Why choose D.A.D

We are a family-run business and have been supplying electrical and gas appliances for over 40 years. When we first began, we identified a gap in the market for a supplier that could give independent retailers a focused and efficient service.

Since then we’ve expanded to supply a range of different sectors and industries, but our founding principles remain the same – to provide the best possible service, speedy delivery and competitive prices.

Sirius Buying Group

Distributors play a vital part in the operation of the Sirius Buying Group's business. Members of the group need suppliers that they can rely on to stay competitive in today's market. With the addition of Montpellier, D.A.D's own brand, we made sure all the 155 members of Sirius could make a good margin over a wide and reliable range of goods.

Success Stories

Bovis Homes

A homebuilder needed an urgent delivery to a completed house that had access problems. The D.A.D team of fitters who took the appliance out went the extra yard to complete the delivery. They carefully carried the appliance to the house, making sure not to cause any damage to the newly laid garden as they did so. Both the homebuilder and the homeowner thanked the team for their careful delivery and customer service.

Just to let you know, the delivery guys were great, they even took it off the trolley and carried it so as not to harm garden plants when getting it to the back door.

Success Stories

Nailsea

An end user visited a Nailsea outlet with a quote for kitchen appliances from a large chain retailer. Nailsea promptly contacted D.A.D to see what price we could supply them with. Thanks to our strong relationships and buying power with suppliers, we were able to quote Nailsea a very keen price. The customer consequently placed the order with Nailsea and the stock was delivered as soon as possible.

When a customer challenges us to match a quote it can be our reputation as well as a piece of business that's on the line. D.A.D were able to make sure that we beat the quote and won the business.

Success Stories

Co-Op Electrical

With customers across the country and the strength of a leading brand in the marketplace, Co-Op Electrical often experiences a huge demand for particular products. When the stores ran out of stock of a core line, they needed products to meet demand as soon as possible.

Thanks to the expertise of our stock holding and logistics team, D.A.D were able to process the Co-Op's order and get stock delivered within 24 hours. Consequently the product downtime was reduced significantly, and the Co-Op's reputation was protected.

When stock ran out we thought we were going to have to turn custom away. One call to D.A.D made sure we didn't let any customers down.

Success Stories

The Wright Buy

When D.A.D introduced a promotion of a free Tastecard with selected Montpellier products, The Wright Buy wanted to promote the offer online. However, they were having difficulty creating marketing collateral. Our marketing team worked closely with the customer to produce banner ads and online content to make sure the promotion came across loud and clear to the end user.

The Tastecard promotion was successfully implemented online for The Wright Buy, and the business saw a corresponding increase in sales.

The D.A.D team were so professional, they just came in and created the banners in no time so we could get to market as quickly as possible.

Success Stories

Sheffield City Council

In 2014 Sheffield City Council asked organisations to tender for provision of goods and appliances. D.A.D won the business and introduced a framework to deliver economies of scale for the Council, which has to operate under tight financial constraints.

D.A.D have helped the Council make sure some of the most vulnerable people in the city have managed to sustain their tenancy. We have since rolled out the framework, introducing best value to other third parties too.

The Council has an excellent logistical working relationship with D.A.D. They manage everything from stock items to warranties, ensuring that the goods we receive are always the best units available for the usage required.
