South West electrical wholesaler Devondale Electrical has been shortlisted in the 2020 Electrical Wholesaler of the Year Awards in not just one but two categories - Best Wholesaler 6-25 Branches and Best Individual Branch for the company’s Bideford Branch.
Devondale has been in business for almost 40 years and has grown to have nine branches across the region, supplying a huge range of electrical products to contractors large and small with a personal service backed by experience and expertise.
Managing Director, Paul Wood said: “Everyone at Devondale is delighted that the company has been named as a finalist - it’s an accolade to the high level of commitment we have towards our customers.
“A huge congratulations too, to our Bideford team who truly deserve their shortlisting – they put so much energy into the branch and supporting the community.”
The Bideford branch is one of the newer Devondale locations having opened in 2016. In just a few years it has become a real success story, building an impressive customer base, encouraging apprentices into full time roles and supporting the local community through initiatives such as sponsorship of a new fleet of Giant ATX 2 Disc mountain bikes for Pilton Community College, and charity fundraising including Mission Unbreakable for the North Devon Hospice.
North Devon Regional Manager, Sam Stephens said: “We feel very honoured that our relatively new branch in Bideford has made this far and now up we’re against the big boys from the City!”
Entries go through a voting system where customers and suppliers choose their favourites before these go before a panel of industry experts for the final decision on who will be crowned the champions at the awards event.
