H&B Group’s Development Group was established in 2018 in a bid to offer selected smaller merchants access to offers for a range of negotiated deals and a mapped route to growth and success.
It is continuing its strategic expansion plan with two new members from south west England joining the growing membership.
The H&B Development group is said to be a completely new concept for the merchanting industry. It offers smaller merchants access to the benefits of membership of a growing buying group, with structures and strategies in place to help them to achieve the turnover required to take them to the next level, into the main H&B group.
The H&B management team aims to steer up to 25 merchants a year through the system, filling their place with new recruits as they graduate.
H&B’s Allan Durning, explained: “These two south west merchants have committed to progressing their business in the H&B Development Group. This continued growth shows the appetite amongst strong, stable, smaller merchants to take advantage of the benefits that buying group membership offers, not least excellent rebates, the best buying deals in the business, and support and mentorship from successful merchants who have trodden this path before.”
