UK Sales support
Wonder Grip is a global glove manufacturer, concentrating its efforts on developing and innovating new technologies to ensure that the safety of end users is paramount. The business has recently restructured its sales platform in the UK by opening its own warehouse and dealing directly with builders’ merchants nationwide.
Outlining the potential for ‘great margins’ and with a low re-order value, the company prides itself on manufacturing products that conform to the highest level of international standards and also recognises the importance of helping stockists to promote its product range in-branch. To make advertising its gloves easier whilst making “good use out of your trade space”, the firm says it is pleased to supply a POS stand free of charge with all new orders.
Designed with builders’ merchants and distributors in mind, Owlett-Jaton’s comprehensive new website — www.owlett-jaton.com — has been launched with the wholesaler stating that it has also worked hard to improve its online ordering platform for customers.
Said to offer easy navigation, increased product information and several new features — including stock availability indicators, merchandising case studies and catalogues to download — for a more interactive experience, the website showcases the fixings and fasteners supplier’s 30,000+ product lines which are typically available for free next-day delivery, with low minimum order levels.
Rainwater Calculator tool
Launched across its Hunter Plastics and Marley Plumbing & Drainage brands, Aliaxis has launched a new Rainwater Calculator too which will enable installers, contractors, merchants and even homeowners to easily and quickly estimate the number of brackets, unions, downpipes and fittings that are required for a specific project.
The easy-to-use tool is designed to save customers valuable time, with the automated calculations improving the efficiency of placing an order. For merchants, the tool also has the ability to apply a discount across all products.
50% recycled content packaging
Tarmac states that it has become the first major cement manufacturer in the UK to move to 50% recycled plastic in its packaging with the roll out of new all-weather, fully recyclable hybrid bags. The new packaging continues to offer rip, tear and puncture resistance, as well as providing essential protection against rain and water damage.
The bags also feature clearer recycling labelling and information to encourage customers to ‘empty, rinse, recycle’ and dispose of the packaging responsibly.
Merchant Support Brochure
Builders’ merchants are said to have been key customers to Resapol ever since its formation in 1999, growing further in importance with the launch of its dedicated merchant support team in 2019. Its new Merchant Support Brochure for 2021 gives an insight into a selection of the products available through the independent supplier of construction chemicals, including everything from rapid concrete and waterproofing essentials to flooring and joint sealing solutions as well as crucial ancillaries and primers.
In addition, the brochure highlights the firm’s commitment to providing expert technical support, quick quotations and next day delivery. Hard copies are available, whilst a digital version can be downloaded via www.resapol.com/downloads
Acknowledging that everyone has a part to play in protecting the planet, Tobermore has overhauled its packaging design to have significantly less environmental impact. Its new 100% recyclable polyethylene film contains 30% recycled material enabling the business to decrease waste and reduce its packaging-related carbon footprint by 20%.
These environmental benefits are said to come with no downfall to the quality or efficiency of the packaging with the strength and durability of the original film being maintained.
