Global textile supplier and distributor to leading hotel brands across the world, Vision Support Services, has announced it has been acquired by US textile giant, WestPoint Home.
The deal presents a unified and dominant position for both companies in the hospitality sector and the Vision management team will look to accelerate the impressive rate of growth that they’ve already seen across Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Vision, founded in 2005, has grown an impressive client base and has become the preferred supplier for many of the leading hotel brands, as well as John Lewis & Partners in its Retail Division and the Ministry of Defence in its Government Division.
Boasting key customers such as Marriott, Hilton, IHG and Accor, the company will now focus on expanding these relationships into North America. Vision has a proven specialised skillset with the knowledge and ability to deliver individual brand standards in textiles. This includes a best in class global supply chain, with local sourcing offices across India, China, Pakistan and Turkey.
WestPoint Home is an American leader in the supply of fashion and home textiles to prominent retailers such as Ralph Lauren and JC Penney. WestPoint Home, like Vision, is also backed by over 200 years of manufacturing heritage with the brand being traced back to 1813.
Business as Usual
Vision would like to assure its customers that business is set to continue very much as usual; with no changes in the day-to-day operations of the business.
Managing director, Laurie Thomas, said: “This is a massive opportunity to grow with one of the world’s leading textile businesses and to make the combined business truly global in its supply and services.
The partnership is set to bring about an exciting time for Vision, and our loyal customers, and it’s an opportunity for our dedicated employees across our entire network, from China to Ireland, to develop further.”
The expanded business hopes to expand its sales footprint to the four corners of the globe; whilst keeping its quality textiles, unrivalled customer services and strict ethical sourcing policy at the forefront in order to meet customers exact brand standards and requirements.
Vision is proud to be sponsoring the LADA awards for 2019. As a world leading textile company, we’re experts in the sourcing and distribution of performance linens, favoured by hotels and laundries alike.
We are dedicated to working with some of the most prestigious laundries in the industry, and believe in the importance of celebrating the laundry and drycleaning industry as a whole, as well as the individuals across the sector whose efforts go above and beyond, each and every day.
