The promotion of Mr Bryant will help the business - which supplies hardware, ironmongery, gardening, plumbing and electricals - meet growing demand for its products and services. He will lead a sales team dedicated to serving the company’s growing customer base.

Based in South Yorkshire, Centurion Europe supplies over 27,000 product lines from around the world throughout the UK, Ireland, Europe and rest of the world.
