Paint brush and roller manufacturer, Harris has agreed a distribution deal with wholesaler, Stax, in conjunction with BIRA Direct members.
The strategic partnership with Stax comes off the back of what the company describes as "a period of continued high demand for the Harris brand" amongst consumers.
As of March 1 this year, Harris products can be ordered through Stax, in addition to ordering them via the Harris channels (phone, fax, and online).
BIRA DIrect account holders will have access to the full range of products and will benefit from special offers.
Harris sales director Chris Scott said: "We are very pleased to be working in partnership with Stax to deliver the extensive Harris product range. The new arrangement will help increase ordering ease for our valued customers and increase the distribution of our products."
BIRA Direct commercial director and managing director Jeff Moody said: "For BIRA direct account holders the distribution agreement of Harris and Stax is great news as they can benefit from a vast range of quality Harris products at the ease of Stax ordering processes. It brings together two prominent names within the industry whose combined efforts can only strengthen independent retailers’ offering to consumers."
