New finance options designed to change how tradesmen fund projects
NRG Store, the fast-growing online retail portal designed to service both trade and public, has announced that it will have up to 30,000 products and services on sale via the site by the end of the year.
In addition to this, a new partnership with TradeWorkz will provide a Professional “Handy-Man” service through NRG Store and will launch early next year.
Patrick Hogan, Group managing director of NRG Store said: “We are delighted with how NRG Store is progressing. We wanted to set out to create something local but global at the same time. We want to bring the world to our customers and support businesses at the same time. We are very focused on developing relationships with businesses around Ireland. One aspect of NRG Store is offering customers an online platform where previously they had none. Murdoff kitchens, is one example. A local business that had no ecommerce site before now and will be selling online through NRG Store and and bring their products to people around the world.”
NRG Store is the first on-line sales portal in Ireland for the construction and plumbing sectors. It has been billed as the “Amazon for the industry” and offers thousands of products from retailers specialising in home and commercial improvement retail.
NRG Store, a division of Sea Box Group provides Ireland’s first all inclusive click-and-delivery service for anyone interested in construction, renovation or home improvements. €1 million has been invested into the development of the NRG Store website and app. NRG Store’s solutions have been created following consultation with tradesmen across Ireland to identify how deliveries can impact efficiency.
Patrick Hogan said: “As a professional you want to reduce costs, improve your image and grow your business. Through the NRG Pro section on the website, we offer support for builders from purchase through to install. We offer multiple shipping options including just-in-time and direct delivery to sites across the country.”
NRG Store has plans to expand quickly into other markets in EMEA, supported by its parent company Sea Box Group.
NRG Store has partnered with a number of finance houses to offer those in the trade a series of finance options, providing real working capital to make progress in business happen.
