Everything you need to know about supplying The Workplace Depot
The great relationship we have with our suppliers is integral to the success of our business, so naturally we won’t work with just anyone. If you have a product range that would complement our current assortment and you can offer the level of service our customers have grown to expect, then we’d love to hear from you via email on firstname.lastname@example.org
But before you email, take a look below at some of the information you’ll need to know in advance.
We produce a large catalogue annually where your products will be displayed. A marketing contribution will be required which goes towards the cost of its production. This catalogue will not only be used by our own customers but will be produced for all our distributors displaying their own branding.
Your products will also be displayed on The Workplace Depot website and the websites of all our distributors.
Our catalogues are signed-off annually in December, for publication in February. In order to hit these deadlines, we’ll need your confirmed product list, agreed prices, images, text and details of customer service/technical contacts, no later than September. Sadly, missing these deadlines could lead to your products not featuring in the catalogue.
