Stax bolsters buying team with two new additions

Published: 11 May 2017 - Fiona Garcia

Wholesaler and trade supplier, Stax Trade Centres, has added two new members to its purchasing team, further strengthening the department.

Ian Evans joins from Makro, bringing with him a wealth of experience and a strong background in wholesale buying. He will take ownership of the hand tools, power tools, door furniture, hardware, ironmongery and workwear departments.

Matthew Ball, who has worked in a number of roles at Stax since graduating from Newcastle University, will now carry his valuable experience into the buying team. He will also be paying particular attention to council contracts, and tenders, to support the successful expansion growing within that sector.

Stax purchasing director, Simon Wright commented on the new appointments: “We’re delighted with the new additions to the team, who together bring a huge amount of industry experience and dynamism to the team. We’re always looking for ways to improve and when the opportunity to bring Ian on board came about it was an easy decision - his experience will be a great asset to us. Matthew has also proved his acumen in other areas of the business, so it’s great to see him coming through into the team.”

He continued: “Sourcing the right products at the right price is the foundation that we’ve built Stax upon, so ultimately this is great news for our customers”.
