New appointments at Stax Trade Centres


Housewares wholesaler Stax Trade Centres has announced details of two major new appointments at its Manchester branch.

Richard Cartwright and Andy Dilworth have joined the company as area sales representatives. Richard is taking on responsibility for North Wales and Merseyside, while Andy is focusing on the rest of the north-west region.

With particular expertise in horticulture, Richard has recently been involved in sales of various gardening and outdoor product lines from names such as Gardman, AFK, Leisuregrow, Henri Studio and Deco Pak. Having also previously worked as a garden centre manager, he has a detailed understanding of retail operations.

Andy brings a similar level of sales expertise to the 650-strong Stax team including section management and buyer roles at the Stax Leeds branch. Like Richard he also has particular experience of the garden and horticulture sector, having represented Gardman products, as well as brands such as Evergrow, Flymo and Wilkinson Sword.

Stax operations director Tim Ball said: “These are two key appointments that will allow us to take our customer support service to the next level. Both Richard and Andy have the experience they need to hit the ground running and are a fantastic addition to an already great team. They share our passion for supporting independent retailers, so our customers in the north-west, North Wales and Merseyside will really benefit from their positive approach and their knowledge of the wholesale market.”
