JMT Leather merges with Crest Leather in the UK

Dear Customer

We are writing to thank you for choosing to purchase from JMT Leather in 2009. I am sure you will agree it has been a challenging year all round.

As with many other industries the leather sector has been dramatically affected by fluctuations in raw material prices and the drastic negative effect of the strong Euro.

In order to meet the challenges of 2010 whilst remaining competitive we have had to seriously consider how to reduce overheads while at the same time retaining our status as market leader.

We are therefore delighted to inform you that with effect from the 1st February 2010 we shall be merging our UK business with our major competitor, Crest Leather Ltd, to form a new company to be called CRESTJMT Limited.

The new venture will operate from Crest’s existing facility in Rochdale and you will be able to place orders on 0845 612 1125 or by e.mail at sales(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)

The sales team will comprise of our own Liz Cleverdon and Andrew Young who will be joined by Ian Graham and Tahera Hussain from Crest and together they will be able to offer you the most comprehensive range of leather available from any manufacturer in Europe. I will be the new company’s managing director and my partner John Heinrich will be joining the board.

Over the coming months the sales team will contact you to introduce themselves, discuss your requirements and explain the benefits that this new project will bring to your business.

If you have any questions or require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

In the meantime we wish you a very successful new year in 2010.

Yours sincerely
Tony Clayton
