St George keeps Vac Rac in UK

English tackle distributor and wholesaler St George Sporting has acquired the Vac-Rac rod mount business, securing its position as a UK-based brand.

St George Sporting had always been a distributor of the vacuum rod racks and mounts but when company owner Patrick Laverty decided to sell up, the Northamptonshire-based firm stepped in to ensure it stayed in its home country.

Gareth Headland, St George Sporting’s managing director, explained: “Going forward, any customers who have bought direct from Vac-Rac will be able to continue to do so, mostly. We will continue to handle smaller amounts of Vac-Rac from here.”
