DISTRIBUTORS from 20 countries across five continents descended on Rillington, near Malton, last week for cable cleat manufacturer Ellis’ distributor conference, that is held every three years.

The company exports its world renowned electrical safety products around the world.

Richard Shaw, managing director of Ellis, said: “The two day conference features a programme of activity that allows us to showcase everything from new products to company developments and marketing plans; and gives every distributor an opportunity to do the same.

“The main benefit though comes from having two full days during which time the incredibly diverse and wonderfully widespread Ellis family is together. New distributors get to appreciate just what they are part of too."

Ellis currently has a global network of distributors, a business development manager for Latin America, and a full-time export team in the UK.

This network ensures it has local, specialised representation in all of its key export markets, and has helped the company become firmly established as the cable cleat industry’s global leader and market expert.
