Pipe and Climate Center has opened a new, purpose-built branch and fabrication facility in Basildon, Essex.
Boasting one of the largest trade counters and footprints in the Wolseley UK estate, the branch streamlines customer service by offering a ‘one-stop-shop’ solution. As well as dedicated Pipe and Climate Center product and technical hubs, the site has a specialist fabrication and modular engineering facility, which includes state-of-the-art lifting, welding and cutting machinery.
A launch event this week gave Pipe and Climate’s customers and partners a behind-the-scenes tour of the multi-million pound, 59,000 sq ft facility. Key suppliers were also on hand to support the event and share the latest product technologies and innovations with visitors.*
To celebrate the occasion, there were giveaways, refreshments and a prize draw, followed by the official ribbon cutting by Pipe and Climate Center managing director, Andy Wighton.
Andy commented: “Our goal is to be the distributor of choice for the industry and we are committed to delivering the best possible service to our customers. The new facility in Basildon will be instrumental to us achieving this. Customers can now fulfil all of their product needs from one convenient location, as well as being able to access best practice services in fabrication and modular engineering. It is truly a ‘one-stop-shop’ solution.”
Tony Fitzjohn of Custom Mechanical also spoke about the event: “The facility was really impressive and had everything that you could possibly need. We work closely with Pipe and Climate Center, so it great to hear first-hand the company’s vision for the site and how it will help customers in the area.”
The strategically-located facility is close to key transport links to service to the South East region and a team of 40 branch staff are on hand to offer technical advice and support. For more information, visit www.pipecenter.co.uk and www.climatecenter.co.uk.
