International Sales, Marketing and Supply Outsourcing
Intamarca acts as an outsourced sales office in the UK for foreign manufacturers and brand owners. We help our customers break into and grow their business in a market worth £30bn at retail level alone.
UK retailers need someone that understands them, their way of working, their processes, and expectations. Whilst larger multinational companies already have a direct relation or offices in the UK, other smaller, yet still competitive manufacturers and brand owners struggle to break in or rely on traditional agents.
We offer the presence and knowledge of the local market and customers to manufacturers whilst their financial relation can remain directly with the retailer. The producer or brand owner retains more control and the retailer knows they are getting a better price whilst still retaining the service levels and treatment they are accustomed to.
Outsourcing these services provides a better value than setting up a UK office or employing remote national account managers and all the related costs these imply. A local presence allows better responsiveness to customers requirements and helps build a direct relation for our clients.
By aligning to UK retail trends and standards, manufacturers and brand owners can also grow their business in other markets as well.
