Get Trendy: On trend styles to look out for in SDA at Spring Fair

With Spring Fair fast approaching and many of our customers out on the hunt for fresh new products to add to their repertoire; we thought it best to give you a crash course on the colours and styles to look out for in SDA this season.

Following on from last year’s go to colour of a chic and minimalist grey; this season neutral tones such as creams, warm grey, black and white continue to lead the way as the core colours consumers are looking for in SDA for their homes. Think the Russell Hobbs Inspire Collection, the Breville Flow Collection or the Beko Retro Microwaves for example. Classic but on trend; so if you’re some styling tips for your store pair your neutral coloured SDA’s with warm, rustic, neutral colours such as mint, pistachio and sage greens, mustard yellows and soft coppery browns.

For those looking to add a pop of colour to their in-store and window displays, have no fear its not all neutral and minimalist. With retro styles making a comeback in the last few years so are richer, luxurious colours, such as royal blues and deep ruby reds and metallic and chrome finishes. Think the Crux range for brushed stainless steel with copper accents and the Tefal Steam Generator Irons that come in a range of luxe colours.

To find out more about this season’s SDA trends, come and visit our stand and talk to our team at Spring Fair at the NEC Birmingham from the 1st – 6th February. To become a stockist of any products mentioned above and more email: sales@epeinternational.com or call 0844 800 8055.

EPE Brand Partner Beko’s MD talks innovation, sustainability & the Cosmopolis range with ERT

EPE’s strategic brand partner Beko’s Managing Director Teresa Arbuckle sat down with ERT magazine to talk about the importance of innovation and sustainability in the future of Beko and introducing the Beko Cosmopolis breakfast range to the SDA market at the end of last year.

Teresa reflected on 2019 as a whole being a prosperous one for Beko; as they launched many new products, won several awards and launched a training programme to help educate independent retailers with product knowledge and advice to help them educate their customers.

She also spoke of highly of Beko’s new SDA range and had this to say on the launch:

“…We recently launched the Beko Cosmopolis range which has a beautiful retro look, and that’s in stores now and has been getting a lot of attention. There are some great colours and finishes, really on trend, so we’ve got high hopes for this range and we’re going to be introducing more ranges in the future too.”

– Beko MD Teresa Arbuckle on the Cosmopolis range

Further investment in people and teams within EPE is big part of our growth plan for 2020 and I look forward to welcoming the newest addition of our regional sales team in Scotland very soon.

A message from our Sales Director: Euronics Derbyshire Group Meeting

Yesterday I attended the Euronics regional group meeting in Derbyshire with one of our Regional Sales Managers Simon Dawson.

There was a great turnout of the Euronics group members attending the meeting. During my presentation, I had the chance to speak to them about EPE and drive home our focus this year on how we are supporting our independent retailers and buying group members further; giving them a full insight into everything we can offer them, when they work with us.

Simon also delivered a great presentation about our products, the SDA market and how bringing quality, branded SDA to our customer base at the heart of what we do.

The overall environment was very open and positive and a number of the members were keen to schedule meetings with Simon to discuss working with us over the coming weeks.

I look forward to attending many more of the regional meetings across the UK in the coming months and meeting more of our buying group members.

EPE’s Vicki Mitchell raises money for Macmillan Cancer Charity with Brave the Shave

Earlier this month, EPE’s Vicki Mitchell, Warehouse Operative participated in Brave the Shave to raise money for the Macmillan Cancer charity.

Vicki decided on Brave The Shave for the charity as a way to thank Macmillan for all they do to support, not only those suffering with cancer, but their families too.  Vicki herself experienced the help the charity provides when her own family members had cancer and this helped drive her desire to give back and raise money for MacMillan through Brave the Shave.

Vicki raised over £375 for Macmillan through sponsors and we at EPE are happy to have supported her in raising money for such a well-deserving charity.
