Case Study 2 – Kitchen cabinet manufacturer


Following the demise of a leading national kitchen/furniture retailer XPD approached the overseas supplier of kitchen cabinets with an outline proposal to generate cash from the £2m+ redundant stock.


XPD visited the client in Italy to scope the project :
•Full stock profile assessment with costing and specification prepared
•Set up a planned stock movement overland from Italy to UK
• Selected the appropriate channels to sell through the goods – online auction site, UK based telesales team and eBay store
• Built base of bidders and buyers securing significant bulk sales


• Generated over £250k for the client from the redundant stock
• Strong return versus cost being delivered
• Additional target stock now being sold for the client by XPD
• Client has recommended XPD to other Italian manufacturers
