Phil commented: “I am delighted to be joining the business at such an exciting time for the company. The commitment to incorporating a UK & Ireland subsidiary is a clear reflection of Plus-Plus’ ambition to build a long-term brand in partnership with our retail customers. The high-quality values of the Plus-Plus brand, new product development and commitment to marketing should enable us to build an evergreen presence in the UK & Ireland. We are very much looking forward to launching the brand, recruiting a new team and sharing our 2023 plans at London Toy Fair, Nuremberg and Birmingham Spring Fair.”
