About the employer

Awan marketing was established in 1976 by the late founder Mr Bashir A Awan as a small retail business in Birmingham. From it's humble beginnings, with hard work and dedication to the quality of products and customer service, it grew by supplying other retailers in the locality. In 1981 the first Cash & Carry was opened on Great Hampton Street, Hockley. After eight years in these premises we re-located to larger premises on the same road. In this period of time we became an even more respectable and popular distributor for many large companies. Awan achieved many records in sales and distribution from TDK for being it's largest distributor in the UK for 10 consecutive years! Awan has grown to become a key distributor for Hitachi, Sharp, JVC, LG, Daewoo, BT, Kenwood to name but a few. Looking into the new Millennium the son’s of the now Managing Director Mr Nasir Awan, decided to take a great leap and build on the success and reputation of the company. The purpose built 35,000 sq ft modern warehouse and wholesale centre is now supplying the shopkeepers and general trade in the UK. Awan has very quickly established it's place among the largest wholesalers in the UK. Carrying over 30,000 lines, servicing a customer base of over 14,000 throughout the UK, Europe, Africa and Asia. Awan is now run by the second and third generations, and is as keen today as in it's humble beginnings to talk and listen to customers. To offer quality, competitive, innovative and fast-selling products with sincerity.
