Climate-Center-Kings-XUK: Pipe and Climate Center has spent £180,000 streamlining the product offering at its Central London branch in Kings Cross.

The move, which includes an increased stockholding of pipes, valves and fittings, is said to be in response to a projected growth in commercial construction in London.

With many London construction projects now well underway, Pipe and Climate Center says it is seeing an increased footfall from contractors collecting essential items en route.

Research into the buying patterns of its customers in Kings Cross revealed a need for Pipe and Climate Center to enhance its typical installation product range, including copper, stainless steel, carbon steel, plastic and malleable steel products. The range covers various application requirements and installation methods, from solder ring through to press fitting across approximately 1400 product lines with 60 different suppliers.

James Eagles, business development manager for London and the South said: “At Pipe and Climate Center we strive to ensure our customer experience is as efficient as possible. In this industry time is money so when contractors need a product at the eleventh hour they want to be in and out as quickly as possible. We have therefore streamlined our Kings Cross facility to reflect the environment in which it is situated and make sure our customers get what they need from a branch visit.”
