Inspira Trading, a delivered wholesaler specialising in household and toiletry products and OTC medicines, has joined Landmark Wholesale.
In doing so, its managing director Gary Rosen has re-established a link with the group that he once had with another business, Vitality, based in Tottenham, north London. He has also been associated with Nisa-Today’s.
Rosen set up Inspira Trading with business partner Samantha Bristow (both pictured) in 2009. Operating from a 10,000 sq ft leased building in Arlesey, Beds, the wholesaler increased takings by almost £1 million to nearly £5 million last year.
Rosen told Cash & Carry Management: “I am making use of every inch of space and desperately want to expand. I am currently negotiating to double the area by taking over the vacant building next door.”
Inspira, which sells to other wholesalers, larger independents and pharmacy distributors in the UK, stretching from Aberdeen to Plymouth, also has a thriving export business to countries including Syria, Hong Kong and Ireland. Deliveries are made using a third-party transport firm. Provision is also made for local businesses who want to order and then pick up the goods themselves.
Landmark finance director Andrew Thewlis said: “We are looking forward to helping Inspira Trading develop their business and continue their recent rapid growth in non-food.”
