At this year’s Glee (27-29th June 2023 at the NEC, Birmingham), on stand 20H20-J21, British garden equipment manufacturer and supplier Handy is emphasising its support for retailers and the many opportunities available through Handy to maximise earning potential.
Established in 1938 and still a family-owned British business, Handy is now one of the UK’s largest independent garden machinery wholesale distributors and manufacturers. Handy’s own brands include Webb, The Handy and Q Garden, and it is the UK-appointed distributor for Greenworks and Cramer cordless equipment. In addition, the company distributes access brands such as Flymo, Kärcher, Bosch, Solo, Walsall wheelbarrows and more. Many of Handy’s products are award-winning and regularly feature as Gardeners’ World ‘Best Buys’. Handy also regularly supports retailers with their own label manufacturing needs with the design and production of exclusive models.
An intimate lounge area has been created on the Handy Glee stand specifically for visitors to the show to discuss their garden machinery needs in a relaxed environment. Handy staff will be on hand to advise retailers not only of the products available but also of the support provided, including dropship opportunities and point of sale support, and Handy’s online portal for quick and easy access to spare parts; Handy carries over 70,000 spare part lines and has market leading availability thanks to its £6m+ stock commitment.
Mark Moseley, Handy’s Sales & Marketing Director, comments on the change of direction for the company at this year’s Glee: “At previous shows, we have very much focussed on our extensive product range, and we feel that the breadth and quality of our product lines are well understood. For 2023 we have chosen to change the emphasis to focus on the extensive support and service we have in place for retailers to help them get the most out of our products, by meeting their customers’ diverse needs and maximising sales. Our experience, expert knowledge and dedicated customer service are central to this. We not only understand product but also the needs of retailers and their customers and it’s important for us to convey this. It’s equally important for us to listen to our customers, so the new lounge area on the Glee stands will enable a two-way discourse, in an informal setting.”
