LSUK Seeks Retail Battery Partners
LSUK, which claims to be the largest single supplier of batteries in to the UK automotive, marine, leisure, industrial and commercial industries, is giving proactive garages, fitters and retailers the opportunity to join its battery programme – and reap numerous rewards at the same time. The UK battery market is estimated to be worth £120 million in retail sales every year and LSUK has established itself as a leading player in the sector with the unrivalled service that it can offer. With 52 distribution branches nationwide, LSUK is in the position to offer first class product availability from stock, access to the best brands on the market, and arguably the most competitive pricing structure in the battery sector.
And now the Sheffield-based company is inviting garages, accessory shops and fitting centres the opportunity to join its 2006 battery programme and become a recognised ‘LSUK Battery Centre’. LSUK currently supplies 12-volt and 24-volt Lucas-branded batteries into numerous markets, all of which are manufactured to the latest industry specifications and carry specific warranties.
LSUK commercial director, Shaun Darke, reckons the chance to join forces with the UK’s largest single supplier of batteries is too good for any retailer or fitter to pass up. He said: “We’re not just taking about a business aligning itself with some of the best products on the market or with the biggest name in the business, this opportunity is just as much to do with the other incentives we are offering.
“As soon as someone orders 10 batteries they will automatically become an LSUK Battery Centre and with that comes interest-free credit, preferential prices on products and future purchases, and a tried-and-trusted sales support programme. For anyone that’s looking to build their business or perhaps move in to a new market sector with confidence, I think this represents a sensible proposition.”
