Roy Kirkham is quite a surprising company, family owned and based in Stoke on Trent and still manufactures the majority of its products in Stoke.
The company has a massive export business supplying many overseas distributors and major international department store chains as well manufacturing for famous brand stores in the UK.
Now the company want to expand in to the independent retailer with their own names brand and designs. Recently gaining the licence to work with the RSPB alongside the advertising campaign for “Giving nature a home” bringing to the market a traditional theme on the mugs. This builds on the success of working with David Austin Roses as well as designers such as Nina Campbell.
For me the range sits in the traditional market which is more suited for the traditional gift shop, cook shop and department store.
Roy Kirkham has recently invested in an expansion of its production site here in the UK, which has resulted in employing more people to produce all of its products at the Stoke factory. When I call on some shops for the first time and show the brochure, they flick through the pages and say ” We have lots of mugs, then I show the samples, they all agree with out fail that the quality is second to none! normally they place an order!”
Carriage Paid orders are £ 295.00 with a minimum order value of £ 295.00.
A new merchandiser unit is being worked on and should be available very soon.
Again like my other agencies, lovely people to deal with but allow 4 weeks for delivery.
