Kudos Shower Products have announced the acquisition of Northern Ireland based shower tray manufacturer Spa-Jet Ltd.

Kudos founder and Chairman Bruce Ledwith explained the rationale behind the acquisition: “As a leading manufacturer of shower enclosures we can clearly see the opportunity to grow our presence in the shower tray market. We have dealt with Spa -Jet for some time and have developed a fantastic relationship with their management team based on our shared values of quality and service. This acquisition will enable us to offer Kudos customers an enhanced range of shower trays at more competitive prices whilst maintaining our commitment to manufacturing in the UK”.

Kudos Managing Director, Sue Moul added, “We have been developing what we believe to be a revolution in shower tray design and the Spa-Jet acquisition adds to our skill base that will speed up the process of bringing this to market”. Sue added “We have invested heavily in new tooling and new facilities at our base in Cumbria, with an additional 30,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing capability coming on stream early in 2017, bringing our total capacity, including the Spa-Jet facility in Coleraine, to over 140,000 sq ft. This significant investment demonstrates our confidence in the future prospects for Kudos and our continued commitment to delivering a broad range of high-quality British-made products to our customers and to supporting our local communities with increased employment.”

Spa-Jet’s founder Eric Mckay will take a step back from day to day activities but will remain an adviser to the company and the wider Kudos Group. Spa-Jet’s M.D, Richard McKay will be responsible for production whilst maintaining and developing sales of the Spa-Jet brand throughout Ireland. Richard commented, “This is a great opportunity for Spa-jet to secure its future as a manufacturer of quality products here in Coleraine, supported by the resources of Kudos. I am really excited about the opportunity this brings, not just for myself but for all the loyal staff who have helped us to achieve our strong reputation and success to date”
