We are pleased to announce that Bearmach has scooped the title of Ecommerce Business of the Year at this year’s Welsh Business Awards! The awards ceremony, hosted by the South Wales Chamber of Commerce, was held as a celebration of the achievements of several businesses in the South Wales area and was an evening to remember for the Bearmach team.
Bearmach has traditionally operated as a wholesaler and for decades only sold into the trade market. In 2017, the company decided to forge a new path by opening an online retail channel. We were the first of our kind to do this among our competitors and the transformation exceeded expectations. Two years later, Bearmach has a new Customer Services department, Marketing team and ecommerce website, giving retail customers hands-on care and valuable content - everything we need to work on our own Land Rovers with the best parts, accessories and guidance available to us.
We now employ 130 colleagues from Caerphilly and nearby areas in South Wales and we have built a strong market presence in our 61 years of operation. We boast a product range of over 18,000 parts and accessories from the leading brands in the aftermarket Land Rover community, including Bearmach’s own brand of product. The Bearmach label even comes with a 3 year warranty, which is longer than the market average due to our faith in the knowledge and experience of our in-house Technical Team.
Richard Taberner, Director of Marketing & Ecommerce, says “It’s a great privilege to have won Ecommerce Business of the Year. Since launching the e-commerce channel in 2017 we have kept adapting to offer the best service we can and now have customers in over 165 countries. Winning this award is down to the hard work from each employee and it’s great to be able to celebrate this win together.”
