The two companies are set to become one in early January Following the PF Concept acquisition of SPS EU in December 2017, the two companies will become one operation in early 2019 under the name of PF Concept UK.
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 and 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 The 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 combined PF Concept UK team will be led by Phil Morgan, with Tracey Bowen leading the sales and marketing functions.
The business has plans to expand its operations to take on an additional 30,000sq ft next to the current Blackpool manufacturing facility. This area will become a dedicated print unit, supporting the team in delivering extra printing capabilities and helping to reduce current lead times.
PF Concept has also acquired the assets of Paper Innovation, a specialist in sticky-note products. Quarter one of 2019 will see the launch of a wide range of sticky-note products, all manufactured in Blackpool.
