With triple digit growth in Great Britain, ManoMano is launching a brand new service to make the lives of UK professionals simpler.

The company’s latest innovation will be available this April and it’s called ‘Manomano Pro’.First launched in France in 2019, where 1 in 4 construction workers are now signed up, ManoMano Pro’s founders have ambitious plans for the platform to soon represent 50% of their total UK business.

Hailed as the UK’s first DIY marketplace specifically created for traders, the platform offers over 1M products from over 4,900 sellers.

With 40% of the brand’s total revenue now coming from outside France, founders Philippe de Chanville and Christian Raisson know that growing their presence in DIY-centric markets like the UK is key to continued, strong brand growth.

By launching in the UK, ManoManoPro addresses a potential market of €65 billion, driven by more than one million trade companies with fewer than 10 employees, who currently rely on traditional physical bricks & mortar stores for their business .

The marketplace platform delivers a number of best-in-class features for the UK’s trade and construction workers:

  • Bespoke product offer according to a trader’s specific business area
  • Orders delivered straight to your projects or renovation sites: find your products anytime, anywhere via our online catalogue with 24h delivery on key items
  • Expert advice through a team of specialists available by telephone, email or online chat from Monday to Friday (8am-6pm)

Philippe de Chanville, ManoMano co-founder announced:

“The UK market is of huge importance as we build our brand throughout Europe.  With a digital-savvy population of traders, we hope that this platform becomes their back-pocket go-to for all their tools and materials in the future. Our ambition is to continue to grow market share in the UK and for the Pro platform to soon represent 50% of our business.”

The brand’s USP is that it has been created for the trade, by the trade and hopes to give workers back an hour of their day, every day – a reassuring commitment considering 60% of UK traders are predicting 2022 to be their busiest yet. 

With COVID-19 significantly accelerating the digitisation of the UK DIY market, the desktop and app-based platform is launching at the right time to deliver time and cost saving efficiencies to a buoyant UK market – with over 5,000 pre-registrations already, ahead of launch.

ManoMano has also grown its staff significantly to support the launch of Pro, up 35% from 650 to 1000 since 2021, with further growth predicted.
