What will the apprentice be doing?
Established in 1996 by 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 and Gloucester.
Experience runs throughout the company, led by a board of directors each with over 30 years of electrical wholesaling experience. This is mirrored throughout KEW with the majority of branch employees having spent years in the industry.
Independence allows KEW to be entrepreneurial and not be tied down by rigid ‘large company’ policies. This permits branches to have a large local stock holding of major suppliers across the branch network, resulting in same day stock availability company wide. Furthermore, these branches are supported by our central distribution centre which delivers to the branch network on a same or next day basis.
To ensure competitive pricing, KEW is a key member of FEGIME, one of Europe’s leading electrical buying groups.
This simple philosophy of same day stock availability, handled by experienced, customer focused staff has resulted in KEW’s success story as one of the UK’s fastest growing independent wholesalers.
What is an Electrical Wholesaler?
Electrical wholesalers sell the products we all use in our homes, businesses, entertainment venues, cafes that give us access to electricity – from lighting our homes through to floodlighting a football match, from recharging a mobile phone to recharging an electric vehicle. The products you will be working with are used in domestic, industrial, and commercial settings, and are installed by contractors and electricians.
