industrynews TRADE COUNTER BEATS LONGSTANDING SALES RECORD Truemans, the fast growing northern trade counter chain, has reported its record sales week, selling £120k across its three depots during the last week of September. Truemans has been gaining market share for quite some time, steadily building up a loyal following from installers who enjoy the convenience of dealing with a local supplier, and the company is now experiencing a sustained period of significant growth. Managing Director, Joe Trueman, comments on the record sales week: “2013 has been a particularly good year for Truemans. We opened a new branch in Doncaster last month, which has already gone down a storm with local tradesman, and our long-standing Burnley and Sheffield branches have both seen an increase in volume. Volume is coming in from new customers but also existing customers who are ordering more. We offer free sales and marketing support and this is helping our customers grow, pulling more sales through our depots.” Truemans doesn’t manufacture any of its products; they buy-in very large quantities from some of the country’s largest ‘super-fabricators’, so they can afford to concentrate on offering customers real added value service.
