Southampton-based Independent Plumbing Supplies has become a member of buying group The IPG.

Independent Plumbing Supplies specialises in supplying sanitaryware to both trade plumbers and directly to their customers. The company, founded just three years ago, is growing at a rapid rate and joining The IPG is a further step towards expansion, as the company looks to enhance its showroom and open another store next year.

“These are exciting times for Independent Plumbing Supplies and we are very pleased to welcome it to The IPG where we can help it on its road to expansion,” said Robin Beal, managing director of The IPG.

“At The IPG, we can help independent merchants access good group purchasing terms allowing them to forge strong relationships with suppliers so they can compete in the wider market.”
