The Valley Group acquires CPI

I’m pleased to announce today that we’ve acquired the business of the CPI in the UK. From now on CPI will be known as Valley CPI and we’ll continue to service our current clients in the global luxury goods markets, but we’ll be operating out of CPI’s existing premises in Leicester.

My new friend Jan Wojciechowski is set to become the Managing Director of the new company, with Mike Fentem as Finance Director, joining myself and the other Valley Directors , Jonathan Haggas and David Williams on the new Board.

Valley was established over 118 years ago and we have grown to become a leading point of purchase specialist with impressive global operations.
