‘STANDS ABOVE THE REST’ - The history of 'Leeds Display'
In 1973, Cabinet Exports based in Leeds approached William Beckett Plastics in Sheffield to manufacture the first range of 4” & 7” Classic Stands .Other sizes and styles of plate display stands were added to the range and were shown at the first ever exhibition at the Spring Fair NEC, in 1976.
Soon afterwards its name was changed to ‘Leeds Giftware’ and stayed the same until taken over by William Beckett Plastics in 1992 and moved to Sheffield. It duly underwent a complete rebranding to become ‘LEEDS DISPLAY’ , as it is still known today, with the range of display stands and accessories expanded significantly.
In 2016, Richard Beckett, (the son of the founder of William
Beckett Plastics), acquired LEEDS DISPLAY through his own company ‘GEMOLADE LTD'. With his team, they continue to serve a global market with the most extensive range of
display stands produced in Europe; including the traditional Classic Stands,
Modern Stands, Cup & Saucer Stands, the versatile adjustable Multi-Stands,
fixed and adjustable Plate Racks, Clip-Stands and
the reliable range of wire plate hangers and adhesive Disc Hangers.
