Vink UK taking over the world of signs?

Ordered a few supplies today and I am starting to think Vink UK are taking over the world (of signs). Ordered some VHB tapes and primers from Self adhesive supplies.co.uk - paid in voice arrives head office Vink UK, ordered some custom size 10mm flame polished acrylic online from sheet plastics , invoice arrives Vink UK. Amari plastics owned by Vink UK, Vink Lighting you guessed it Vink UK! Seems they own a lot of companies!! Would be a lot easier to contact / pay one company for all the purchases and have one delivery!

They own Europoint too.

It does boggle the mind, that you can have Amari reps coming in competing against Europoint, both owned VINK.

I've quizzed Andy, our rep about this, both are run independently.

It may be a good thing for us the buyer as they sell the same products, meaning they can only compete on price and service.

The industry has changed, where the used to be exclusive suppliers of Oracal, 3M, Avery, it's readily available from multiple suppliers now.

Re: Vink UK taking over the world of signs

I just found this out too David and had to ask the girl to repeat what she had just said.

We had a “payment issue” and it turned out we had actually paid Europoint but the world pay was saying Armani and of course, didn’t match the Armani amount.

I wonder how many people call a year moaning about the other.. it’s likely moaning to one twin about the other twin, not knowing they have a twin. *shrugs*

And what happens in the board room of vink. “Well done folks, Armani sales are up by 20%, europoint are down by 17% though so you all sacked”....

All jokes aside am guessing this happened when Europoint went under. If our local competitors went under and I purchased them I would most likely keep the name, providing it’s reputation was good enough.

Perhaps if Vink are reading this a discount for The forum for all this great exposure?
