A message from our Sales Director: EPE further invests in RSM team expansion

As part of our growth and further investment into our team I have begun the exciting process of interviewing candidates for our ninth addition to the EPE Regional Sales team; an RSM for Scotland.

Yesterday I met with several fantastic candidates, who were enthusiastic and passionate about the prospect of joining a forward thinking and growing company like EPE.

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 looking towards a bigger, brighter future for the branded household goods market.

Recent statistics have shown the UK housewares market has risen significantly over the last decade going from £10.8 billion to £13.5 billion pounds by 2019. These figures are only set to rise and the future looks promising for the market with additional growth predicted to rise by another half a billion pounds by 2021.

This sector has grown considerably due to consumer spending on houseware goods increasing since 2017 with more demand for the products. In the UK, the average consumer purchases a mix of local and British made products and globally recognised brands; which as you know at EPE what we do best is bringing branded SDA to UK retailers and ultimately the British consumer. Leading in the market share for household goods were British companies Dunelm and John Lewis

In a survey of over 4000 respondents taken earlier this year of the most popular brands for household goods some big names made the cut. Coming in top of the list was Philips followed by Bosch, Tefal, Russell Hobbs and Kenwood.

At EPE we are feeling positive about the future of the household goods market going into 2020 and we hope to continue to build on the strong partnerships we have with our brands and supplying high quality branded SDA and providing a stellar service to our retailers.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year from EPE and all of our Brands.
