Diversifying into PPE - are you maximising sales to the customers you already have?

We all know it’s difficult to get new business, but are you maximising sales to the customers you already have?

Diversifying into PPE could be the answer, and is an easy addition to product ranging, with profit margins of 25-45% being achievable. 

Increasing safety legislation means the PPE market sector is only growing, and Troy UK’s Business Development Team are on hand to support you in adopting or enhancing PPE offerings and liaising with suppliers in the field on your behalf.

Recently Simon James and Wendy Perkins supported Member DJ Evans to reconfigure their trade counter and source information to submit pricing proposals to customers….

“Now DJ Evans is a Troy UK member we have access to purchasing leading brands in the PPE and workwear arena. Troy UK have offered fantastic product support, specifically Simon James and Wendy Perkins, who as PPE BDM and Category Managers deliver a fast and knowledgeable service. Simon has been very effective in sourcing all relevant infomation needed to submit pricing proposals to our customers. This has enabled us to have access to a service that can quickly inform you of prices, MOQ’s and a local representative! This is a must for any busy Field Sales Representative.”

Not only does Troy UK have extensive industry knowledge in the Business Development Team, we also have a fantastic relationship with the British Safety Industry Federation allowing us to offer reduced prices for courses to members. Read more about the value BSIF membership and courses can bring your business here.  

“We believe that by using the benefits of BSIF members and the RSSS Shield to market our business, and by being ahead of the curve, we have attracted new and better business….as current members we fully recommend membership to all our fellow Troy members. Remember ‘Anyone can sell Safety, but you wouldn’t buy Safety from just anyone’ ”
