Stax expands own-brand offering by acquiring Groundsman premium brush range

Stax Trade Centres has expanded the range of own-brand products it offers to independent retailers and trade professionals with the acquisition of the Groundsman range of premium household brooms, brushes and dustpans.

The Groundsman brand, which was previously distributed by LG Harris, joins a growing range of Stax own brands which appear across the 45,000 product lines it offers to customers.

Stax purchasing director Simon Wright commented: “This is tremendous news for Stax. The Groundsman range is well established and has an excellent reputation for providing both quality and value for money. We became a distributor for the brand earlier this year, so we’re delighted to now be able to add it to the range of Stax own brands.

“As a wholesaler that serves independent retail businesses and trade customers Stax is absolutely committed to providing them with the very best support and expanding the choice available from our own-range brand allows us to do exactly that. It’s another step forward in our mission to deliver top quality brands at the sort of affordable prices which will allow them to compete with major national and online brands.”

He added: “Customers who already purchase Groundsman products from us can be assured that they will continue to be available from our various trade centres, and they can offer them to their own customers in complete confidence. This development will also provide fresh opportunities for existing customers and retailers who are new to the Groundsman brand.

“Developing our portfolio of own-brand products in this way is an important part of our long-term growth plans. The Groundsman products will help us to expand the choice available to our household and gardening customers, and so create benefits both for them and for Stax.”
