News: Gala Tent acquire Print Day for new print division


Graphic design and print business Print Day, based in Barnsley, has been acquired by Rotherham-based Gala Tent, one of the UK's leading manufacturers of marquees and gazebos, and has relocated to Gala Tent's premises at Manvers.

The agreement will see Gala Tent investing £50k in new printing equipment, as part of expanding its custom branded and printing services to customers. Print Day specialises in the design and print for quality brochures, cards, banners, feather flags and exhibition displays.

This latest acquisition comes just six months since Gala Tent acquired 50% of the business of Rotherham company Sign Man, a wide format digital printing business which has enabled Gala Tent to enhance its custom printed service and increase orders by over 100 per cent. By merging with Print Day, Gala Tent and Sign Man plan to cover more areas of printing and design, producing products such as brochures, banners and exhibition displays.

Jason Mace, managing director of Gala Tent (pictured, far right), said: "By bringing Print Day into our business, we will be able to offer our customers a wider range of high quality printed products. Print Day has a wealth of experience in the industry and we are confident that together we will be able to offer customers an even greater choice of branded and printed solutions, in addition to our core business of marquees and gazebos.

"We are looking forward to seeing the print side of our business grow and develop in the future, which should lead to a number of new jobs being created within the area."

Martin Popplestone, managing director of Print Day (pictured, centre), added: "Print Day is the perfect fit with Gala Tent and Sign Man, and our expertise in graphic design and print will enable us to produce high quality branded goods as an added service to Gala Tent's customers. I am looking forward to helping the Gala Tent team to grow our business significantly over the coming months."

Glen Robinson, who was previously printing manager for Gala Tent, will be promoted to head up the new print business, based at Manvers. As part of the company's ongoing programme of investment and improvement, Gala Tent plan to move Print Day and Sign Man to another one of their premises at Park Spring, Grimethorpe, in August this year.
