SPS acquires High Profile for a Great British offering

SPS has announced the acquisition of High Profile in a move that will further strengthen the company’s offering when it comes to British-made promotional products.

With ambitious plans for growth after a management buy-out last year, the leadership team at SPS view the acquisition of High Profile as a fantastic move for Great British manufacturing, as both companies will benefit from the shared experience, knowledge and business processes.

Phil Morgan, CEO of SPS, said: “SPS and High Profile are a great, natural fit thanks to the strong portfolio of British-made products. We’ve seen a massive increase in demand for our manufactured products, in particular, drinkware, and we have been keen to increase the range of UK-made products in our range.

“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, tool-making 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.”

Both companies assured customers that it would be “business as usual” with the two key contacts at High Profile, Richard Wood and Richard Hope-Jones, remaining at the helm. Celia Graham continues as the account manager, and all customer service and production operations will continue to be handled by the High Profile team. Richard added: “I’m very much looking forward to seeing how our shared ideas and manufacturing knowledge will serve to take both companies forward.”
