February issue of EW out now!

All change!

Welcome to the February 2022 issue of Electrical Wholesaler.

The new year often marks a new direction for both individuals and businesses – and this has been borne out by the number of new staff appointments sent in to us at EW throughout the month. Hopefully this demonstrates a confidence in the year to come that was, perhaps, lacking in 2021. We had so many that we dedicated a whole page of news to them! Turn to page 23 to take a look at the industry’s movers as we move further into 2022.

Our cover story for this month features Scolmore offshoot Ovia, now entering its third year of trading as an independent lighting organisation. Continuing to invest in new products and solutions for the professional electrical contract market, Ovia has launched its third and biggest catalogue of products to date. Take a look at page 10 to find out more.

Elsewhere in this issue, David Mattin, managing director of Dietzel Univolt, shares his thoughts on the possibilities of the year to come: “Suppliers must remain agile, flexible and responsive in order to meet the needs of a fluctuating market and wider environment, exacerbated by a booming construction sector.” Read more on page 20.

On page 25, meanwhile, National Ventilation’s Christian Rehn explains the many benefits of intelligent fans when it comes to bathroom refurbishment.

Plus, as always, our regular news, views, product and installation features from market-leading businesses across the sector, including pieces from Red Arrow on fire and safety, ESP on security and access, and Scolmore on wiring accessories.
