Our Elgin branch opened on the Pinefield Estate in Elgin in 1967.  So, we’ve been trading successfully, serving the Plumbers and Heating Engineers of Elgin and Moray, for more than 50 years now!  

On Friday the 17th of November 2017, we decided to hold a trade show, open day and evening party to celebrate.

New Branch Manager Colin Brand said: “After discussion with our supporting suppliers, the general opinion was the customers they spoke to were of good quality, and that both our customers and suppliers got something from the day.”

Suppliers who attended included:  Alpha, Danfoss, Ellis, Flo Plast, Geberit, Grants, Grundfos, Invensys, Mitsibushi, Purmo, Rothenberger, Salus, Terrain, Thomas Dudley, Utopia and Worcester.

Colin also commented: “Our evening event went really well, with a very good family atmosphere and everyone enjoyed themselves.  We have raised just over £800.00 so far for Kidney Kids and we still have some pledges to come in.”

Colin continued: “Thanks again to our key manufacturers for their attendance and support and a big thank you to my team, who pulled together a very good all day event, whilst continuing with their day to day work.”

New Branch and Showroom at Kingston Bridge Opens.

In an exciting development for our company, we’ve successfully merged our Kinning Park branch and our Hillington showroom into one location in Glasgow.

The new premises are at Houston Place on the Kingston Trading Estate in Glasgow, and include a 3,000 sq ft showroom with room for more than 40 bathroom displays.

Branch Manager John Houston said:  “I’d like to thank my team for the hard work and commitment they have shown in getting us here.  There have been many challenges to overcome but the team has rallied round, pulled together and we’re now looking forward to the increased opportunities for sales growth our new location affords us.”

Bathroom Showroom Development Manager Lorraine Bend said: “We’ve developed an attractive and inspiring 3000 square foot bathroom showroom at Kingston Bridge.  It’ll be a centre of excellence for bathroom showroom products with the latest trends in bathrooms from all over Europe on display.  We have over 40 displays on site from leading bathroom companies like Kohler, Roca, Heritage and Ideal Standard and we’ll be offering a free CAD bathroom design service.”

Lorraine continued: “It’s very realistically set out, with room-sized displays rather than one big showroom. The old one was more like an exhibition, whereas this allows people to imagine the products as they would look in their homes.

“The customers have been amazed – we’ve had some fantastic reactions on how clean and bright it all looks – and the staff are enjoying being part of a bigger set-up.  It’s quite exciting for all of us, being in this fresh and modern environment.”

Deputy Managing Director Robin Mackinlay said:  “I’m convinced this new location will deliver an enhanced level of service to our customers.  Not only is the location more central and accessible, there are obvious benefits to having our sales counter and bathroom showroom under one roof.”

Let’s wish our colleagues at Kingston bridge a bright and successful future.
