Bradley Bray believes his recently-launched refrigeration and HVAC wholesale business, Evomart, can represent an “evolution in distribution’’ by giving more brands a route to market in the UK.
The former Advanced Engineering Sales Director said: “Consolidation has meant some very good brands found themselves without an alternative route into the UK market. We want to address that and, by doing so, give the customers more choice. We want Evomart to take a step forward in how we represent brands and support our customers, and the feedback to date has been very positive.’’
Evomart offers a range of tools, components and parts, including CPS manifolds and gauges, Blackmax recovery machines and Dry All filters, alongside air conditioning equipment from LG. The range incorporates around 200 lines, with more expected to follow.
The business operates from premises in Aldermaston, near Reading, and a trade counter service is available. But Bray believes the majority of orders (next-day courier delivery if placed before 3pm) will come through the Evomart website, which he says has been designed to support contractors in a number of innovative ways.
