Working Together.

AWEBB is a progressive, ambitious and forward-thinking purchasing consortium.

ElectraCentre Distribution

Owned by the members, and exclusively for the members, ElectraCentre Distribution is akin to having an extra 10,000 sq. feet of warehouse space and holding another £800k worth of valuable stock.

KNOWLEDGE : TEAMWORK : STRENGTH

All our members are equal and what this means is that we strive to provide negotiation which every member receives the benefits from.

Vision Statement

In 2025 AWEBB will be the UK’s leading electrical Purchasing Consortium, providing unrivalled commercial performance for our membership and have a reputation for providing excellent networking, training and innovation that delivers real improvements for our members.

 

AWEBB is an independent negotiation body providing members with unrivalled security and confidence that they are part of a cohesive team that is working toward a common goal with shared challenges.With over 200 branches across the UK and Ireland with many original members being part of our group for over 40 years we are proud of our heritage.

A primary function of any buying group is to use its collective strength as a tool to negotiate the best possible deal for its members. This usually revolves around price. However, at AWEBB we believe it goes much further than this. The close relationships we value with our partners also ensures that AWEBB members remain at the forefront of new and emerging technologies, enabling the members to be quick off the mark when new products are brought to market.

Mission Statement

Working diligently with supplier partners, AWEBB support and empower our members to work together creating a group that delivers an ever-growing commercial strength.

Testimonials

Andy Johnson, Chairman of AWEBB and MD of LEW

‘These are challenging yet rewarding times and AWEBB continues to evolve to support our growing network of businesses.

Our approach is to improve results through collaboration and consolidation. Provide competitive access to all major manufacturers. Develop strategies to continually deliver results for the membership. Connect members for mutual benefit.

Being part of AWEBB has significantly helped my business to grow and prosper and I am confident that it will continue to deliver benefits for LEW and its membership for many years to come.

It is a pleasure to be part of the AWEBB organisation.

Matthew Bell, MD of the Oldfield Group

Oldfield’s joined AWEBB 3 years ago, and I can safely say this has been one of the best decisions we have made!!.

The professionalism of the group was what attracted us to AWEBB, and this is reflected in our fellow members. We’ve benefited from the regular meetings AWEBB hold, which doesn’t just include principals but all levels of staff. Automatic membership of the EDA through the AWEBB membership has allowed us access to the Electrical Wholesale apprenticeship scheme, our first employee has just finished his first year and we’ll definitely be using it again.

The commercial returns from joining AWEBB have been enormous. Our buying capacity has increased and the returns through commercial agreements have been staggering. Oldfield’s turnover and profitably have improved in the last 3 years and I’m sure this isn’t coincidental.
