UK – The British promotional products supplier and manufacturer, SPS, has taken over the British plastic specialist, High Profile Plastic Products. “SPS and High Profile are a great, natural fit, thanks to the strong portfolio of products ‘made in Britain‘. We’ve seen a massive increase in demand for our manufactured products, in particular drinkware. As a manufacturer of bespoke plastic products, High Profile have a product range which fits perfectly with our existing selection. The blend of our design teams, toolmaking experience and production expertise will be a great benefit to both companies. Additionally, High Profile will benefit from the design innovation and sales and marketing channels of SPS, allowing a greater presence in both the UK and Europe,” stated Phil Morgan, CEO of SPS. And Richard Wood, Managing Director of High Profile, added: “I’m very much looking forward to seeing how our shared ideas and manufacturing knowledge will serve to take both companies forward. This move will also be great for further establishing the High Profile product range in the UK and across Europe, thanks to the existing sales and marketing channels at SPS.“
The take-over will lead to no changes for the customers of High Profile: The main contact persons Richard Wood and Richard Hope-Jones will carry on running the company and Celia Graham will also continue her work as Account Manager. As usual, the customer service and production activities will be carried out by the High Profile team.
According to own accounts, after the management buy-out completed last year, SPS has experienced large growth. The company is one of the biggest promotional products manufacturers in Europe and has been operating successfully on the market for over 20 years. High Profile was founded over 25 years ago and has also made a name for itself as a manufacturer of individual plastic products.
