Office Friendly announce an exciting new venture with HBS Educational Supplies that will enable all our Dealers, irrespective of size or experience, to take advantage of the significant opportunities that exist in the Educational sector.
HBS Education exhibited at our October Sales Conference last October and in less than six months has 30 dealers on board and we expect that by the year end this will have increased to over 50!
HBS is a family-run company which has successfully operated against national educational distributors for over forty years. Tim Doouss, HBS Group MD, said “we have been looking for an opportunity to work with independent dealers throughout the UK and the Office Friendly profile ticked all the boxes!! In our experience schools and colleges prefer local suppliers who can offer a fast, personal service at a competitive price.”
Practical dealer support includes: specialist catalogues both printed and online, integrated back office systems, marketing support and local/regional dealer training.
Keeley Shepherd, Office Friendly Sales Director, said “we are always looking to provide our dealers with new routes to market and it was a logical step to expand our activities into the education sector.”
“Many of our dealers are already supplying schools with traditional office products and services. Now our exclusive arrangement with HBS Education means that we can provide a strong platform for our dealers to develop this major opportunity with the help and support of an experienced commercial partner.”
