EPE Group seeks independent retailers to sell small domestic appliances

Distributor of small domestic appliances (SDA), EPE Group is seeking to sign-up independent retailers across electrical and kitchen sectors. In addition, it is also keen to work with buying groups across both sectors.

EPE Group is the exclusive UK distributor for a number of small domestic appliance brands, including Kenwood, De’Longhi, Kärcher and Philips. It also distributes small domestic appliances from Bosch, Panasonic, and Tefal, along with a number of managed brands including Ascaso, Bugatti Italy and Graef Starbucks Verismo. 

The family-run company operates from a 50,000sq ft warehouse in West Yorkshire.

Harry Singh, EPE’s Group’s investment, sales and marketing director, said: “In the current economic climate, sales of branded premium small domestic appliances are holding their own, with consumers opting to buy premium established branded products.

Singh added: “The key to that is about creating ‘theatre’ in your stores, which will help your sales. I’ve always been a great believer in the independent retail sector and I want to work with independents that are interested in selling, and demonstrating, products that are truly innovative.”
