Meet The Team
Blackpool Electrical Traders are focussed on customer commitment and sourcing quality products. We build our business on the strength of the relationship with our customers and suppliers. - In a wholesale business, this is key.
Says MD Blake Day "Wholesaling is a trade in itself and at BET we have a team that possesses an incredible depth of knowledge of this business. Our customers know that if they have a problem or a query, they can call us in to analyse the problem and provide the solution, a service that the big players just do not offer."
Blake has worked with the team for a number of years, he started as a young lad delivering goods for us. We brought him inside to provide a more hands-on approach with customers, as he has done most jobs within the company. After a brief career change, Blake decided to come back to the company in a sales role both internal and external, Blake has a wealth of experience and has a priceless knowledge of all aspects of the industry
At the start of this year Blake alongside Dave Fildes our Skelmersdale Electrical Distributors manager completed the management buyout of Blackpool Electrical Traders and Skelmersdale Electrical Distributors.
Sue is like the mother of the business and has been instrumental in the success and growth of the company over the years. Sues communication and business skills are vital to the everyday running of the business making her a very important member of the team.
Sue works alongside customers and suppliers on a daily basis making sure all their requirements are met.
Alongside Sue we have Katrina and Sharon who form the accounts team and also play a vital part in the business.
