Webstore for 24/7 surface materials trading

Published:  14 July, 2009

LEEDS: The launch of a new online shopping solution for surface materials distribution is being hailed as a first by IDS. 

The site lets customers order products, manage their accounts and track their deliveries on the website.

The system gives trade customers full access to the company's entire flooring, worktop and Showerwall portfolio, enabling them to purchase products on line. Products covered include Tuscan solid and engineered wood flooring; Quickstep, Faus and KronoOriginal laminate flooring; Tuscan engineered stone and Tuscan solid surfaced worktops, as well as laminate worktop brands from Bushboard, Formica and Duropal.

High pressure laminates and panel products are not being included at this stage.

Marketing manager Rebecca Slinn said: “Online trading underscores IDS's core philosophy of being a one-stop-shop for surface materials by evolving the business to suit customer needs. It's very much designed to complement our current business practices, giving our customers a choice in how they trade with us and making it easy for them to do so."
