Poole-based Pukka Pads Business Forms has reported a record growth in business.

The manufacturer and supplier of business forms has more than doubled its trade in its first six months of operation.

In November 2011, the company took over Inspired Forms (formerly known as Rediset) and since then has welcomed back a number of customers who sourced their print requirements from Rediset.

Although the company’s name changed to Pukka Pads Business Forms, the original management structure remained with the factory and jobs kept in the town.

Managing Director and Owner, Chris Stott, said the factory is on course to triple its business in the next few months.

“Business Forms has been a good move for us and we’re delighted with the growth in business in such a short space of time.

“We wanted to enter the business forms market for a while and when the opportunity arose the decision was easy to make.

“We set out to ensure the business remains innovative and competitive and will continue to do so.”

Internationally-renowned Pukka Pads is best known for its range of notepads and paper products, sold by some of the UK’s biggest retailers including Sainsbury’s, WH Smith and Staples.

Its growth into the business forms market has extended the stationery giant’s product range to include all business stationery supplies from bespoke branded products including venue conference pads to customised forms including delivery notes, invoices and statements.
