The corporate group is responding to the continuing increase in demand for individually designed face masks with a wider range of products.
Seven months after the introduction of face masks to the product range, 10,000 masks have been sold in Europe and Spread Group is taking stock. According to Maxie Eck, Spread Group’s Teamlead for Consumer Marketing, the high demand for face masks cannot be attributed solely to legal requirements and concerns about infection. A look at the most popular mask designs, cat motifs, colourful patterns and slogans, shows that customers want to raise positivity to counter a difficult time
We are celebrating our company’s anniversary: Our corporate group was founded as the student start-up “Spreadshirt” by Lukasz Gadowski and Matthias Spiess in 2002. Since then, we have grown to five internationally operating e-commerce platforms: Spreadshirt Create Your Own, Spreadshirt Marketplace, Spreadshop, TeamShirts and SPOD (Spreadshirt Print-on-Demand).
“We can be very proud of we have achieved together over the past 18 years. Spread Group has beaten many better funded businesses to become the only true international PoD market leader by focusing on what is important for the customer and by having an excellent team. We will continue to focus on product and business model innovations in the future,” says Philip Rooke, CEO of Spread Group.
Under the website TeamShirts.com, Spread Group now offers a Print-on-Demand (PoD) platform for the North American market, which is specially tailored to the needs of group orders. The new online offer is based on the e-commerce platform TeamShirts.de, which has been available to European customers since 2014.
After the market entry of the spin-off SPOD (Spreadshirt Print-on-Demand) in Europe, Spread Group has now reached another milestone in its expansion strategy. TeamShirts, the all-in-one solution for group orders, was successfully launched on the US market. Both brand launches clearly follow the multi-brand approach of promoting, strategically building and adapting high-turnover business areas within the group for different target markets.
