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.
Poole-based Pukka Pads has purchased manufacturer and supplier of business forms Inspired Forms (formerly known as Rediset).
Pukka Pads, the internationally-renowned stationery company, has acquired the business and assets of the Poole printing firm as part of its bold statement in entering the business forms market.
Although the company’s name will be changed to Pukka Pads Business Forms, Inspired Forms’ management structure will remain the same with the factory and jobs kept in the town.
Pukka products are sold in 35 countries across the world. Originally, the range consisted of eight different pads. Today, there are few stationery avenues left to explore with around 400 products on the market from quality paper pads and office products to environmentally-friendly recycled pens.
In order to meet the growing requirements of its rapidly expanding client portfolio, Pukka Pads has extended its product range to include Pukka Pads Business Forms as a new addition to the Pukka Pads group of companies.
Commenting on the acquisition, Pukka Pads’ Managing Director Chris Stott said: “We wanted to enter the business forms market and when the opportunity arose to acquire Inspired Forms the decision was easy to make.
“It’s an established business with an experienced management team that will ensure the business remains innovative and competitive.”
This latest acquisition comes hot on the heels of Pukka’s takeover of Grimsby-based Cardinal brands, a leading supplier of high quality paper-based products to the retail, commercial and educational sectors.
