EFG Housewares are one UK distributor who has reported good year on year growth despite the recession. Mark Shipton, Director at EFG Housewares commented that businesses like his have managed to experience growth during the tough economic period of austerity due to a number of factors. With customers attracted to lower trade prices combined with the ability to source all major brands under one roof, UK wholesalers like EFG are continuing to broaden their offer and extend their product ranges to appeal to a much wider range of buyers.
The launch in July of the new EFG Trade website heralds another exciting new chapter for the UK Exporter. Creating a trade website that manages tens of thousands of product skus was no mean feat. EFG chose the Leicester based leading B2B ecommerce provider Williams Commerce due to their extensive technical experience creating complex trade facing websites.
The new website provides customers with a fast and user friendly shopping experience. Approved trade customers can log in to their own account, use the advanced search to quickly find products, view live stock holdings, access special clearance lines and exclusive offers 24/7, 365 days of the year and all from the convenience of their own home. The integration with the cash and carry tills has offered customers the benefit to order online and collect in depot which Mark says is receiving a hugely positive response from trade customers. EFG is also a UK exporter. Their specialist team can load 20/40ft on their premises for customers ordering from Europe and Africa.

Firstly, pricing is hugely important, we offer a transparent pricing policy and guarantee seriously low prices. Secondly our range is simply enormous; we’ve built up to holding over 70,000 product lines in stock, which means excellent availability for our customers. Lastly, convenience. Our everything under one roof policy offers a truly convenient one stop shopping experience for our busy retailers and now with our new website, customers have the flexibility to click and collect, buy online for delivery or shop in store.”
