Our fantastic client, Samedeal was founded on the ethos that everyone should be able to access the same value DIY and building products as large organisations with bulk buying power.
They have been working with Jordan Daykin at Grip It Fixings since earlier this year, selling his unique and UK patented designs, Grip It Fixings. Tonight Jordan appeared on BBC2’s Dragons’ Den, pitching his business to the investors to enable further expansion. He secured an £80,000 investment for 25% of his business, bartering with, and eventually shaking the hand of Debra Meaden – check out the clip for more on these fantastic products!
With a background in local authority procurement, Samedeal MD Pete Smith, used his knowledge and expertise to set up contracts with a range of manufacturers, negotiating great deals with big discounts for customers, without any loss of quality. The company sells a range of products on its website from kitchens and paints to German electric radiators, and of course the Grip It fixings.
Pete said: “Samedeal is a small family firm looking to provide our customers with the best deals, and in most cases with free delivery.
“When we met with Jordan and spoke to him about the Grip It concept, we knew we had to make these available to our customer base. This product could revolutionise the way we secure heavy items to dry lined and plasterboard walls, typically found in new-build and refurbished properties.
“As a former builder myself, I understand the failings of other plasterboard fixings that are on the market. Using Grip It fixings can save both time and money, and gives you the peace of mind that the fixing has been designed to securely hold heavy items like kitchen wall units, radiators, flat screen TVs, shelves and curtain rails.
“Once people see Jordan’s Grip It Fixing demonstration on Dragons’ Den, we expect interest in both our websites to rise dramatically, and have done everything we can in preparation to enable us to efficiently manage volume orders.”
