The UK’s market-leading pump-top promotions company DSL has become a patron of East Midlands Chamber.
The Chamber’s patrons’ scheme is aimed at businesses which want to take a leading role in the local business community. Chamber patrons are influential and prominent organisations which share the values that drive the Chamber forward.
Established in 1983, in Nottingham, DSL is the largest company within its sector. It supplies more major oil companies, independent petrol retailers and other retail outlets throughout the UK and Ireland than anyone else in its industry. Its customers include Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Co-op and the Motor Fuel Group, which comprises the BP, Shell, Texaco and JET fuel brands.
It has strengthened its position by collaborating with household names such as AA, Parker, Kodak, Disney, Marvel, Battersea Cats and Dogs Home and many others, to bring their officially-licensed products to market.
Peter Landa, DSL’s Managing Director, said: “DSL is firmly rooted in Nottingham and has a strong presence across the East Midlands, so we are delighted to become patrons of the Chamber and give something back to the local and regional business communities.
“The Chamber plays a key role in supporting local businesses in their efforts to create jobs and drive the regional economy forwards and we are pleased to be in the position to share some of our own experience and expertise to help our fellow businesses achieve success.”
DSL holds exclusive distribution rights to multiCIG, the fastest-growing e-cigarette brand in the UK, and has interests in document storage through its Docubank division, a vast portfolio of commercial and residential property and specialises in providing premium serviced office space via its Charterspace arm.
Chamber Chief Executive Scott Knowles said: “I am delighted to welcome DSL on board as a Chamber patron. It will bring to the Chamber skills and expertise to complement those of the other Chamber Patrons to evolve something which is, together, greater than the sum of its parts.
“Chamber Patrons are a powerful force in influencing policy, driving economic growth and development and equipping smaller businesses with the knowledge and skills that are vital to their future.”
The Chamber currently has 24 patrons, including DHL Express, East Midlands Airport, Experian, The Money Shop, Wilko and Santander.
