Quotes

So what should customers expect from the new Millbrook? Says Burns: "You can expect to see a broader service, with an increased emphasis on customer service. Ultimately, I want people to see Millbrook as an enabler – enabling our customers to arrive at the best possible end product."
Nick Morrill of Rutland, said: "We are delighted to be able to invest in Maplin and recognise the great progress made by management so far in the recovery of the business but more importantly the potential still to be unlocked."
James Stirling of Investec says: "Maplin's offering is unique on the high street and consistently scores highly for customer satisfaction.  Under John Cleland's leadership and Rutland's ownership it has a great opportunity to build an exciting future.  Investec is very pleased to be part of the next chapter in Maplin's story."
Retiring Maplin chairman John Lovering said: "Maplin has been a long term investment for Montagu. They managed the business carefully and prudently through the recession, maximising cash flow and emerging in a post-Lehman world as a deleveraged survivor."
