EPE International’s support to retailers has been recognised with an award from the Mica co-operative of independent hardware and DIY retailers.
Michael Ball, Mica’s chief executiveexplained: “The New Supplier of the Year Award is given to the Mica supplier who has worked hard to develop their business with our independent retailers over the past year. We have occasionally taken on new suppliers who sit back after receiving preferred supplier status, but this is definitely not the case with EPE International.”
He continued: “They have used the platform to drive the business, making great effort to provide exciting product deals, demonstrate excellent customer services and build relationships with our members one on one. This has led to strong year on year sales growth since our partnership began less than two years ago.”
