Plumbfix sets up shop in Northern Ireland

Published:  10 January, 2014

Plumbfix is launching its first four trade counters in Northern Ireland. Situated in Screwfix stores, the Plumbfix counters will open in Ballymena, Belfast and Newtownabbey on 13 January, 2014, and in Bangor on 27 January.

The launches are the latest additions to the company's increasing network, which now has more than 270 counters across the UK.

Qualified plumbers can sign up in store for a Plumbfix account, or online at, by proving their professional credentials. Once they have an account, they can get their hands on Plumbfix products available to take away on-the-day, in addition to thousands more products available for next-day delivery. Qualified plumbers and heating engineers can also receive a trade account with up to 60 days free credit (subject to approval).

Sandra Everett, senior marketing manager at Plumbfix, said: "We are very excited to be launching our first counters in Northern Ireland, giving qualified plumbers in the area the chance to purchase products at a time and place that suits them. Northern Irish customers have been shopping at for many years, and we are delighted to now be able to offer them the counter experience for added convenience and speed – after all, time is money for plumbers."

Local plumbers will also be able to take advantage of Plumbfix’s Click & Collect service, which enables them to purchase products online, and collect their goods five minutes later in any one of the trade-only counters.
