About

ESA Sales was formed in 2017 with the vision of providing a bespoke service, assisting brands with entry into UK retail channels. With over 30 years of senior sales experience, founder Chris Hoyle could see an opportunity to implement a completely fresh methodology which has ensured that his business model is appropriate and relevant in today’s market.

• Account based operations in order to cement relationships with buyers, providing ‘front office’ solutions in sales, marketing and logistics
• Complementary portfolio to maximise the strength of the offering to retail partners
• JIT logistics solutions, low MOQs and opportunities for direct despatch
• Active in all UK routes to market – matching brands with appropriate retail opportunities

This successful formula has seen the business grow at an exceptional pace as ESA Sales can offer a great alternative to the traditional distributor model.

With their combined experience in sales, marketing and product sourcing, the team aims to deliver on their ethos of ‘Better Together’ for their retail and brand partners.
