Case Study

Pennine Leisure Supplies

Pennine Leisure Supplies (PLS) was founded in 1981 and is a wholesaler into the UK caravan dealer network supplying service departments and accessories, offering everything from daily essentials to bespoke repair and replacement products. Director Wayne Boyd explains how Qualkem helped PLS expand their product range and retailer base.

There are no toilet cleaning fluids more capable of controlling the dosage as easily and effectively as the 40-shot range

We had a gap in our product range of cleaning products, in that we didn’t offer any toilet cleaning fluids. For us, no manufacturer could adequately address problems of poor packaging and spillages. One of our retailer clients approached us with the Qualkem range asking if we could stock it. At the time that customer wasn’t able to buy direct in the quantities required.  


We met with Ian and Ivan and were impressed by the range whether blue, pink or trigger sprays. The self-dosing mechanism on the 40-shot bottle means it’s very difficult to over dispense, and makes leakages almost impossible. It’s clear they spent time creating a product that was uncompromising in terms of quality and packaging.


The environmental status of cleaning products is very important to us at Pennine Leisure Supplies, so it impresses me that none of the 40-shot range is toxic in any concentration.


It’s not just about the products.

I have yet to meet any organisation, of any size, that is more approachable, reactive and proactive in their mindset

They really understand the end user, the consumer, and know the importance of a quick turnaround from order to delivery. The service from Qualkem is perfect for a wholesaler of our scale. They are happy to hold stock for us to call off as required which allows us to make the best use of cost savings and our own capacity.

The success of the relationship has been shared by both companies. When we started talking to Qualkem, we put their products into four of our customers. In less than three years we have now expanded our distribution to more than 200 retailers. I can honestly say that our national sales team of five could not have achieved this without the knowledge and back up from Qualkem.
