July 2013 - Plumbase Industrial brand targets commercial heating market

Plumbase Industrial has been launched as a supplier of pipeline and mechanical engineering products for the commercial building services and industrial process markets.

The new brand has opened its first branch on the Hendricks Lovell site in Hayes, West London – and their landlords even lent them a lorry to make deliveries while they waited for their own!

But Plumbase Industrial drivers now have their own 18 ton delivery lorry, enabling it to supply sites around the area.

Branch Manager Michael House said: “Business is picking up week on week. We’ve got a good knowledge of what the customers require and we’re basing our stock on what they need.

“I think the customers like having a new company to work with. It’s a friendly team as well – sometimes you don’t get the same kind of relationship or rapport when you’re dealing with other companies.”

Aimed at mechanical contractors working on major building projects, Plumbase Industrial has secured agreements with high quality manufacturers to offer innovation and value across a range of products but with a particular focus on pipeline and mechanical engineering supplies, including drainage, commercial and industrial heating, pumps, controls and valves.

Hayes was chosen as the first branch to capitalise on the fact that London is enjoying its highest level of construction activity since the recession. More branches are set to follow in the coming months.

If you have any commercial plumbing and heating enquiries, just give us a call on 0208 848 6240.
