Established in 1996 by Managing Director Geoff Kerly, Kew Electrical is an Independent Electrical Wholesaler with a network of 20 branches predominantly in the South of England, plus Belfast covering Northern Ireland. Experience runs throughout the company, led by a board of directors each with over 30 years of electrical wholesaling experience. This is mirrored throughout Kew with the majority of branch employees having spent years in the industry. Independence allows Kew to be entrepreneurial and not be tied down by rigid 'large company' policies. This permits branches to have a large local stock holding of major suppliers across the branch network, resulting in same day stock availability company wide. Furthermore these branches are supported by our central distribution centre which delivers to the branch network on a same or next day basis. To ensure competitive pricing, Kew is a key member of Fegime, one of Europe's leading electrical buying groups. This simple philosophy of same day stock availability, handled by experienced, customer focussed staff has resulted in Kew's success story as one of the UK's fastest growing independent wholesalers.
