Arthur Price’s trade division has enjoyed an impressive 12 months, finishing the financial year to March 31 25.9% up on the same period last year.
Sales & marketing director John Horton puts the performance down to a strategy developed a few years ago.
He told HousewaresLive.net: “Over the last three years, Arthur Price has been through a period of unprecedented change. We’ve completely repositioned the company, with our biggest-ever programme of new products in both cutlery and gifts, new packaging, superior in-store fixtures to offer retailers, as well as significantly lowering our prices this year on our best-selling core ranges.”
Meanwhile, the company has just taken on a new area sales manager, John Glynn, to cover its newly-defined north territory. Glynn previously served the same region for Royal Worcester.
