FL Hitchman, manufacturer of the iconic Aquaroll and Wastemaster, have announced a new distribution agreement with Reimo GmbH this month.
This agreement comes following a considerable rise in interest from Europe for both Aquaroll and Wastemaster products through the company’s new website www.aquaroll.com. With enquiries coming in from Germany, France, Denmark, Italy and Sweden, Managing Director James Griffin began to look for a suitable partner to help supply demand overseas.
‘This is a significant landmark for the company’ explains James Griffin, ‘so few suppliers to our industry manufacturer in the UK; we have such a large, loyal customer base within the UK and we look forward to extending that overseas’.
Despite the launch of various imitating products within the UK, F.L.Hitchman has managed to retain its title of market leader since they invented the product back in the 1950’s. Focussing on quality, sustainability and ethical trading Hitchman’s has grown from strength to strength celebrating their 60th year of trading over the last 12 months.
Felix Holona of Reimo GmbH added, ‘We are pleased to be adding the Aquaroll and Wastemaster product range to our catalogue and online shop (www.reimo.com). We have been aware of the product and its success in the UK for some time and we are proud to be the first official EU distributor for F.L.Hitchman. If any European dealers or end customers would like more information on the range, please contact us’.
The Aquaroll and Wastemaster has established itself as one of the highest volume selling and most recognisable accessories in the UK for caravan and motorhome users alike; however, until now the company has never exported from their injection moulding factory based in Shropshire outside of the UK.
James continues, ‘We are extremely proud and excited to start our export venture by supplying a well-known and reputable company like Reimo, who we know will represent the brand maintaining the same family values that we hold dear’.
