EPE GROUP, the UK’s leading distributor of branded small domestic appliances, has made two key appointments as it looks to grow its business across All Ireland.

Jody Hughes, who has more than 25 years experience in the electrical industry, has joined Bradford-based EPE Group as its regional sales manager. Steve Morrin, EPE Group’s trading director, has worked for a number of companies in the Irish market over the past two decades.

Geoff Eden, EPE Group’s sales director, said that the company is looking to add cook shops and hardware stores, as well as independent and multiple electrical retailers and electrical buying group to its network across the island of Ireland.

Mr Eden said: “The SDA market is outperforming the other electrical categories, driven by premium, branded products.”

EPE Group, which operates from a 50,000 square feet warehouse in West Yorkshire, is the exclusive UK distributor for a number of SDA brands including AEG, Kärcher and Philips.

Harry Singh, EPE’s Group’s investment and marketing director, said: “With a strong portfolio of branded small domestic appliances, EPE Group is looking to grow its business across the island of Ireland.

“I would encourage independent electrical retailers and cookshop owners to look at their product mix – the SDA market is a good market to be in, as every main SDA category is growing.

Mr Singh added: “We also encourage buying groups to engage in discussions so that EPE can help to increase sales for members.

“Now is the time for retailers that are not supplied by EPE Group to give us a call – EPE Group is the first and only choice for branded SDA.”


Helping Independents Compete this Black Friday

Black Friday 2014 Banner

EPE International are fully committed to helping Independent retailers compete in a busy market.

As a major part of this commitment, EPE International are delighted to announce our 2014 Black Friday deals.

This year’s Black Friday is on Friday 28th November. For those who aren’t aware, Black Friday has long been a big shopping day in the USA. In fact it’s the busiest shopping day of the year over there for two key reasons.
Firstly, it’s the first Friday after Thanksgiving and lots of people have the day off work, and thus secondly, retailers choose this day of merriment to offer their best bargains of the year. The result is often newsreels full of CCTV footage of desperate shoppers pulling each other’s hair to get to the impossibly priced small kitchen appliances, heaters and pressure washers.

In the UK, businesses have seen the benefit of the event and 2014 is expected to be the biggest British Black Friday yet. Nearly three-quarters of UK consumers have heard of Black Friday according to a study from eDigitalResearch. The challenge for retailers is to capitalize on the opportunity as more and more shoppers look to grab a bargain. You’ll have the chance to pick up and provide bargains on all sorts of small domestic appliances, and guess what, we’ll be on hand to help you find them!
