Our Director Nick is always looking out for new opportunities, from growing his main business Supplies for Candles to developing our Sister Company The Soap Kitchen, he's excited to announce another exciting acquisition that he recently completed, adding a third new business to his portfolio.

This acquisition will allow Supplies For Candles to expand into a well-established glass printing business, providing our customer base with even more choice and personalisation when it comes to their candle and home fragrance collections.
With the acquisition of this new business also comes much-needed space, with an additional 20,000 square foot warehouse. The new warehouse means that we can now provide a whole host of new products.
This strategic acquisition will cement Supplies for Candles as the leading candle making supplies company in Europe allowing us to have the largest range of containers, candle holders and much more!
