Distributor Fluid Branding, headquartered in Leeds, UK, has furthered its international expansion with the opening of an office in Malta. The Maltese location adds to its eight sales offices in the UK and continental Europe.

“We identified the need to service our existing clients and to further grow our portfolio internationally, so after our opening offices in Amsterdam and Dublin, we’d been looking at the options for our next logical step,” says Fluid’s Managing Director Miles Lovegrove. “Malta allows us to service a growing client base we have there, and further European offices for the company are likely to follow.”

The company’s continued expansion follows being named the BPMA Distributor of the Year for the second year running and Sourcing City’s Distributor of the Year for the third consecutive year. The company also won Feefo’s Gold Trusted Service Award for the fourth year in a row. This award is given to companies who have maintained consistently high-scoring customer reviews.

“We’re absolutely at the top of our game right now,” says CEO Matt Franks. “We’ve seen 40 percent year-on-year growth for the last five years, and 2019 is set to be our best yet. The team is now 90 people strong and is brimming with experience and ambition. We’ve got such a strong and dynamic culture at Fluid and we’re proud to be serving some fantastic brands such as Google, Sky Sports, Netflix, Disney and HSBC. The pleasing thing is that we’ve delivered consistent growth while maintaining our integrity and values, and a real passion to do business ‘the right way’. I guess that’s why we’ve picked up the recent awards which were voted for by our peers. This ethos and the strength of our team and our technology has and will always be critical for our success.”
