Mary Spencers Personal Financial Plan is not just a manufacturer of adhesives but enjoys market management in the instant adhesive market. The business has its own experienced and certified sales force which adds value to sales by training the business's network of 250 suppliers for helping with the sale of adhesives.

While we are looking at the strengths of Mary Spencers Personal Financial Plan, it is important to highlight the company's weaknesses.
