It's full steam ahead for busy Trends UK, with the firm moving its sales and marketing operation into new premises as it continues with its growth plans.

The new offices are based in Banbury, while the accounting department remains in Didcot.

In addition, Wow Wee/Sablon UK will also be operating out of the same premises. The two business, while operating as separate units, will share resources and explore distribution opportunities together.

Lee Clowes, MD of Trends UK, said: "The timing of the relocation makes sound commercial sense from both a practical and operational point of view, in light of recent management changes and a sustained plan for growth."

New Trends UK sales director, Graham Spark, added: "The opportunity for Trends UK and Wow Wee to work under one roof seemed a logical partnership, for both companies. I look forward to working in my new capacity at Trends UK while maintaining continuity with the Wow Wee portfolio."
