New MD for F&P Wholesale

Published:  23 December, 2013

F & P Wholesale, a distributor of heating, plumbing and bathroom products to the independent merchant sector, appointed Jed Kenrick as managing director earlier this year.

He has over 20 years' experience of Blue Chip operations and has spent 14 years working in supply chain roles in manufacturing, purchasing and logistics.

As managing director, Mr Kenrick will ensure the company continues to set the industry standard for distribution excellence. He said: "Having met and talked to many customers since my appointment, it is clear F&P Wholesale has a great reputation with customers. We are uniquely focused on independent merchants and retailers and we have historically existed to support this channel. This will continue to be absolutely where we will be focused.

"In 2014 our challenge as a business will be to really understand how we can make doing business easier and start to develop broader solutions that help [customers] grow their profits. We also plan to strengthen our offer across the range."

F & P Wholesale delivers out of nine locations around the UK.
