Ignite announce a further expansion to the group with the addition of two new companies: Redrok with offices in Plymouth and Exeter and JDR Branding in Birmingham.

Richard Pettinger commented: “Ignite are delighted to welcome Redrok to the group. Redrok are a long established well respected member of our industry and will continue to add quality and depth to our group.”

David Williams, Managing Director of Redrok added: “My staff have been pushing me to look at the Ignite catalogue for some time now. I met with Richard at Sourcing City Market Place and decided to join a group that we recognised as the right fit for us as a growing business. We look forward to the new catalogue in August.”

JDR Branding is a new business set up by two industry stalwarts Dawn Rogers and Julie Rogers.

Richard Pettinger commented: “Ignite would not normally take on start-ups, but in this case, with the wealth of experience brought by these two industry professionals it was an easy decision to make. We are delighted to welcome Dawn and Julie to our group and hope we can work with them to help their business become the success it surely will be.”

Dawn Rogers added: “In starting a new business we needed a good catalogue and website, but also felt being part of a group would help us on our way. Having checked the market thoroughly we felt the Ignite Group was the right partner for our business. They delivered a website for us within days to get us up and running, they have also listened to our requests, delivering a quick and efficient support service.We are looking forward to the new catalogue launch in August.”

Commenting on recent events, Richard Pettinger said: “2017 has been an extraordinary year with numerous applications to join us. Sadly, we cannot take everyone. With three more applications pending we feel we have now reached our optimum size. With such a distinctive catalogue, we do not want to flood the market.”
