The team from leading electrical manufacturing company, Hager, has reached the midway mark of their epic tour across the UK.
HagerGang On Tour has seen the Hager UK team cover the entire nation – from north to south and east to west – connecting, collaborating and celebrating with local communities of electrical wholesalers, installers and contractors.
The tour, which commenced on 17th July, has been ongoing for the past <three> weeks. Their fully branded merch store has been travelling to each of the 40 wholesalers, with the Hager team being available to offer valuable technical and sales support, as well as gifting free merchandise along the way.
A spokesperson from Hager UK says: “HagerGang On Tour has been a fantastic and unique opportunity for us to connect face-to-face and develop our already well-established relationships with our loyal community of over 20,000 contractors nationwide.
“At each location, we’ve been met by professionals who regularly use Hager products and those that are curious about our latest solutions. We’re only halfway through but we’ve already had so many interesting and insightful one-to-one conversations with our customers, with an abundance of feedback and positive reviews.”
Throughout the summer, the Hager UK merch store will be visiting 40 different wholesalers in 40 different locations, with the tour concluding on 6th September. In exchange for any Hager products purchased at a nominated wholesaler, customers qualify for free HagerGang merchandise, such as limited-edition t-shirts, sunglasses and Hager’s highly sought-after blue screwdrivers.
“All of our products are solely designed with installers in mind, and so having ample chance to discuss in-person and provide demos of our latest products, such as AFDDs, has been incredibly valuable. Not only can we ensure installers are using them exactly as intended, but we can better understand what our community needs and how we can continue to provide the very best service.”
Darren Wolvey, Project Director at Ample Power Ltd, visited the HagerGang merch store when it visited Links Electrical Supplies in Shrewsbury and explained: “At Ample Power, we’re proud to fit Hager products. Assured in the knowledge that in the event of a breakdown for any customer across the UK, we can promptly purchase it from local stockists, saving both costs for our client and our engineers’ time. While we regularly engage with Hager UK on social media, the HagerGang On Tour was a great opportunity to connect with the team face-to-face and receive additional support.”
