Blakemore is on the up, with a strategy to more than double the size of its Wholesale Distribution arm, relaunch its online ordering platform and kick off a recruitment drive for its expanding symbol group package. After a strong start to the financial year, with pre-tax profits up 18.5%, Blakemore also plans to reinvest 98% of those profits back into the business.
