EPE Group outperforms SDA market in 2015

EPE Group, which distributes branded small domestic appliances and floorcare appliances, has announced that sales increased 18.2% in 2015, with notable performances in food preparation and linen care.

The company said it has grown organically, taking market share from its competitors, and at a faster rate than the small domestic appliances market, which has been buoyant for a number of years.

EPE Group investment and marketing director Harry Singh said: “In 2015, Kenwood and Philips performed well in the food preparation category, with Braun and Philips more than holding their own in the linen care category. In floorcare, AEG, Bissell and Kärcher performed well.”

As the exclusive distributor of Philips’ SDA range, EPE has recently launched the brand’s new Anti-Allergen Home Range. The collection of eight products includes an air purifier, dust mite cleaner, bagged and bagless vacuum cleaners and two cordless models plus a number of product accessories.

Appliances in the range are endorsed by The British Allergy Foundation and the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF).

“The anti allergy market is growing as more and more customers become aware of the health benefits that these products offer,” said Singh.

Commenting on the small appliances market as a whole, he added: “Our customers know that there is money to be made in the SDA market. As we grow our business, our customers are growing their businesses too.”

Bissell®-Steam-Shot The hot new way to steam through your cleaning

The hot new way to steam through your cleaning – get the dirt off your curtains, oven and toys with ONE gadget

  • Lauren Libbert tests out eight new steam cleaners 
  • High-pressured steam gets creases out of clothes, fabrics and cleans Lego 
  • The appliances kill off bacteria and dust mites in mattresses


Bissell®-Steam-Shot, £39.99, lakeland.co.uk

Bissell®-Steam-Shot, £39.99
This handheld device looked like a cross between a teapot and a drill. I poured the water from measuring cup into the device, twisted it closed and switched it on. Simple! Attaching the accessory nozzle, squeegee and cloth was effortless, too, but it took a minute for the steamer to be ready, which tested my patience. The squeegee ran smoothly up and down the fabric and instantly ironed out crinkles so the curtains draped elegantly. The device felt heavy – it weighs 1.36kg. I needed a ladder too, as there wasn’t an extension lead. But the results were impressive.

Verdict: Very easy to use with instant results.
