Hornby named on Superbrand list

Published on: 28th February 2012

The annual Superbrand list has been released and Hornby was pleased to be in the official list of Strongest Brands for 2012.

The list identifies the UK’s strongest consumer and B2B brands and uses the British public in a national survey of over 2,000 adults. Brands do not apply or pay to be considered and experts and consumers are asked to judge brands against the following three factors: quality, reliability and distinction.

Stephen Cheliotis, chairman of the Superbrands Expert Council said: “A Superbrand is one which constantly delivers excellence and quality, and this year’s consumer poll reflects this.  It is a huge achievement that three Hornby brands have made the official 2012 list, revealing their influence on today’s consumers.”

Hornby brands which made the list include Hornby, Airfix and Scalextric.
