield and Doncaster. With an energetic vibe and great facilities, there is plenty of room for further expansion.

      Since 2012 they have grown from under 50 to over 150 employees, with many talented individuals recruited in various areas to help strengthen their proposition and take another big step into the future.
