A North Shields business has secured the UK rights to distribute Blaupunkt’s new gardening power tools range.

BLAUPUNKT Tools, which specialises in multi-channel retailing, is working with the German electronics manufacturer to launch its new range of gardening equipment in to the UK.

BLAUPUNKT Tools has worked in partnership with the manufacturer to develop the new gardening product range which it is now introducing in to the UK market before expanding overseas.

Initially selling directly via its own online store, the BLAUPUNKT Tools team is also looking to partner with UK retailers.

Dave Crowder, chief technical officer for BLAUPUNKT Tools, said: “Blaupunkt is hugely respected around the world for its quality products and its new tools range is no exception.

“BLAUPUNKT Tools is offering all customers three years’ warranty with all their products.

“My business partner and I have worked with the Blaupunkt team in previous roles and we knew they were a brand we would be more than happy to be associated with so when the opportunity arose to partner with them on this exciting project we jumped at the chance.

“Blaupunkt has the engineering know-how, but with years of experience in multi- channel retailing, we have the expertise to take the product to market and we are confident the range will be very well received.”

The initial range is available at www.bp-tools.co.uk
