Polish housewares supplier BranQ uses recyclable materials to make household products which are suitable for multiple use. The range covers bathroom, kitchen, cleaning, storage, and products for children.
Genpower started in 2006 as an importer of generators and has grown progressively through agreements with the Hyundai Corporation to distribute firstly generators and water pumps, and then successively air compressors, pressure washers, garden machinery, power tools, replacement engines and light construction equipment. It now employs more than 50 staff and is based in a 120,000sq ft distribution centre at Pembroke Dock in south-west Wales.
BHETA has also added another business service provider – MTD Training – to add to its 29-strong list. MTD specialises in all levels of management and leadership training and provides open, in house and online courses with CPD (Continuing Professional Development) certification.
BHETA’s service providers offer members a range of discounts, special terms and free advice and guidance. Areas of expertise covered include environmental advice, exhibitions, legal, HR, corporate risk, logistics, marketing, data, recruitment and software, as well as media and industry partners.
Will Jones, BHETA’s chief operating officer, commented: “It’s great to see expansion in both the DIY and housewares sectors. It just goes to show that all suppliers, retailers and trade associations simply need to focus on the marketplace notwithstanding the challenges around us.”
