Wholesale operator, Stax Trade Centres has expanded its own-brand offering with the acquisition of the Groundsman brush range range of household brooms, brushes and dustpans.

The Groundsman brand, which was previously distributed by LG Harris, joins a growing range of Stax own brands which appear across the 45,000 product lines it offers to customers.

"This is tremendous news for Stax," explains the company's purchasing director, Simon Wright. "The Groundsman range is well established and has an excellent reputation for providing both quality and value for money. We became a distributor for the brand earlier this year, so we're delighted to now be able to add it to the range of Stax own brands.

He added: "It's another step forward in our mission to deliver top quality brands at the sort of affordable prices which will allow them to compete with major national and online brands.

"Customers who already purchase Groundsman products from us can be assured that they will continue to be available from our various trade centres, and they can offer them to their own customers in complete confidence. This development will also provide fresh opportunities for existing customers and retailers who are new to the Groundsman brand. Developing our portfolio of own-brand products in this way is an important part of our long-term growth plans. The Groundsman products will help us to expand the choice available to our household and gardening customers, and so create benefits both for them and for Stax."

The Groundsman brushes are made from Forest Stewardship Council-approved wooden stocks finished in a medium oak varnish. They feature rugged and durable push-fit plastic sockets and offer a variety of fillings to suit a wide range of applications.
