About Morvan TradingOrigins: Morvan Trading Ltd was established in 1991, building on previous experience in the power cord market, originally to supply bulk cable at wholesale prices. We have since developed into the UK specialist supplier for UK and international mains power cables.
Born in the depths of a recession, limiting overheads and passing savings onto our customers is core to our philosophy. Starting with a telephone and pencil on a second hand desk, we’ve grown into two sites with 15,000 square feet of warehouses and storage.
We have seen, adapted to, and pre-empted many changes in the mains cable market over the years. We had the foresight to anticipate the 1994 requirement for products sold in the UK to have a factory-fitted UK plug, which caused vast demand for moulded BS1363 plugs in a very short period of time. The slow decline of UK manufacturing led to us becoming a high volume importer from Taiwan and then mainland China.
Recently, the rise of ‘disposable’ products and accessories (including their detachable powercords) has meant changing our stocking and shipping arrangements. We continually have to smooth fluctuating exchange rates and volatile raw copper prices.
