Taking on their customer base means we will be able to further increase both our product range and geographical market, our two most important business objectives.”


As of 31 March 2018, the Alex Reid business will cease to trade and Lynx will handle the supply of general consumables to all Alex Reid’s current customers, initially adding sales of £2m. Prior to this date Alex Reid will be operating as normal, supported by Lynx, and all current customers will be contacted with updates on the changes.


Stuart Fullerton, Alex Reid General Manager, said: “Choosing the right partner for this change has been a carefully considered process but in the end we felt Lynx were the perfect service led organisation to take on the Alex Reid customers who we know will be in very good hands.”
