The family continues to grow


As we all prepare to welcome the jolly old man in a bright red suit to our homes, we at West Design are also excited to welcome and announce a new member to the West family, Docrafts. The craft supplier, based in Dorset, has an enviable reputation for innovation and creativity.

Natalie Galvin, CEO of Docrafts, said “I am delighted at the opportunities offered by the link to West Design. Their manufacturing capability in Plymouth provides us with the flexibility to bring new products to market within a short time span and gives a new dimension to our business.”

West Design, with its HQ and distribution centre in Folkestone, has a history of successful acquisitions and through its distributorship of key premium brands such as Faber-Castell, Copic, Marabu and Creativity for Kids it is a leading supplier of art, craft, toy and stationery products.

Jo Bray, joint MD of West Design said “We are very pleased to announce this acquisition which strengthens our position in the hobby and craft market."

The enlarged Group will employ over 200 people and generate combined annual revenues of over £30M.

We are very excited by this new opportunity and look forward to working together in the future.

We would also like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and
a Happy New Year!
