UK: Beijer Ref is continuing the rollout of its ToolHUB concept across its HRP refrigeration and air conditioning branches.
So far this year, the traditional-style trade counters at 11 of HRP’s 14 branches have been reformed into virtual “Aladdin’s caves” for tools for the refrigeration and air conditioning engineer.
“HRP has always been the wholesaler of choice for tools and we wanted to further invest in this important area,” said Howard Noble, Beijer Ref UK and Ireland’s innovation director.
The concept is to locally stock an expanded and comprehensive range of specialist and hand tools required to work on refrigeration and air conditioning systems. This includes top brands such as WERA screwdrivers and spanners, Allen keys, Knipex wrenches and pliers.
In addition to this, HRP offers a new range of batteries from GP, both disposable and rechargeable. Other brands include Draper and the Martindale range of electrical isolation kits.
To celebrate the roll-out, for a limited period HRP is offering a free gift with every tool purchased.
