Catnic partners with buying group

Published:  24 January, 2012

CAERPHILLY: Catnic has recently signed a two-year deal with the Combined Buying Association (CBA), for the association’s members to supply Catnic’s bead and mesh products.

The CBA is a group of leading independent builders, timber and plumbers merchants working together to enhance their businesses through the development and deployment of coordinated purchasing in conjunction with supplier partners. The CBA has 23 member companies with in excess of 300 branches and Catnic’s products will be supplied throughout all of the association’s builders’ merchant members.

William Godfrey of the CBA commented: “The association and its members strive to work with the very best products and, for this, Catnic met our exacting requirements. The well known and reputable company not only offers top quality products, it also provides the very best service to support these products.”

Mike Murphy, sales and marketing director at Catnic said: “We are delighted to be working with the CBA and its members. With our support, merchants within the group will be able to offer their customers a premium brand, which is supported with an excellent service, technical advice, sales support, availability allowing orders to be fulfilled on time in full.”

Catnic supports all its CBA merchant customers with a focused marketing strategy, which helps to raise awareness of the importance of high quality bead and mesh. This ultimately helps to increase footfall through branches.
