Manor, the specialist building plastics merchants, part of plumbers merchant group BSS Group, have launched a new direct to customer service offering from the BSS Industrial National Distribution Centre at Magna Park, Leicestershire.
Products available on a guaranteed next day by carrier delivery basis include PVCu, ABS, Polypropylene, Polyethylene. PVCc and PVDF from companies such as George Fischer, Durapipe and Astore.
Manor Plastics are part of BSS Industrial and the new direct to customer carrier service complements the BSS branch network as each branch can also deliver the new extended range on a normal delivery fleet or have goods available for customers to collect at one of the 56 trade counters across the UK.
Manor was launched four years ago and operates through a National Sales Centre in Sheffield. Manned by staff specialising in plastics, the Centre supports the BSS Industrial network. The new service offering is being supported by a team of four dedicated internal sales staff at the Manor national sales office in Sheffield and by five regional plastics engineers who will be working with customers across the five geographical BSS regions.
Paul Norton, brand sales director for Manor Plastics, said: “Since our relocation to Sheffield and the development of internal and external specialist sales teams, we have been focusing on new market sectors such as the water treatment, food and beverage and chemical industries. We have seen a dramatic increase in the demand for plastic piping and noticed a significant gap in the market for a company who can provide a single solution on a local and national basis supported by expert knowledge.
“By having stock based at Magna Park we can fully meet the demand for plastics and continue to grow by offering services with a specialist focus. With new product catalogues in the pipeline and a website launching soon, the future certainly looks bright.”
