Travis Perkins has begun a national rollout of bathroom showrooms to improve service for its trade customers.

TP says its showrooms will give the trade and their customers the chance to choose from a range of inspirational bathroom suites supported by next day availability. The first batch of 27 showrooms have now opened, with a major roll-out programme across City Plumbing Supplies and Travis Perkins scheduled over the next three years.

The new showrooms will offer complete bathrooms available next day to trade customers, along with specialist, knowledgeable staff and clear pricing. They will showcase a new range of stylish bathroom products from iflo, Roca, Vitra, Kholer Mira, Novellini and many other quality branded manufacturers.

Each opening is also being supported by a VIP launch, giving key trade customers the personal understanding of how the showroom can improve the service they give to their customers, saving them both time and hassle.

Steve Smith, director of Bathrooms, said: “These new showrooms are the culmination of a two-year research project into what our customers want and they are designed to make things easier for both tradesmen and homeowners alike.

“Plumbers have the confidence to recommend any style to a customer from the great range and all the products are available within 48 hours, so customers can be sure that there will never be a delay on their project. We also offer the best guarantees available in the market, which reinforces the quality of our ranges.

“In addition, the trade’s customers can choose from a range of inspirational bathrooms in a friendly, retail environment with the support of dedicated Showroom Managers, a comprehensive brochure and a free design consultation service.

“We’re confident that they will be a great success and we’re looking forward to continuing to roll-out across the Travis Perkins Group network over the coming months.”
