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 reported in the Daily Mail, in 2011 the UK imported £12.5 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, 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 with.

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 with.

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 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.
