Radford Supplies Ltd was established 40 years ago as a Wholesaler of Fashion Jewellery. After a period of sustained growth we are now one of the UK’s largest and most established importers of distributors of fashion accessories; this includes jewellery, hair accessories, handbags, purses, scarves, belts and umbrellas.
We are enjoying great success with many leading multiple retailers across the UK, Ireland and Europe.
Suitable infrastructure to be able to cope with the volume of product: We have a 35000sq/ft warehouse, an extensive showroom and a newly built design pod. We have a team dedicated to working on our high street accounts including specialist buyers/product developers and a team of in-house designers. We are continually sourcing and designing product tailored to our customers’ requirements. We have a team committed to reviewing the market place and reacting to trends, thus enabling is to bring the latest fashion into our range in the shortest possible time. We have in-house facilities to re-card and repackage according to our customers’ requirements and of course our suppliers in the Far-East also offer this service to keep costs down for made to order (MTO) stock. We can also work free on board when required.
Quality and value: Our product is of high quality and excellent value. Our entire product is imported from the Far-East and India and is regularly inspected by an external body.
Up to the minute fashion trends: We are constantly predicting and reacting to the trends in the market. We visit the Far-East extensively throughout the seasons and travel to Europe and New York for inspiration.
