Spare parts merchant, Parts Center, part of Wolseley, is adding new trade counters and increasing its spares stockholding in all Plumb Center branches.
The roll out, which is due to be finished by the first quarter of 2011, will more than double the number of Parts Center locations to nearly 500.
Each branch will offer core stock items from leading names including Worcester Bosch, Baxi, Honeywell and Siemens. Additional spares will be on a next-day delivery service.
Colin McGregor, Parts Center trading director, said: “We have already added 130 Parts Center locations this year making the total to date 350 and the response has been so positive we have decided to open nearly 150 more. That’s about 25 a month over the next six months.
“We know how important it is for hvac industry professionals to obtain the parts they need quickly and easily in order to do their job properly. By having more Parts Center locations within Plumb Center branches we are able to ensure our customers have access to everything they need under one roof.”
