Leicester firm to create 60 jobs in the US

The US arm of Leicester-based promotional merchandising company EverythingBranded has revealed it is to open a west coast office creating over 60 jobs.

The firm says that after its launch in the east coast in January 2017, the USA brand from the Charles Alexander Distribution Group firm has “exceeded expectations in all departments”.

The expansions will increase the USA account managing team from near 40 to over 100 by the end of 2018 as the USA brand looks at growing nationally.

Paul Rowlett, chief executive of Charles Alexander Distribution, said: “We had high hopes for our USA brand in 2017 and knowing how hard our team worked in 2017 it’s great to know we surpassed targets in all areas.

“We have now invested in larger dedicated offices for the USA brand and look forward to go national in 2018. Even though we are still new to the USA market we have built some amazing relationships with our suppliers and I would like to say a huge thank you as your support has been faultless. We look forward to seeing many of you at PPAi in January.”

Charles Alexander Distribution made the news last month when it took 14,000 sq ft of office space in Peat House in Leicester.
