YOLO appointed UK distributor for Amazonas hammocks

Following a multi-million-pound investment deal earlier in 2021 between YOLO and Amazonas GmbH, YOLO has been appointed the official UK distributor for Amazonas, representing an interesting and exciting category for retailers in 2022.  To complement this, they've launched Amazonas UK for distribution as well as a new direct-to-customer website – www.amazonas-online.co.uk.

YOLO, founded in 2014 on a kitchen table in North Yorkshire, has grown into a thriving online-retail group that owns and operates 8+ brands that sell to over 48 countries. One of their brands, Simply Hammocks, has always had a good trade relationship with their supplier Amazonas GmbH up until last year when YOLO made a multi-million-pound investment deal with Amazonas GmbH.

“We see hammocks as a growing garden category over the next few years, as the sector faces growing costs, quality, and supply issue sourcing garden furniture from China. Our hammocks and range of garden furniture are manufactured in Europe, to German standards so they’re built to last.” says Scott Woodhead, YOLO Founder.

YOLO has just invested in a new warehouse facility and plans to create 30 new jobs this year. As many retailers are struggling to source garden furniture stock and with rising logistic costs, the deal means that YOLO can offer retailers the full product range from its warehouse, and access to quick deliveries directly from the Amazonas factory in Europe.

Amazonas GmbH’s slogan is “Hammocks make you happy” and that’s exactly what Amazonas UK is planning on doing. "We are excited to announce YOLO as our UK distributor for Amazonas. With our close working relationship and shared interest, we feel this marks an exciting chapter for our hammock brand in the UK" says Matthias Saul, Amazonas GmbH President.

Though YOLO is already speaking to various online and high street retailers regarding Amazonas UK & its products, they would love to speak to retailers interested in ranging their high-margin and low-return hammocks. Contact hello@amazonas-online.co.uk for details or visit Amazonas UK.
