SJD Sports International is a specialist company involved in the manufacture of bespoke sports hall equipment and installations including sports netting, rebound walls, basketball goals and trampoline parks.
The acquisition means Sportsafe UK will have an expanded manufacturing capability, access to a wider UK network of engineers and will continue to be the one-stop shop for its customers, developers, and architects.
Jonathan Neill, MD at Sportsafe said “We are delighted to have negotiated the acquisition of SJD Sports International. Stewart and I have known and worked with each other for many years and I see this as a huge step forward for the future of Sportsafe. We will be welcoming all of the existing SJD Sports International staff into the Sportsafe team, and in fact, will be expanding this new division of Sportsafe which we expect to grow and become a major division of the company.”
It is an exciting time for Sportsafe with many new innovations coming to the market in the leisure industry, along with our opening up of new export markets, the development of Outdoor Spaces and our growth within the Trampoline Park sector.
Stewart Dennerly, Director of SJD Sports International added “We’ve been working on joint projects for over five years now but with the recent Trampoline Park installation in Hull it became apparent that this was the future for both companies. I will lead the Installation division at Sportsafe and I am looking forward to being a part of this exciting development.”
Sportsafe has secured a Ninja Park construction for the summer and is currently in negotiation on four new trampoline parks which will keep the Installation team very busy.
This is the third new division for Sportsafe in the last 18 months with Branded Teamwear opening in April 2015, Outdoor Spaces launched in March this year and now Sportsafe Installations.
There are other expansions on the horizon at Sportsafe including international offices in Germany, Australia, and the Middle East within the next two years.
