Buildbase has announced the launch of Plumbingbase, a dedicated plumbing and heating business within 44 of its branches from September 2018.

Plumbingbase will be clearly branded alongside Hirebase, Electricbase, and Kitchen and Bathroom Showrooms in Buildbase branches.

According to the company, a core range of plumbing and heating products will be stocked across all branches, from boilers to waste pipes, while a wider series of products will be available at larger sites. Plumbing and heating specialists have also been recruited to ensure that all branches can provide knowledgeable advice and support.

Lyndon Johnson, Buildbase Commercial Director, said: "We understand that time is money for our customers. Plumbingbase will complete our 'one stop shop' philosophy, reducing the need for customers to go to several merchants for a project, saving time and making their lives easier."

The Buildbase estate comprises more than 170 branches throughout the UK, and Plumbingbase will reportedly be rolled out at further locations in 2019.
