Established in 1996 by former Managing Director Geoff Kerly, KEW Electrical is an Independent electrical wholesaler with a network of 26 branches predominantly in the South of England, plus Belfast covering Northern Ireland.
As an award winning Independent electrical distributor, experience runs throughout the compa- ny, which is led by a board of directors each with over 30 years of electrical wholesale experience.
Each branch has autonomy in what they stock, which allows them to support customers in their local area with the products they need. KEW recognises that branches cannot hold stock for every eventuality and that at times customers will need items which are not stocked locally. To take full advantage of its entire inventory, KEW have an extensive inter-branch link that gives branches access to additional stock for same day delivery.
The simple philosophy of same day stock availability, handled by experienced, customer focussed staff has resulted in KEW’s success story as one of the UK’s fastest growing independent wholesalers.
Nik Mulcahy, Managing Director credits KEW’s continued success to three factors: “loyal knowl- edgeable staff, stock availability, and accessibility through trade counters and the delivery net- work”.
“It’s all about local knowledge, local accessibility and keeping it simple. We don’t overburden our staff with reporting and processes, and we keep it as straightforward as we can.”
This approach has been acknowledged by the industry with several awards, most recently ‘Best Electrical Wholesaler 26+ branches’ and ‘Best Individual Branch - Dover’ at the Electrical Whole- saler of the year awards 2020, KEW has also been recognised outside of the electrical industry by being included in London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2020 and that demonstrates that we’re on a right track to grow even further in 2021.
