Celebrating its silver anniversary, Portway will be unveiling a range of promotions

Hampshire-based appliance distributor Portway is celebrating 25 years in business by offering a range of promotions via a virtual trade show.

The company specialises in the national distribution of white goods to independent electrical retailers.

Commercial director John Bainbridge said: “We’ve traded through boom times and two appalling recessions. We’ve seen retailers, brands and people come and go and come back again! But, thanks to the tenacity and loyalty of our retailer base Portway has grown exponentially.

He continued: “Today, retail margins have never been tighter with prices being driven down and down. To help our customers reduce their costs, our own stock holding has never been greater. Holding huge stock saves space and the cost of space for our retailers. Portway’s super-fast delivery service has never been more vital, again to allow retailers to avoid unnecessary stock but be able to deliver promptly. I am sure it is because we recognise what is needed that we enjoy the business that we continue to flourish.”

Bainbridge commented on the promotions: “These are not just discounts they are a genuine thank you to our core retailers who have done business with us for a long time. They are a chance to celebrate our anniversary in a meaningful way.”
