  2. In-store displays and marketing support

    We first introduced a more 'retail' feel to builders metalwork displays back in the 1990's, with bespoke display stands with eye-catching and informative point-of-sale material.

    Later we completely redesigned our boxes to act as retail displays in their own right.

    Additonal point of sale literature available:

    • Builders Metalwork Pocket Guide
    • Wall Posters
    • Selection of display card (wall or stand mounted)
    • Point of presence (PoP) cards
  3. Availability and Delivery

    Our distributors should never hold more stock than they need. In addition to our well managed inventory levels, we operate a rapid manufacturing service, producing many fast moving products the same day. Our nominal minumum order values mean you don't have to build up a large stock order to qualify for free delivery.

    We always aim to despatch our connectors the same day

    Provided you can place your order by the following times:

    Monday - Thursday: 2pm
    Friday - Midday

    Flexible Delivery Options

    Delivery choices, from a standard 2-3 day service to next day delivery (subject to the above cut-off times) are available. If you need something to be delivered directly to the site the next day, you can talk to our customer care team about that too.
