Card Connection becomes part of UK Greetings Ltd

Card Connection, a leading greeting card publisher and franchisor in the UK and Ireland, has announced that it became part of UK Greetings Limited on 26th March 2008. According to the information provided UK Greetings is the British subsidiary of American Greetings Inc AG. It is the world’s largest publicly owned greeting card company and the largest direct to retail greeting card publisher in the UK.

Robina Every, managing director of Card Connection, commented on this move saying “We believe that UKG represents a very strong partner for the Card Connection business and we are confident that we can develop sales and profitability by increasing our share and penetration of the card market. Our excellent track record of servicing retailers using the Card Connection franchisee network, will be enhanced significantly by the addition of UKG’s resources.”

Card Connection is to be run as an independent division of UKG with its own unique product range exclusive to the franchisees. Three new directors from UKG are to join Card Connection’s main board and the company is to continue to be run by the existing management team. According to Robina Every, it will be ‘business as usual’ for Card Connection’s customers and franchisees.
