It’s a big birthday year for D.A.D and Montpellier!

D.A.D and Montpellier Domestic Appliances are both celebrating milestone birthdays this year – D.A.D turns 30 years old and Montpellier is 10!

Both companies are marking the occasions by hosting a series of free training sessions and events throughout the year to support their customers with business growth.

Established in 1992 by Adrian Gillman, D.A.D is a family business and one of the largest distributors of domestic appliances in the UK. The company is recognised throughout the industry as a one stop shop, renowned for its strong relationships built with customers over the years.

Montpellier was founded in 2012 by the Gillman family to create a desirable range of stylish and affordable appliances. The company’s passion and innovation has ensured growth year on year, celebrating the best year of sales to date in 2021 and winning a hat trick of awards for Best New Product and Best Sales Representatives at the 2021 ERT Awards!

Speaking of the training events, Zonnie Burton, Marketing Manager for D.A.D and Montpellier, said: “The shift to e-commerce has accelerated rapidly over the last couple of years and it is easy to feel left behind or overwhelmed by what businesses should be doing to keep up and maintain a presence online.

“We are passionate about supporting our customers and helping to build their confidence in these areas, including Google Ads, Google Analytics, SEO and social media.

“It made sense to offer a series of workshops throughout the year with experts, tailored to what our customers need and ask for, in line with our anniversary celebrations this year. It’s a way of us giving something back and showing that we will always do our best to support them.”

In addition to the companies’ own events, there are also opportunities to attend exclusive training days with brands including Miele and Bertazzoni, with more to follow.
