Eurocell Sunderland to service North East
18 November 2015
The latest branch of Eurocell in North East has opened at Carrmere Road on the Leechmere Industrial Estate in Sunderland, bringing the total number of branches to 141.
This is also the third Eurocell branch in the Tyne-Tees region, complementing branches in Newcastle and Gateshead. It offers greater convenience to installers and DIY decorators working in the area, who no longer have to travel so far to source materials and tools.
"There is a huge amount of work in Sunderland and surrounding areas so opening the branch gives customers much better access to our entire product range," said Phil Christie, Eurocell Regional Manager – North East. “It’s all in line with our philosophy of providing the best customer service available by establishing a strong branch network.”
The branch is close to associated suppliers and is conveniently located, about two miles miles south of Sunderland city centre and less than a mile from the new Southern Radial Route which provides direct access to the A19 and the city centre.
The company recruited the three branch staff on the basis of their experience on all sides of the industry, which spans from installation and manufacturing to distribution and technical support. The team will serve their own clients but can arrange delivery through the comprehensive branch network to where ever they might be working.
“It’s important to recognise that our customers want to deal with people who know what they want but also that this is a very mobile industry and so a customer can be working in Sunderland one week and Gateshead the next,” said Phil Christie, whose region includes 11 branches through the North East and Cumbria.
The branch features a showroom with a large trade counter area and stocks products including Skypod skylights, Equinox tiled conservatory roofs, roofline, rainwater systems, window finishing trims, doors and conservatories as well as lines such as underground drainage, hand tools, power tools and protective clothing.
Eurocell manufactures many of the products, so customers gain all the benefits of buying direct.
