Print production and mailing house KPM Group has acquired Kent-based mailing house and digital printer TMB Mailing.
The acquisition marks a bold investment for KPM Group during the Covid-19 pandemic. While the deal was briefly paused as a result of lockdown earlier this year, KPM Group Founder and CEO Nigel Copp said now is the right time to push ahead, despite the current environment.
“It’s long been our intention to expand and growth through acquisition is a key strategy in our 5-year plan. Adding TMB Mailing to the group is a great fit and enables us to expand our current service offering and gain greater stability in uncertain times through consolidation. Mail’s reach and effectiveness continue to be demonstrated, so as we exit lockdown and businesses get back on track this will prove a great addition.”

KPM Group Managing Director Marian Lively said the synergy between the businesses was a key consideration; “As a business TMB are very similar to KPM having the same core strengths and values – a loyal client base, strong focus on service and an experienced team. This will enable us to continue to offer our group clients fast, efficient print and mailing solutions; while adding extra capacity to the mix.”
“In addition, we will roll out the TMB services of international postage consolidation, polywrap and pick and pack fulfilment to all group clients. The merged company will have revenue in excess of £6m so will be able to share the benefits of more efficient group buying and merged production operations.”
TMB Mailing operates from Borough Green, Kent, where its site includes 22,000 square feet of racked storage. With easy access to the M20 and M26, it’s just 20 minutes from KPM Group’s current factory.
Well established within the industry, TMB Mailing celebrated its 30 year anniversary in 2018. MD Mark Falconer will remain with the business.
