Interpretation of this privacy statement
This Privacy Statement includes examples but is not intended to be restricted only to such examples. Therefore, where the word ‘including’ is used, it shall mean; including but not limited to.
We are an expanding international company with a unique business model developed to actively support our commitment to our Stockist, whether you are an Exclusive or Authorised Dealer. Xotic PPF as a brand name exemplifies quality materials and is well recognized and respected both nationally and internationally by installers, which is why our process for selecting Stockists is rigorous.
We are always looking to appoint Stockists in most countries throughout the world that are passionate and enthusiastic about PPF and wrapping for us on a range of motor vehicles. They should run a creative vehicle wrapping business, whilst having the characteristics to be expected in a competent professional.
Knowledge of style is essential – a Stockists’ site should be stylish and offer inspiration. Wrapped vehicles should be curated and work with other items in their shop. We are keen to embrace a wide variety of design styles. Xotic PPF Stockists’ businesses are all individual and we love that each one has its own style.
Sharing knowledge and educating is a major part of the Xotic PPF brand; Stockists must be keen and able to run workshops and demonstrations for their customers. Stockists need to engage with their customers and be accessible to them – a shop must have conventional shop opening hours and a team that are trained to give advice and provides knowledge. All Stockists should actively use social media and should understand the importance of doing so. We have a very strong relationship with our Stockists and spend a lot of time supporting them and helping them to grow.
Passion for our products and what they can offer is something that we look for in all our Stockists. We consider many factors when looking at prospective Stockists, including geographical location and proximity to existing stockists.
