Welcome to bira direct
I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I joined bira, the days have flown by!
Since Paul Woolley retired the bira direct team have been kept very busy, working with and developing some excellent new suppliers such as; Connect Distribution, Rymans Stationers, Jaleno, CB Sourcing and The Great British Exchange. In particular Connect are offering an entirely new way of ordering goods, which will bring the High Street rapidly into the 21st Century. Do contact us to find out more if you haven’t yet set up your account with them.
We are branching out into exciting new areas also, providing more energy efficient lighting which will also offer annual cost savings. Watch this space, we hope to launch this to all of our members very soon!
In July we held the first bira golf day at Belton Woods Hotel, this was an excellent day out and a resounding success. The first of many more, I’m sure.
I wish you all a very successful Autumn and many cost savings our September Stock and Save campaign.
Managing Director, bira direct
