This UK company is a leading supplier of international branded consumer goods, working predominantly in the health and beauty sector and dealing with discounted surplus stock. The firm prides itself on its excellent customer service, competitive pricing and extensive product range. The company wishes to establish distribution agreements with wholesalers / distributors, import/export companies and retailers, to help its already fast-growing international sales increase even further.
Established in 1978, this family-owned UK company is a distributor of fast moving consumer goods (FMCGs) throughout the UK and in over 80 countries worldwide. The company focused originally on products in the health & beauty sector (bath and shower products, skincare, cosmetics etc), but recently it introduced new product categories such as grocery items, confectionery, drinks and pet care. Its extensive range now covers in excess of 4,500 product lines which are constantly being updated. With over 40 years of trading, the company has gained considerable experience and expertise which has allowed it to develop close and long-lasting relationships with leading manufacturers and brand owners across the globe. Its customers include retailers (including supermarkets and discount retail chains), internet retailers, wholesalers, distributors and import/export companies. They are serviced from the company’s purpose-built warehouse in the north of England, with approximately 19,500 m2 storage space. The company can deal with parcels of all types and sizes and, through its in-house contract packing team, it is able to re-label products with local languages or any other specific customer requests. The company is keen to build upon its recent strong export growth, for which it was recognised in 2015 with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. Therefore, it is seeking new distributors or others who are looking to source supplies of competitively priced (discounted price) branded FMCGs, for sale in their local markets. The company is committed to working with these partners, to grow sales for their mutual benefit.
