A TRUE SPECIALIST DISTRIBUTOR
What is a Distributor, there seems to be some confusion these days as to what is a true distributor in the UK.
A true distributor buys from the manufacturer in larger quantities and stocks the selection of products for resellers to offer them only the trade level prices. Not selling directly to the end users.
We say supporting the resellers and not supplying directly to the end user so you will not see end user testimonials on our website, the end user customers belong to you our customers. For us you the reseller come first, we are here to help you offer the best service for your customers. This means you get the trade reseller only pricing level so you can offer the most competitive prices to your customers. Our customers are those specialist resellers and partners now able to offer their customers much more than just the product.
A Specialist Distributor - as a Value Added Distributor we add the additional value of expertise and product advice, any associated other products, support, warranty, maintenance, setup, installation assistance and extra services for those specialist brands as required. The services like any product can be bought/sub contracted by our customers. We are an ISOQAR Registered ISO 9001 approved company with strict quality control procedures to ensure we offer the most efficient service and carry all protective highest level insurances for required and the appropriate liabilities. We offer generous credit terms subject to status and can supply internationally.
Become an authorised reseller and we can offer you registration, training and support so you can offer your customers the best price and services for our leading brands
