KNIPEX announces key distribution agreement

KNIPEX has announced it is partnering with Tarlu Ltd., a Dorset-based service provider that specialises in fulfilling the high logistical demands of today´s business environment. The partnership will benefit end users and stockists, including builders’ merchants, plumbers’ merchants and electrical wholesalers and is designed to make it as easy as possible to source KNIPEX products, increase product availability and speed up the delivery of products to UK stockists.

Since the UK left the European Union, the supplying of products from the KNIPEX production facility in Wuppertal, Germany, has become increasingly challenging and our customers have been suffering from imposed import handling charges and longer transit times.

“This will now change,” explains Alex Neite, International Sales Manager. “Thanks to our partnership with Tarlu Ltd., KNIPEX will be able to offer relief from the administrative burden and will start supplying its network of stockists with a wider range of products delivered within just a few days, making planning and stock management a lot easier.”

In line with KNIPEX’s dual channel distribution policy, the company will also further strengthen the cooperation with its Distribution partners through even stronger and more focused sales and marketing support, to offer highest sourcing flexibility and maximum market coverage.

“This investment and strategic positioning will allow us to service the growing demand for KNIPEX products and it will significantly increase the availability of an unrivalled range of innovative products to end-users in many different industries across the UK,” continues Alex. “For our customers, the ordering process will not change, and orders will still be placed with and confirmed by KNIPEX-Werk in Germany. If any of our stockists have any questions, please get in touch with your area sales manager who will be happy to help you.”
