“As the UK’s leading distributor of branded premium small domestic appliances, we have invested in our sales team to ensure that we have experience professionals working across the country – and I am delighted that, from a standing start, we have added three floorcare brands to our portfolio, namely AEG, Bissell and Kärcher.”

He continued: “EPE Group has a track record of working with independents and we are looking to build on this – we provide a complete service to all customers, with experienced field sales managers to look after all your needs.”

The announcement comes following the addition of Bissell to the EPE Group portfolio, with EPE Group managing director Noel Pamment expressing his delight at the exclusive distribution agreement.
