Glue Dots International has appointed Personal Impressions as its new distributor for the craft, stationery, art and education trade sectors.
Dave Angus, Glue Dots European key account manager, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Personal Impressions who are very well known in the industry for their brand-focused range of craft products including: Fiskars, Mod Podge, Me & My Big Ideas, Ranger, Simple Stories, Spellbinders, TSUKINEKO and We R Memory Keepers.
“Personal Impressions will distribute Glue Dot’s complete adhesive range and was considered a perfect fit due to the way they support their portfolio of brands. We also liked their personal family-friendly approach, backed by impressive warehousing and logistical support, high-quality service and fast delivery, which we believe makes them an ideal distributor for Glue Dots.”
Jenny Hawkins, group sales and marketing director, said: “We work very closely with our resellers and manage our brands in a way that benefits both resellers and consumers. Glue Dots is also very complementary to our existing business and our customer base and we look forward to working with the team over the coming years.”
The appointment is part of Glue Dots plans to increase its distributor network in the UK and Europe and the company has also recently appointed Wilsons, in Colchester, to distribute the company’s growing range of DIY products.
