Angling Direct, the UK's largest fishing tackle supplier, kicks off the season with the opening of a new European headquarters and warehouse in Venlo, the Netherlands! Angling is the order of the day as the pandemic has accelerated this development worldwide!
With over nine million visitors to its websites annually and an average of more than 24,000 transactions per week in its stores, Angling Direct is by far the largest omnichannel retailer of fishing tackle in the UK. With the brand new branch in the south-east of the Netherlands, the company is flying the flag on the continent. In addition to the already active, international websites for European customers (Germany, France, Netherlands), the European headquarters stands for the philosophy of a culture of local support to reach and support local fishing communities even more directly.
Optimal Customer Experience – Against the Background of Brexit
Brexit has confronted the company, as well as the entire British trade, with numerous logistical challenges. Angling Direct has therefore decided to cover all additional costs incurred by customs duties and hidden fees so that the customer experience is not affected in any way. In order to ensure the best possible service, especially for many loyal customers in Europe, the focus on a European headquarters was a logical step.
Bringing Service Closer to the Customers
Angling Direct gives top priority to customer service. The company is excited about the opportunities that come with the opening of the new European headquarters. The ultimate goal of Angling Direct is to offer anglers the greatest possible choice and optimal support both online and in the shop. Especially due to the pandemic, many people have either rediscovered their joy of fishing or rediscovered it. The Angling Direct team in sales and customer service will be happy to help - no matter whether experienced professionals or absolute beginners ask for advice.
Europe's First Port of Call for Fishing Tackle
This puts the British company on a direct course to become Europe's first port of call for fishing tackle. Contemporary digital content and quick access to thousands of high-quality fishing tackles, which in many cases are delivered on the same day, make Angling Direct the number one partner in all matters of angling.
All For The Love of Fishing
The love of fishing is at the heart of this company. This is best demonstrated by the team's tireless commitment to supporting customers in all aspects of their individual fishing experiences every step of the way. From the warehouse to the accounting department, the IT department, marketing to management - fishing enthusiasts make up the team.
Fun & Coaching Combined - the Angling Community
In addition to the constantly optimized, extremely customer-oriented service, Angling Direct also stands for an inspiring community sense that appeals to all aspects of fishing. Through its world-class websites and diverse social media channels, Angling Direct reaches a steadily growing number of anglers in the UK and Europe.
Angling Direct picks up each angler individually where they stand with their experience and skills. The magic words are encouragement, coaching and support. Angling Direct pursues a long-term strategy based on trust and customer satisfaction. Acting responsibly to promote the benefits and sustainability of fisheries remains the top priority.
