News: Acorn grows with new distribution deal


Acorn Industrial Services, based at Hellaby Industrial Estate in Rotherham, has announced that it has secured a UK distributorship for the world leading manufacturer of ball and roller bearings to sell the NSK and RHP Bearings brands, as part of its growth and expansion plans.

NSK was looking for a well established partner that had the experience, systems and structure in place to introduce its brands into the distributor market place.

Des Spillings, sales director at Acorn Industrial Services, said: "This is exciting news for Acorn and for our customers. We were able to demonstrate to NSK that we had the capabilities to provide an authorised, traceable route for their products to enter the main distribution channels. As NSK is the world’s leading ball bearing manufacturer, we believe the brand has huge potential in the UK - and it is our plan to significantly increase their market share here."

The deal will see Acorn Industrial Services providing the full range of NSK and RHP products and services including Self Lube, Precision and Inch type bearings. Acorn will also be launching a new range of RHP spherical bearings to the market.

As part of the company's dedication to excellent service, customers will now receive the product either the same day or within 24 hours.

Spillings added: "We expect the distributorship with NSK will have a significant impact on our growth and we have made major investments in stock, system upgrades and brand awareness to enable us to do so.

Acorn holds the most extensive stockholding in the country, with over one million items in stock, stored on eight miles of shelving. The company has recently invested in purpose built 40,000 sq ft premises in Rotherham that are twice the size of its previous site and house its £4m worth of stock, plus its head office functions.
