Rugged manufacturer aiming for growth after owners’ purchase
Bullitt Group has appointed Eurostar Global Electronics as an official distribution partner in the UK.
The rugged manufacturer and licensee for the CAT and Land Rover brands is celebrating its 10th year in business. It is returning to revenue growth since founders Colin Batt, Dave Floyd and Richard Wharton bought it back from private equity firm Exponent.
Eurostar Global turned over more than £89 million in 2018 and also acts as UK distributor for Avenir Telecom’s Energizer phones. It recently announced a partnership with leasing solutions specialist Lease Telecom.
Bullitt phones will be available at Eurostar from early October.
Eurostar Global managing director Peter Carnall commented:
“2019 continues to be another record year for Eurostar. Investment throughout 2018 in both the management team and core services has seen Eurostar build a solid presence with a loyal customer base across the UK. We are focused on building partnerships of value and delivering more to channel for the brands that choose to work with us and we welcome Bullitt Group to the Eurostar portfolio.”
Eurostar’s head of commercial and vendor management Steve Hankey added: “Having worked with Bullitt Group since its very beginnings I am incredibly proud and excited to be welcoming them to the Eurostar family. Bullitt has a well established and diverse product portfolio that appeals to many sectors. The whole team are eagerly looking forward to working with Bullitt to help drive the brand even further.”
