UK-based retail gift and presentation packaging specialist Professional Packaging Services (PPS) has been acquired by InnerWorkings of Chicago, USA.
A leading global marketing supply chain company, InnerWorkings uses its proprietary technology and “extensive” supplier network to procure, manage and deliver printed materials and promotional products for corporate clients across a wide range of industries.
InnerWorkings says its expertise lies in the executional stages of marketing materials: “Our end-to-end solution expertly integrates and streamlines sourcing, production and execution across all of your marketing materials,” the company says.
Founded by Brian Bell in 1979 in Yorkshire, England, Professional Packaging Services was purchased by his son Simon Bell in 2007.
“I have no doubt that both companies will benefit greatly from each other’s expertise, global contacts and worldwide manufacturing network,” says Simon Bell.
“Although we will be operating under the InnerWorkings banner, I can assure clients it will be business as usual.”
PPS is a leading company in global brand and gift packaging, providing clients such as Boots, Harrods, Bollinger, Edrington and Thorntons with unique constructional ideas, graphic design, worldwide sourcing, assembly, and project management.
