Coronation Promotions acquire The Promotional Chocolate Co
11th October 2017 | Posted by Lauren
Coronation Promotions, who have been supplying top quality promotional confectionery for almost 30 years, are pleased to announce that they have acquired the ongoing business of The Promotional Chocolate Co Ltd.
The two businesses have been working alongside each other for a number of years before The Promotional Chocolate Co’s director Fiona Vannart decided to sell the business.
“She didn’t want to just close for the sake of the existing accounts who she’d looked after for years,” explained Andy Bradbury, joint MD of Coronation Promotions. “Luckily she approached us and thought we were the best people to look after them for her so we reached an agreement and we’re now currently speaking to all of existing accounts”
The acquisition comes just in time to pick up orders in the run up to the festive season. “September, October and November are the busiest months for us, with December being very quiet as everything is done, dusted and delivered by then.
“Next year we will have been trading for 30 years and we’ve seen a lot of changes over that time. The days of five and six week lead-times are long gone and the development and improvements in digital printing have enabled us to offer a full-colour print on small minimum orders with a short lead-time. Basically, you need to be able to turn a product around quickly for it to sell.”
“We’re delighted to be able to take up the mantle of The Promotional Chocolate Co and look forward to working with their accounts going forward”
