Plumbing and heating merchant Bassetts has opened its sixteenth store in Northern Ireland, following a £2 million investment.

The store, which generated three new jobs in the area, will sell trade supplies, gas and oil spares, give estimates and technical support, and provide a delivery service.

Bassetts recently won Plumbers’ Merchant of the Year for the fourth year in a row in the NI Plumbing and Heating Awards.

Alan Wright, Managing Director of Bassetts, said: “We are delighted to have opened our sixteenth store in Enniskillen, completing our regional presence right across Northern Ireland. We were finding that customers were travelling from Fermanagh to our other stores, such as Omagh, to avail of our high-quality products and design services, so we felt we needed to launch here to meet that demand.

“While trade customers now have the luxury of a full range of plumbing and heating supplies, home owners who wish to create or update their dream bathroom can also do so with the help of our expert team. With Home Improvement Month just around the corner, the Enniskillen store opening has come just in time!”
