Catering products supplier heads south with first London outpost


Catering industry supplier The IG Group is to open a new central London showroom, marking the next step of its continued development programme.

The County Durham-based firm will open at Islington’s prestigious Business Design Centre, showcasing many brands including those exclusively available through the company.

The family-owned business has supplied glassware, cookware, ceramics, crockery, knives and a whole range of other products to a rapidly-expanding customer base for more than forty years.

Its client list includes some of the country’s leading pub chains, restaurants and bars under both its ‘exclusive’ and ‘established’ brands.

The firm’s portfolio of exclusive brands for which it is the sole UK distributor has consistently grown and now includes RAK, Sango, Heritage, Casa Alegre, Minster cutlery and Metropolitan glassware.

Stephen Hoey, The IG Group’s CEO, believes that the move to grow southwards comes at a perfect time, following the recent appointment of experienced sales manager Shane Cuthbert to cover that part of the country.

“We are already getting a very positive response from distributors and wholesalers through Shane. And now we will have a central showroom for them to see our products on display in what is a fantastic location. This is all part of our long term growth plans to strengthen and consolidate our presence in London and the south.”
