QS Network News – New ownership for Martin Luck Group secures future growth

mlgFollowing the recent retirement of their Chairman, Plymouth and Helston based business supplies specialists, Martin Luck Group, have become part of Complete Office Solutions (COS) Group. Both sites will remain as regional sales and distribution centres, which is very much a part of COS’s five year expansion strategy. 

Richard Coulson, COS’s CEO, commented: “We are extremely pleased with the acquisition. Martin Luck Group fits perfectly into our nationwide model, with the Helston and Plymouth sites being of strategic value in our plans.”

He concluded “We intend to expand both organically and through further acquisition across the UK. We are supremely focused on establishing a nationwide network of hubs, maintaining local stock holding, providing local employment, and increasing our buying power to guarantee our competitiveness”.

Clearly taking pride in his success in building a team of specialists providing a single trusted source for a broad range of business services and products including furniture, print, stationery, and workwear, Martin Luck Group’s Managing Director, Tim Yorke-Dunne reported yet another record year for growth. He said, “Becoming part of Complete Office Solutions comes at a fantastic time for us. This will secure our continued growth and allow us to further evolve our product and service offering to our clients. We began diversifying into branded clothing, janitorial and catering supplies almost 4 years ago, and this has resulted in delivering significant cost savings to our clients, whilst ensuring profitable growth for us. I’m sure that the next era in our 34 years of trading will allow us to further expand our local workforce in the coming months and years”.
