HHIC strengthen heating merchant membership base with UK Plumbing Supplies Ltd

Recognising the importance of membership with a trade body and the need for the heating industry to travel the path to decarbonisation together, UK Plumbing Supplies Ltd has become one of the latest members of the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC).

UK Plumbing Supplies Ltd represent well known merchant brands; Plumbase, Plumbcity, Plumbstop, Plumbstore, Gas Centre, Heating Plumbing Supplies, Millbrook distribution and spares, Michael Pavis Ltd, and Willbond.

Stewart Clements, Director, HHIC said:

“HHIC constantly reviews its membership base to ensure that it accurately reflects the needs of the industry and the consumer.  Heating and Plumbing Merchants are an integral part of the supply chain, and it’s important that they are fully represented in front of government. UK Plumbing Supplies are a welcome addition to our heating merchant membership base.”

“The level and pace of change across the industry is significant. Industry experts are best placed to influence policy and direction within the field in which they operate, but to do so we must be all encompassing, and product agnostic.”

“The role of merchants in the supply chain will be fundamental in achieving a smooth transition to a Low-Carbon future, and cannot be underestimated.” 

Steve Wimbledon, Commercial Director of UK Plumbing Supplies Ltd said:

“This is an exciting and logical step for UK Plumbing Supplies. HHIC already facilitate strong and effective links throughout the industry and with Government. By joining we feel we can complement HHICs voice and influence, which will be vital in shaping heating policy moving forward.”
