It has six product categories: Audio; Heating and Cooling; Housewares; Laundry; Luggage; and Small Domestic Appliances.
Brands include Beldray (laundry, floor care, heating and cooling), intempo (audio), Salter (kitchenware), Constellation (luggage), and Progress (cookware and bakeware). Major customers include Action, Aldi, Amazon, Argos, Asda, B&M, Matalan, Morrisons, Original Factory Shop, Robert Dyas, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and The Range.
Andrew Gossage, managing director of Ultimate Products, said: “Powerscourt impressed us with its experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm for our sector. We wanted an agency that could provide us with comprehensive financial and corporate PR support, as well as being able to provide strategic communications counsel as we transition to life as a listed company. We are delighted to have them on board, and look forward to working with them as we carry out our ambitious growth strategy.”
