BSS Industrial and Travis Perkins are a dynamic duo on Heathrow project

Published:  11 October, 2011

NORTHAMPTON: BSS Industrial has demonstrated its new-found strengths since becoming part of the Travis Perkins Group, with the successful completion of a joint project at Heathrow Airport.

BSS Industrial was asked to supply a range of cast iron by customer, Crown House Technology. This range would usually be specially ordered for the customer, but with support from Travis Perkins in White City, the product was readily available and delivered within 24 hours.

On the same project, Travis Perkins was asked by Mechanical and Roofing to supply Geberit HDPE. BSS Industrial stepped in to utilise its wide stock range and excellent availability, getting the product to site when required.

Peter Sullivan, operations director for BSS Industrial, said: “Since the acquisition of the BSS Group by Travis Perkins at the start of 2011, we have added a number of new strings to our bow. Both companies are specialists in different markets; by combining our strengths we can offer complete solutions. This is opening new doors for us as a leading distributor whilst providing clients with a more comprehensive service.”
