Builders’ Merchants News – HHIC strengthen heating merchant membership base with UK Plumbing Supplies

The company joins so that it can complement HHIC’s voice and influence, which will be vital in shaping heating policy in the future.

UK Plumbing Supplies recognizes the importance of membership in a trade association and the need for the heating industry to jointly walk the path to decarbonization and has become one of the newest members of the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council.

UK Plumbing Supplies represents well-known trademarks; Plumbase, Plumbcity, Plumbstop, Plumbstore, Gas Center, Heating Plumbing Supplies, Millbrook Distribution & Spare Parts, Michael Pavis and Willbond.

Stewart Clements, Director at HHIC said, “HHIC continuously reviews its membership base to ensure it accurately meets industry and consumer needs. Heating and plumbing dealers are an integral part of the supply chain and it is important that they are fully represented in government. UK Plumbing Supplies is a welcome addition to our member base of heating companies.

“The level and pace of change in the industry is significant. Industry experts are best placed to influence policy and direction within the field in which they operate, but for that we need to be comprehensive and product independent.

“The role of merchants in the supply chain will be fundamental in achieving a smooth transition to a low-carbon future and should not be underestimated.”

Steve Wimbledon, Commercial Director of UK Plumbing Supplies, said: “This is an exciting and logical step for UK Plumbing Supplies. HHIC already facilitates strong and effective ties across industry and with government. By participating, we believe we can complement the voice and influence of HHIC, which will be vital in shaping heating policy in the future. “
