Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SHREWSBURY, England - Apr 10, 2017 - Shrewsbury-based Mid West Displays was the subject of a buy-out by Wrights Plastics in March last year and both companies can reflect on a successful twelve months. Both have seen order books swell & staffing levels increased to meet demand – despite uncertain market conditions.
Mid West Displays specialise in the manufacture of interior & window display solutions, and are perhaps the leading name in the property sector. Clive Towe was appointed Manager following the take-over and he reflected on the past year. “Obviously there is always uncertainty surrounding any buy-out but the company has gone from strength-to-strength. We have been able to incorporate Wrights Plastics skills & equipment to create new product lines and expand into new markets. We’ve added to the management team as well as production staff here and, 12 months on, there is a really positive vibe in the business.”
MD of both companies Mike Wright confirmed the positive outlook despite the B-word “Barely three months after the buy-out Brexit came along and that has impacted on costs, supplies and buyer confidence but we’ve been able to use the additional manufacturing base & skills of Mid West Displays to expand services, improve processes and minimise the impact of market uncertainty for our customers.”
Wrights Plastics is based in West Bromwich and has remained a family-run business since it was founded in 1969. It specialises in Point of Sale display for clients such as Tesco, Marks & Spencer and Selfridges.
The companies launched their first joint trade show at the prestigious EuroShop Retail Trade Fair in Dusseldorf earlier this month. Mike continued “We’ve targeted export as a key to growth and the show was a great opportunity to strengthen our distributor and client network across Europe. Euroshop was hard work for the teams involved but it appears our investment is already proving worthwhile.”
