Spanish deal cements European expansion for Gala Tent

A manufacturer of marquees and gazebos has established its tenth European distributorship in Spain.

Rotherham based Gala Tent will supply to Spanish events company, BC Carpas which has bases in both Barcelona and Madrid.

As an official Gala Tent distributor, BC-Carpas will have the full support of the award winning parent business to establish the new products and market them to their full potential..

European distributors of Gala Tent products are each  provided with a complete bespoke back office system, designed and used in-house at Gala Tent’s main UK office. Additionally new distributors are provided with a wealth of marketing support and guides to ensure that all aspects from public interaction to analytical tracking are covered.

The exclusive deal was facilitated by Gala Tent’s International Sales Director, Martin Blacksell in response to rising demand across Europe for the company’s products. Similarly to Gala Tent, BC Carpas is a family run business with a 35 year history in the events industry.

Gala Tent has exclusive distributors in Ireland, Jersey, Czech Republic, Germany, Slovenia, Belgium, Malta, Netherlands, France and now Spain. Gala Tent’s expansion plans are currently targeted within Europe however growing demand in the US could mean a possible expansion into other continents.

Managing director Jason Mace said: “We’re delighted to welcome BC Carpas to the Gala Tent family.

“Over the past three years we have seen a considerable increase in customers looking to order our products for delivery throughout Europe and decided that a programme of exclusive distributorships would be an ideal way to serve that market.

Last year Gala Tent achieved a 12 per cent growth in turnover, this year we’re aiming for a 30 per cent growth with European expansion playing a key role in achieving our target.”
