Another feather in the Capper for Drain Center

Published:  14 March, 2013

The pipe world is about to benefit from its own vintage relaunch, as Drain Center – part of Wolseley UK – announces the return of Capper Plastics.

Originally established more than 25 years ago, Capper Plastics was acquired by Wolseley UK and integrated into the Drain Center brand in 2003. Now, the Capper Plastics name is making a comeback to front Drain Center’s new industrial products range, demonstrating the company’s increased focus on industrial plastics and its considerable heritage within the market.

Adam Pitt, national contracts manager for Drain Center, explained: “People often look to the past for brands that are tried, tested and trustworthy, and Capper Plastics ticks all these boxes. A very well-known name in the industry, Capper Plastics is a brand with a wealth of knowledge and expertise that is still synonymous with delivering high-quality products to customers.

“We’re delighted to be announcing the relaunch of Capper Plastics. Although the Capper Plastics name was superseded by Drain Center, the strength of the brand has always stayed strong. We have never lost our enthusiasm for selling industrial plastics, and bringing back Capper Plastics as part of Drain Center means we can continue to build on our reputation within the industry. It is an exciting time for the company, as we call on our extensive heritage and look to confirm our status as the leading supplier of industrial plastics in 2013 and beyond.”

Working with the leading manufacturers from within the sector, such as Durapipe and George Fischer, Capper Plastics will offer a comprehensive range of pipes and fittings to service a number of sectors, primarily targeting sewerage farms, factories and water treatment and chemical plants. The Capper Plastics industrial range will be available through 18 exclusive Drain Center branches nationwide.
