Uponor teams up with BSS Industrial for summer road show

Published:  07 May, 2014

Uponor has teamed up with commercial heating and pipeline distributor, BSS Industrial, for its 2014 summer road show.

Running between 20 May and 2 July 2014, Uponor will be visiting 15 BSS branch locations across the country. Starting in Chessington, the road show will visit further branches in London before travelling north via Bristol, Cambridgeshire, the Midlands, Yorkshire and Lancashire. The tour will finish with two dates in Scotland, at BSS Glasgow and BSS Aberdeen.

The road show will give mechanical and electrical contractors contractors and installers the opportunity to get hands on with some of Uponor’s innovative products, including its Q&E Shrink Fit jointing system, and Multi-Layer Composite Pipe (MLCP) range. Attendees will also get the chance to speak with Uponor’s industry experts about the company’s training programme and expanding design capabilities.

What’s more, Uponor is offering 75,000 ‘uPoints’, which form part of its Uponor & More Loyalty Scheme, to anyone who purchases over £6,000 of products from any BSS branch within a three month period, starting from the road show launch date. Participants can then convert the points into a wide range of rewards such as iPads, digital cameras, TVs, as well as more practical options such as MLCP press-fit tools.

Sam Barker, Uponor's key account manager for Travis Perkins Group, said: “BSS Industrial is widely recognised as one of the industry’s leading suppliers of heating and pipeline solutions. Given its reputation for excellent service and support we know BSS will make the ideal partner for our 2014 road show.

“One of the key reasons we’re taking to the road is not just to showcase our products, or to promote the complete BSS service package, but to tell the UK’s industrial heating contractors and installers how we can add value to their projects with innovative design and training opportunities.”
