Keep it local

Giving you the permanent platform to make a difference

supporting local

A national Campaign for local businesses

We represent a group of independent business supplies dealers

All are well placed to service the requirements of government and public sector contracts, as well as providing internationally competitive price and service from within the local community – we have over 300 members, covering the whole of the United Kingdom and feel strongly that these businesses are in a position to drive the new wave of enthusiasm for buying local, supporting local and keeping it local.

Local supply with international competitiveness

Their local product and service offerings are competitive and backed by the nationwide support of our group, which is additionally part of an international buying group, Business Products Group International (BPGI). Working together as an international group we service over 1.5 million customers locally with the collective buying power to match the larger international competitors in the market…If given a fair opportunity.

Fighting for fairness when it comes to competing with large multi-nationals

Acknowledging, and admiring, governments aspirations for 33% of public spending to be through SME’s, we feel strongly that these businesses are still being disadvantaged. The current procurement decision making of large businesses, the public sector and academies fails to give enough weight to keeping it local. Far too much public money is being spent with larger multi-national suppliers within our industry who will not be keeping the money within the local community.

Fairness & Honesty

Unlike some competitors, our dealers offer a transparent pricing policy and are liable for all the taxes that support our local community.

As a group representing the perfect supply partners to our government and larger businesses within our community we are looking for your support in assisting our campaign to give smaller businesses a fairer opportunity.
