Plumbers merchant Plumb Center held its first Channel Island-specifi exhibition, focusing on renewable products and technology.
The shows on Jersey and Guernsey focussed on the islands’ climate. They enjoy six weeks more sunshine than the South Coast of Britain, making them perfectly placed to harness solar technology.
Plumb Center’s area trading manager, Terry Jones said: “Our customers really appreciated having a show close to home – it is time consuming and expensive for them to travel to the mainland. They were also very pleased about the quality of the stands.”
“The islanders are fiercely independent,” said John May, Plumb Center’s Renewables Sales Manager. “They face the same problems we do because the price of gas and oil is rising and there are fears over supply. But renewables also appeal because they protect the ecology of the island, which is the source of great pride, and puts the people in charge of their own destiny.”
Exhibitors were: Aqualisa, Bristan, Coram Showers, Glow Worm, Grant UK, Grundfos, Heatrae Sadia, Honeywell, Ideal Standard, Speedfit, Kingspan Environmental, Kingspan Renewables, Mira Showers, Myson, Pegler, Polypipe, Saniflo, Sentinel Water and Energy Solutions, Twyford, Uponor, Vaillant, Yorkshire Copper tube.
