Securing the deal: TP's Mark Baldwin and Gledhill's Jason Hobson.

TP names Gledhill 'preferred supplier'

Published:  19 April, 2010

NORTHAMPTON/BLACKPOOL: Gledhill Building Products, one of the UK's leading manufacturers of stainless steel and copper cylinders, has been awarded a trading agreement to supply leading builders' merchants, Travis Perkins.

Gledhill Stainless Lite is now stocked on the shelf throughout 200 City Plumbing Supplies branches as a new drive towards their 'take away today' initiative.

Mark Baldwin, product manager at Travis Perkins, explained: "When installers visit our branches or order online they want the products quickly and Gledhill's ability to deliver this aspect of the agreement was a key factor in their success."

As well as a range of standard cylinders, the company will also supply 'specials', for example slimline versions of the stainless unvented and Stainless Lite HP, a stainless steel cylinder specifically designed for use with heat pumps.
