A European promotional products supplier is set to become one with a leading UK manufacturer by January 2019.
Following the PF Concept acquisition of SPS EU Ltd, based in Blackpool, in December 2017, the two companies will become one operation in early 2019 under the name of PF Concept UK Ltd.
As part of the transition, PF Concept is making significant investments in the UK business to increase capacity, make it easier and faster for customers to place orders, deliver the best customer service possible.
PF Concept and SPS will combine their extensive product portfolios and present customers with one collection, offering PF Concept products alongside a British Collection so that customers can still easily find their preferred products. In preparation for this, PF Concept has relocated its UK sales team and customer service functions to the SPS manufacturing site in Blackpool. The manufacturing site will be known as PF Concept UK operations Ltd.
The combined PF Concept UK team will be led by Phil Morgan, with Tracey Bowen leading the sales and marketing functions.
Tracey Bowen, managing director sales and marketing at PF Concept UK adds: “2019 is set to be a big year for PF Concept, and an exciting year for our customers, as we continue to invest in our British operation. With a unified team, new products, a new facility and new equipment, we believe we will take big strides forward as a business, all of which will be hugely beneficial to our customers.”
Phil Morgan, director and CEO at SPS said: “Just as PF Concept is renowned for a fantastic product range and short lead times, SPS has a great reputation for UK manufacturing. With such a strong focus on the need for re-usable drinkware, our growth has been significant, and this additional investment will be critical to us meeting demand in the UK and across Europe. It’s an exciting time for our UK team, as we see continued investment helping us to become even stronger at what we do so well.”
