Creation of SATCoL Clothing Collection Division
Apr '12
The Boards of Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd (SATCoL) and Kettering Textiles Ltd (KT) are delighted to confirm that SATCoL has acquired KT, SATCoL's contractual operator of its clothing collection scheme.

This transaction does not affect the day to day running of the business but rather ensures continuity of service to all customers and suppliers. It is extremely positive for both SATCoL and KT, giving SATCoL total ownership of the clothing collection operation and thus improved profitability to provide a long term sustainable income stream to support The Salvation Army's charitable work with vulnerable and marginalised people in communities across the UK.

The decision to undertake this transaction was taken in the long term interest of employees, customers and suppliers. The deal safeguards all staff jobs whilst providing SATCoL with the long standing and vast management expertise of KT and its key wholesaler relationships.

In due course, all KT staff will move over to the SATCoL group, thus securing local employment in Wellingborough and Kettering. The acquisition will create a new wholly-owned division of SATCoL called the Salvation Army Clothing Collection Division, which will continue to benefit from the operational experience of KT.

All current KT Directors will remain involved in the business, employed by SATCoL for a minimum of two years to ensure a smooth handover of responsibilities.

The purchase of KT offers a unique opportunity for SATCoL to build on the success achieved by the clothing collection scheme over the past 21 years. The newly-formed SATCoL Clothing Collection Division will continue to operate to the highest standards in our service to customers and suppliers.
