“Sapa Profiles UK has been a key Downton client for over six years,” said Andy Downton, managing director of Downton. “It is a successful partnership that has strengthened with every passing year. We are extremely pleased to be continuing and extending the contract, and look forward to working with Sapa for many years to come.”

Yann Beck, managing director of Sapa Profiles UK Ltd, said:

“The Downton team has continually delivered an exceptional service where they are often the face of our business when the customer is in receipt of goods. The dynamic relationship and shared business knowledge gives us the confidence that our logistics operation is in the right hands.”
