Navigating the world of manufacturing can be challenging.
This is the world that we thrive in and understand.
Two full time Directors working in the business, we ensure that we exceed expectations with our clients.
No middle men! We buy directly from factories, and have built up a strong network of suppliers that we trust, and work with to create bespoke products for our clients.
The supply chain that we buy from is important to us, and we work with our factories on a realistic approach to timings, production and design.
Manufacturing made easy. Use our network of factories to produce your products.
Our service begins from the design of the product, right through to the manufacturing process and finally, importation and delivery.
Although our product range is vast, we are specialists in products used for in store promotions, on pack offers, gift with purchase and promotional items.
We know that ordering promotional items can be difficult, and sometimes some ideas and direction is needed! We have an online catalogue to browse and get some ideas, product availability and pricing. These items are available in stock and can be delivered pretty quickly.
