Connectec’s founders came from a security installation background where they had first-hand experience of having to use multiple suppliers to complete each project. Also, it was apparent that many suppliers lacked the technical knowledge necessary to guide an installer through a difficult installation. Connectec was set up to help installers that needed a supplier that could offer convenience, advice and support all in one place. Starting a distribution company without any major investment was a real challenge and meant working long hours and resulted in many sleepless nights in the early years.
Connectec always put its customers first and go to every length to ensure that it meets and exceeds customers’ expectations. This ensures that customers will come back time and time again. The business also listens to customers’ feedback and draws on past experiences to ensure it stocks not only a huge range but also products that they believe in and have personally approved and used. Finally, whilst working to small margins makes managing cash flow a real challenge, it also ensures customers know that they are getting the best prices on everything sold from the smallest to the largest item.
The business plans to continue to expand its range and establish more direct relationships with manufacturers which, in turn, will improve margins, product availability and the support it can offer to customers. The goal is to grow the business and become one of the leading specialist electrical suppliers in the UK as well as the “go to” supplier for installers who want a high standard of service and support.
