Sugro are continuing their growth with the acquisition of two new members: A List Brands and Interstoq.
Manchester based A List Brands boast a wide customer base of independent clearance and discount stores, and smaller wholesalers and cash & carry’s. They are established in the field of toiletries and pet food but have joined Sugro UK to lean on their expertise within grocery and impulse categories.
Aqib Maqbool of A List Brands commented “We are delighted to join buying group Sugro UK, and we aim to take advantage of the full Sugro membership experience. With their help, we can offer the best in pricing, promotions, and look to offer a diverse range of products to our customers. This will allow us to increase our business. We have had a great experience since joining Sugro membership recently, they are a fantastic team that provide support when required at any stage.”
Interstoq also chose Sugro UK as their buying group of choice this year. Interstoq, who have depots in Oldham and Essex, provide a wide range of confectionery, crisps and snacks, soft drinks and alcohol to their wholesale and retail customers, and are keen to benefit from the numerous initiatives and benefits Sugro have to offer. Gordon McCarty said “Having spoken with three buying groups, we found Sugro UK to be the most responsive, professional and proactive; the Head Office team really took the time to learn about our business, and we were looking for the longevity that Sugro UK promised. As we work towards a more strategic approach to our customer base, we feel Sugro UK are best placed in terms of offering that extra level of support, and we anticipate a long-standing relationship with them.”
Tabitha Hunter-Smale, Head of Business Development for Sugro UK also added “we are delighted to welcome two new members to the Sugro family. As a group, we constantly strive to offer our wholesale members the very best in support and guidance, and we are confident we can add value to these wholesale companies collectively”.
