Phoenix 2 Retail, headquartered in Hartlepool and specialising in vape distribution, has claimed victory in both the large business turnover and overall turnover categories at VelociTees 2024. Their impressive escalation from £4.5m to an overwhelming £90m in yearly turnover, a remarkable growth rate of 1,911%, has been crucial to their success.
The VelociTees 2024 ceremony, hosted by Tees Business in conjunction with the distinguished accounting and business consultancy Azets, celebrates the region’s most rapidly growing enterprises in terms of turnover and employment growth. Phoenix 2 Retail stood out, securing wins in both of the hotly contested categories.
The company, under the forward-thinking leadership of Chris Kelly, its founder and CEO, has taken a unique path in the vaping industry. Opting to partner with existing brands rather than owning one, Phoenix 2 Retail has achieved placements in key retailers and supermarkets, distinguishing them from rivals and spearheading their unmatched success.
Commenting on the awards, Kelly remarked, “We tried to do something a bit different to what others have done in the sector – we don’t own a brand, we work with brands to get them into main retailers and supermarkets. Sometimes, it’s not until you step back and realise it’s an incredible story. Some days, you feel like you’re in the trench and keeping the machine turning. But we’ve won these awards, and we go back to the office now, go again and keep trying to deliver for our customers.”
These accolades from VelociTees affirm Phoenix 2 Retail’s leadership in the field and their extraordinary growth journey. Driven by Kelly’s dedication to customer satisfaction and his determination to push the envelope, the company is poised for continued triumphs.
Phoenix 2 Retail’s significant turnover growth and their innovative approach to the marketing of vaping products have led to their resounding success at VelociTees 2024. Their relentless pursuit of excellence positions them to explore new frontiers and maintain their commitment to delivering outstanding experiences to their valued clients.
