Importing Products from the East Can Be Beneficial to Economies and Customers Alike

CHEADLE, England, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

It has long been common knowledge that plenty of British retailers and wholesalers
produce their products on lands far away from the British Isles. In fact, it is no secret
that imports have so-called ‘swamped’ the British high street during the last 20 years.
According to statistics
[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2118427/Is-ANYTHING-youre-wearing-Britain.html ]
reported in the Daily Mail, in 2011 the UK imported GBP12.5 billion more clothing than it
exported. Whilst there has been a flurry of negative media surrounding importing goods
from abroad, namely that the goods are poorly made and shoddy and the employees making the
items are widely exploited, the positive effects of making products abroad and bringing
them to the UK are comparatively overlooked. Take, for example, British Wholesales
[http://www.britishwholesales.co.uk ], a well-established household textile and export
company that supplies household textiles to a domestic and overseas market, which despite
be located in a leafy suburb of Cheshire, has a factory in Pakistan where many of its
products are made.

In producing quality products for the home, including bed, bathroom and kitchen linen,
salon towels, quilts and pillows, textile products for hotels and health clubs as well as
nursing and care homes, British Wholesales’ products are a far cry from the inferior ‘made
in China’ reputation many imported goods have, either fairly or unfairly, been attached

Take, for example, the products this Cheshire-based wholesaler provides to hotels and
health clubs. It is safe to say that hotels and health clubs need to maintain
exceptionally high standards, particularly in the fragile financial climate whereby
competition to satisfy clients has never been so high. The bathrobes, bed linen and face
cloths British Wholesales supply can only be described as being of the most exquisite
quality that comprise the most stylish and up-to-the-minute designs, a long way from the
shabby image the products made in factories abroad have often been unfairly tarnished

Aside from many factories in the likes of Pakistan and India producing some high
quality, innovative and wholly stylish products, by importing products from abroad,
British wholesalers can keep prices competitive, which has a subsequent positive effect to
the economy as a whole.

Through lower labour and premises costs in countries like Pakistan, India and China,
western wholesalers can maintain international competitiveness. Not only does maintaining
competitiveness reduce the likelihood of a retailer going into administration, thus
proving to be beneficial to the economies and employment status in both Britain and the
country where the products are produced, but it also keeps consumers satisfied as they are
paying less for quality goods.

It is fair to surmise that British Wholesales is proof that producing goods from a
factory in Pakistan and importing them to Britain can maintain quality, competitiveness,
jobs and customer satisfaction.

British Wholesales [http://www.britishwholesales.co.uk ] prides itself in producing
high quality textiles that ensures that its customers are consistently satisfied and
providing hoteliers and retailers will the chance to excel in today’s increasingly
competitive marketplace.
