Harris And Decco Confirm Independent Retailer Partnership 

Leading paint brush and roller manufacturer Harris and national home improvement and garden wholesaler Decco have agreed a distribution partnership to support independent retailers.  The agreement, effective immediately provides retailers with access to a wide range of quality brushes, rollers, decorating tools and brooms under the Harris, Lynwood and Groundsman brands. 
Through the partnership, retail customers can benefit from Decco’s low minimum order value, regular scheduled deliveries, competitive pricing and the ability to order in singles rather than cases.  In addition, an extensive calendar of promotions has been agreed, which will further enhance the competitiveness of the offer.

Chris Scott, Sales Director for Harris commented “Decco carries a comprehensive range of Harris products giving excellent choice and value to independent retailers.  With its national coverage from its regional centres, it can ensure great service across the UK and increased ease of ordering for Harris stockists”

Charlie Lacey, Chief Operating Officer for Decco commented “We’re delighted to be working closely with Harris as a preferred wholesaler. The Harris product ranges, brand ethos and position as market leader ties in perfectly with our exclusively branded product strategy.”

Independent retailers and Decco customers, Andrew and Christine Maddock from Morrey’s of Holme Chapel, who currently order their Harris stock through Decco commented, “We’d encourage any retailer to order Harris product from Decco - it’s a no brainer.  We switched our Harris direct business to Decco some years ago and have benefitted greatly from their fast deliveries and wide stock holding, while still enjoying similar terms to Harris direct, Andrew continued, “Combining our Harris orders with Decco’s other leading brands also means we don’t have to wait to meet the Harris minimum order value.”




Decco Raises £1750 In Loctite Hanging Man Challenge

To help celebrate the Rainy Day Trust’s 175th anniversary and fundraising drive, the manager of Decco’s Leeds distribution centre, Andrew Ballantine was literally left hanging as he became the latest industry figure to prove the strength of Henkel’s Loctite brand.

The stunt took place at Decco’s recent Leeds trade show at York Racecourse and with the aid of the exhibiting Henkel team, Andrew undertook the Loctite Hanging Man Challenge, which replicates the Henkel TV advertisement for Loctite SuperGlue. £1750.00 was raised for the Rainy Day Trust’s #Challenge175.

Commenting on the experience, Andrew said, “Not something I’d recommend anyone to try at home, but thanks to Henkel, I felt I was in safe hands. It was a great way to raise money for the industry charity and I’d like to thank all the exhibiting Decco suppliers and all the Decco customers who came along and supported the cause. Decco trade shows are always great fun, but being the Loctite Hanging Man really added something extra to the proceedings.”

All Decco’s regional distribution centre managers are supporting the Rainy Day Trust’s #Challenge175, as well as several members of the Decco management team.

Decco has seven strategic locations around the country giving a total of over 350,000 square feet of warehousing space and holding over £10m worth of stock. It specialises in offering top quality service and availability to independent retailers and garden centres throughout the UK.  As part of its commitment to supporting the independent market, Decco holds a series of regional trade shows in Spring and Autumn for the benefit of existing and new retail customers.
