Professional and decisive

At Brands, we combine the warm geniality of a small-scale family business with the professionalism of an energetic and dynamic company. With its head office and central warehouse in Deurne, Brands distributes batteries, lighting and torch-related products in the Benelux countries, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

To be better

How can we constantly improve on what we were doing yesterday? A question that everyone at Brands is constantly asking themselves. This is what characterises the energy and enthusiasm with which we constantly strive to improve our performance - each and every day. This is how we are able to keep pace with a rapidly changing and demanding world. Our core values are integrity, ownership and teamwork. Click here for more information.

Integrity

The common thread that runs through our relationships is mutual trust and respect. In short, we treat others the way we want others to treat us. We always keep our word and are known for our honesty and trustworthiness in everything that we do.

Ownership

What needs to be done and in what order of priority? Brands employees are highly proactive and willingly take the initiative and responsibility. Goal-oriented action! We constantly ask ourselves: 'How can we constantly improve on what we were doing yesterday?'

Teamwork

We are not a group of soloists, but a strong cohesive ensemble that collectively supports common goals. We love tackling issues with all seriousness but also realise the importance of having fun along the way, of learning from our mistakes and of celebrating successes together.
