As an award-winning distributor for Portwest, and recently appointed distributor for Scandinavian safety glove and footwear experts – EJENDALS (manufacturers of the lightest, most flexible and technically advanced safety boots in Europe); as well as trade suppliers of the full ranges from the likes of Dickies, Supertouch, Regatta Professional, Snickers and Lee Cooper; and not forgetting its own brands – DMAX and TopSport – you could say that CKL is a specialist in distributing workwear.
CKL sales director, Bali Rakhra, said: “We’re gaining a lot more business from garment decorators from all round the UK.
“Even those who have direct accounts with the brands still come to us as they can get everything they need from one place, and our prices can work out cheaper for them, especially for smaller orders where they’d have to pay carriage from each of their regular suppliers.”
CKL has added over 2,000 new products to its range this year alone, including 400 new items in its fire-retardent, hi-vis, PPE, safety glove, footwear and workwear ranges. But, perhaps more significant then the sheer breadth of its range, is CKL’s latest 2015 price reductions.
Its own-brand products have undergone extensive price reworking to represent unparalleled value, spec-for-spec. Relevant brands would include the D-MAX brand of heavyweight 280g polycotton twill industrial workwear encompassing kneepad-ready coveralls, work trousers, aprons and warehouse coats, and the TopSport brand of workwear grade polo shirts, sweatshirts, fleeces and jackets.
CKL’s website and catalogues are yet to be updated with its fast-growing range, so it would be best to contact CKL directly to find out what the distributor can offer.
