BSL sells Mod-Style

The Brotherhood of St Laurence is pleased to announce that the sale of the Mod-Style business has taken place, with the handover to the new owners commencing July 29 2011.

The new owners, the De Grandi Group, plan to continue business under the Mod-Style name, but in a revitalised manner. They will take on the full range of Mod-Style brands including the very successful, Building Better Lives stands.

The new owners are currently undertaking a review to consider current and future staff requirements, with the view of filling any gaps in their structure with existing Mod-Style Staff. Mod-Style staff will be contacted over the next few days to discuss potential employment opportunities.
