Darren Hall, Head of Sales UK, said: “The signing of these leading consortia groups was integral to our development plans to establish the brand in the UK. We are delighted to be working with them and providing their respective members with a serious trade-only alternative in this market sector, with a commitment to delivering competitive pricing, extensive product offering and first-class service.

“Since signing the commercial deals the support from the consortia members has been fantastic and we have already started to forge a number of meaningful relationships with individual members, along with co-ordinating our marketing activity plans with head office.
