Independent plumbing and heating merchant Pochin held a trade exhibition in Leicester to preview new products to over 175 plumbing and heating installers.
The Leicester independent held the show at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium. Suppliers displayed the latest developments in the boiler and heating market, including air source renewable energy technologies, controls and underfloor heating, plus the latest products in the bathroom sector and trade kitchens.
The installers came from Leicestershire, Rutland, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire for the event. Pochin, a Leicester-based family firm celebrating 150 years in business – has a trade counter network covering Loughborough, Oakham, Long Eaton, Hinckley, Market Harborough and Samuel Street and Murrayfield Road in Leicester.
Pochin managing director David Pochin said: “We like to bring our customers and suppliers together, with Pochin, to introduce installers to brands new and old and to their new products.
“It’s an excellent networking opportunity for suppliers and customers, and helps our own sales team to continue to develop and nurture the great relationships we have with our customers which are so central to the success of the business.
“The suppliers support us and the installers, and it is good that the trade continues to innovate and look to bring excellent new products to the end consumers.”
Suppliers which had stands at the event included Bristan, Makita, Daikin, Polypipe, Vogue UK, Telford Cylinders, Mira, Salus Controls, Toolbank, Roman, Stelrad, Pura, Rixonway Kitchens, Rangemaster, Adey and Ferroli.
