PJA Distribution won the High Growth Business of the Year Award sponsored by Dell in 2015

PJA Distribution, a mobile phone accessories producer and distributor based in Teesside, has enjoyed rapid growth and its commitment to excellence has seen them win a host of awards.

Their ambitious approach and decisive decision making has seen them go from a one man operation selling phone cases in a bedroom to an industry leader employing 75 staff and boasting a £7m turnover within the space of 4 years. They despatch thousands of products across the globe from their UK-based warehouse with full support from a dedicated customer service team, and sell products across multiple marketplaces and their retail website.

International Growth

International expansion has been a key element in the growth of the company, with a large percentage of revenue coming from International sales and products now shipped to over 20 countries worldwide. This success has been founded on tried and tested methods applied decisively.

They always aim to be first to market with new devices and continue to monitor trends and their competitors to ensure they have the best product range available. They are also looking for ways to expand their product range outside of their key areas so as not to limit their growth potential to one sector.

Recruitment Policy

An important aspect in achieving this and winning the award is their fearless recruitment policy, employing a full in-house team of digital marketing experts – one that is bolstered by their links to Teesside University and their ability to attract highly-talented individuals that bring fresh ideas and energy to the company.

Winning a Chamber Award

Martin Powton, Head of Ecommerce at PJA Distribution said: “Winning the Chamber Business Award for High Growth Business of the Year was great recognition for the hard work the company has put in over the last few years. The award win has increased the company’s profile allowing us to expand in to new opportunities and drive further growth”
