Flogas heats up its distribution with Campingaz deal
In a move to enhance its offering in the outdoor leisure sector, leading LPG supplier Flogas Britain has announced a new partnership with Campingaz in the UK. The deal, which commences 1st January 2019, will see Flogas distribute Campingaz’s popular range of portable, lightweight outdoor gas cylinders nationwide – servicing more than 2,000 outlets.
Owned by leading global consumer goods company Newell Brands, Campingaz is moving from its current distribution partnership with Calor to work alongside Flogas. The new five-year agreement will see Flogas distributing to a range of major dealers, retailers and national customers across the UK, via nine strategically placed depots.
Commenting on the new deal, Campingaz Commercial Director, Andrew Noble says: “We’re delighted to develop our relationship with Flogas. The extensive network that they offer, coupled with our commitment to great service, ensures that existing Campingaz dealers and stockists continue to receive the level of service they have come to expect, but also offers exciting opportunities to expand and explore new business channels together”.
Flogas Managing Director Lee Gannon adds: “We’ve been a customer of Campingaz in the past, so we know first hand the quality of their products. We’re delighted to now be working alongside them, and proud to be affiliated with such an iconic brand. We see this as just the start of a great commercial relationship with Campingaz – one which we’d like to see grow in the future.
“Although we’re particularly well known for our bulk LPG offering, cylinders form a major part of our business, and it’s an area that we’re dedicated to growing. This new partnership is an excellent fit for us. It provides a natural extension to our cylinder business and popular Gaslight offering, further broadening our customer proposition in the leisure sector. We look forward to adding Campingaz cylinders to the mix and gearing up to its key sales period in Spring next year.”
Campingaz cylinders are renowned for offering a safe, powerful and efficient source of fuel for a host of outdoor activities, powering camping stoves, portable barbecues and used on boats. They are filled and professionally maintained in Lyon, France, and from 2019 will be delivered to Flogas’s nine distribution hubs – which form part of the biggest LPG delivery network in the UK.
Flogas will distribute three formats of Campingaz cylinders, namely the R907 (the most popular size), along with smaller R904 and R901 models. Available in 16,000 stockists across 30 European countries, Campingaz cylinders can be easily refilled, making them the perfect solution for taking abroad.
