Paul Varney, managing director at Blackrocks, said: “I am delighted to add Skins to our portfolio of performance brands. Skins is the market leader in compression, travel and recovery and we look forward to welcoming both existing and new stockist.

“Consumer demand is still high and with a new focus and clear message, the brand looks in great shape.”
