HMA’s origins date back to 1972, when the company was called Hurst Son & Partners Ltd, specialising in publishing diaries and calendars for Harrods. Alan Morris, successful in his own right as ex-Marketing Director of Bostik and a leading force behind the launch of Blu Tack, joined Peter Hurst in 1992 when the company was re-named Hurst Morris Associates Ltd. Peter’s printing and management background combined with Alan’s marketing experience, created a potent concoction of creativity, technical expertise and the company’s expansion snowballed.
The company became known for offering a wide range of exclusively designed branded promotional merchandise. In 1998 our Far East sourcing grew dramatically as we became involved in the covermount industry. And very soon we moved into a purpose built site in Aylesbury offering spacious office space and a large warehouse. The company re-branded it’s trading name as HMA Creative in 2002.
The drinks side of our business started in 2006 and from that our thirst for innovation has grown.
Today we continue to expand our range of services into new sectors of the promotional market and our passion for innovative design across global brand names will always differentiate us from our competition.
