From Coronation Street to Toilet Cubicles

Mark Simpkin Limited was launched in 2001 supplying lockers to schools, high street supermarkets and major industrial users. Mark combined running his business with his passion to work in the media sector. He enjoyed success playing Craig Brennan in Coronation Street which led to a several high profile presenting jobs including GMTV, Manchester United Television, BBC1’s Holiday programme, This Morning and ITV1’s highly rated daytime property programme ‘I want that house’

In 2003, Mark married Heartbeat actress Tricia Penrose [who he met interviewing her at the National Television Awards] with his first son Jake being born soon after. At this time, Mark realised that being away from home filming was now not so glamorous and turned down several large TV contracts to enjoy his family and concentrate on building his business.

2004 saw Mark Simpkin Limited re-branded as The Simply Group allowing each of areas of his business to be split up into product divisions

Simply Lockers offers the largest range of lockers in Europe. Supplying both the trade and end users lockers are manufactured in steel, wood, solid grade laminate, plastic and stainless steel. It has an extremely strong client list which includes Sainsbury’s, Boots, Westfield Shopping Centres and Pepsi.

Simply Media Management has produced and distributed Tricia Penrose’s ‘60’s’ CD helping to raise money for Comic Relief. In 2007 the Tricia Penrose jewellery range was launched and is now exclusive to Ocean Village Cruises and more recently saw the successful release of ‘The Tricia Penrose before and after body blitz’. This division also looks after the Media side of both Mark’s and Tricia’s career.

Simply Tables and Chairs sell a wide range of products designed specifically for the commercial sector. Products include café style furniture, banquet chairs and fast food style seating - which are becoming increasingly popular in both the construction and education market.

Simply Smoking Shelters took advantage of the smoking ban back in 2006 to create a range of shelters to suit all requirements and budgets.

Simply Cycle Shelters offers a solution to the safe storage of bikes. Whether it is a school, supermarket or office block, Simply Cycle shelters are designed to store either a small or large quantity of bikes.

NEW FOR 2009

2009 sees the launch of Simply Cubicles and Simply Bench Seating. Having built up strong relationships supplying lockers to clients through architects and building contractors, the Simply Group has been encouraged to offer a complete changing/washroom package by offering a new range toilet and shower cubicles [including duct panels and vanity units] and changing room bench seating. These additional products complement the locker range and allow a one stop total fit out for offices, schools, leisure centres and factory changing rooms.
