What do you get when you add a mayor and a 7ft town crier to BEW Electrical Distributors? A very successful branch opening.

When it came to the official opening of a new business venture in Shrewsbury, who better to cut the ribbon than the town’s own Mayor, Cllr Peter Nutting? 

Shortly after his arrival at BEW’s new branch, which was announced by Shrewsbury’s 7ft Town Crier, Martin Wood, the mayor was more than happy to perform his duty, chat with local electricians, suppliers, and the BEW team on Friday 18th January 2019.

“As the previous owner of a sports shop in Shrewsbury, I understand the difficulties faced by small businesses, so when I was invited to open a new local branch for BEW Electrical Distributors, I was delighted to offer my support,” said the mayor. 

“It was a real honour to cut the ribbon and welcome a BEW branch to Shrewsbury’s map.”

The event, hosted by the BEW management team of Dan Wornell and Will Pablos, was a huge success and attracted much attention in the local area. 

Not only did the free food and drink prove to be a massive hit with the contractors, but with in-store stands and demonstration vans from suppliers Scolmore Group, Hager, Armeg Tools and ROBUS Lighting, BEW Shrewsbury has had a cracking start.  

The old building housing BEW’s new branch was truly transformed during a detailed fit-out. The premises now feature acontemporary trade counter, modern offices and plenty of storage. Their staff are friendly, knowledgeable and always go the extra mile for their customers.

Dan, Will and all of their team are available Monday to Friday from 7.30am till 5pm.
