Gemma International has detailed its plans to bring independent sales back to the forefront of its business with a realigned sales strategy.

It follows the successful launch of the Studio by Gemma range and the recent decision made to seek distribution outside of the Carte Blanche Group.

“We have never taken our focus away from our independent customers and with the very positive response we have had to Studio By Gemma, we feel the time is right to bring sales and distribution to the independent sector back into the heart of Gemma,” said managing director, Amanda Parkin.

“We are a business that originated from my parent’s vision some 30 years ago to offer outstanding products to the independent specialist sector and w understand what independents require in terms of exceptional differentiated product and great customer service.”

Gemma International will be working with Carte Blanche over the next few weeks to ensure a smooth handover and states that it will be in touch with customers shortly.

Gemma has already become a new member of Cardgains and will continue its ongoing relationship with Toymaster.

In the meantime, Gemma’s customers service team is on hand to help with any queries. Contact orders@gemma-international.co.uk
