Polder Opens UK Sales, Warehousing Operations

Polder Housewares has opened its operations in the United Kingdom. The company will offer product warehousing and a full sales and customer service capability to the UK wholesale market beginning in January.

The company’s warehousing and customer service team will be based in the south of London, in addition to management and sales agent coverage for all UK markets.

“We are excited to offer the UK consumer our full line of innovative products for the home,” said Calvin Scott, president of Polder. “The company’s expansion into the United Kingdom is a key component of our ongoing growth strategy, and is the next step in becoming a global brand.”

Currently, Polder serves the U.S. through its warehouse facilities in Oxford, CT, and Los Angeles, CA. The company also supplies Canada, Mexico and multiple other countries through exclusive distribution. Polder’s new UK operation will allow the company to sell to retailers in the United Kingdom and across Europe, company officials said.

“Our full-service expansion into the United Kingdom was a natural progression for the company, building on the solid market success we’ve had with several UK retailers over the past few years,” said Kerry Cooper, gm with Polder.
