Edmundson and their subsidiary companies – Electric Center, EWL and Lockwell – are big players in the electrical wholesale world. They dominate more than 10% of the entire UK market with their £1.1 billion group turnover. But what makes the Edmundson Group so successful and what attracts top industry professionals to build long-term careers with them?
Having worked closely with them for over 8 years now, we’ve seen plenty of reasons for their success:
They have a highly decentralised operating philosophy
Each location (profit centre) is run as an autonomous business. This means that each Business/Profit Centre Manager has a huge amount of autonomy and is responsible for personnel, sales, inventory control, warehousing, distribution and administration.
Forget the red tape because Managers can run their locations like they would their own business. You can stock the products you want, select your team members and reap the rewards of your efforts – which brings us to our next point…
They offer great rewards
On top of a competitive salary, Edmundson Group employees receive uncapped annual bonuses – a share of the profit that their location makes. They also receive a prestigious car, mobile, laptop, healthcare and optional membership to an outstanding pension scheme.
They have a great reputation
The Edmundson Group is extremely well established. They develop long-lasting relationships with their customers and their management style allows them to quickly adapt and tailor their products to local and regional suppliers.
Nurturing company culture
Unsurprisingly, Edmundson’s staff retention is excellent as they pride themselves on looking after their people. They favour promotion from within as they invest in training and development of their talented professionals. The business is built on solid relationships and every team member’s voice is heard.
The Edmundson Group is continuously growing and acquiring new businesses. Their most recent acquisition, Lockwell, are a large, lucrative and expanding network of branches. They are looking for experienced, driven and entrepreneurial Managers to take ownership of new and existing locations.
If you want to contribute to the company’s success while developing a long-term career, and making a lot of money for yourself along the way, this could be a great opportunity for you.
