Williams Trade Only Plumbing and Heating Supplies will open the doors to it’s 39th branch in Poole, on Tuesday 1 December.
During this year’s unpredictable trading conditions, independent merchant Williams has retained all its branches and is still growing.
Poole Branch Manager, Rob Arthurs, brings years of experience in the plumbing sector to the branch and has put together an enthusiastic new team, with great local knowledge of the area. His ambition for the branch is to be the first choice for heating and plumbing supplies for those in the trade in Poole and the surrounding areas.
The opening of Poole has created four new jobs initially, and as the branch becomes established more jobs will be available. This latest branch to open in the South West, joins the huge Bristol regional fulfilment centre and trade counter which opened in 2019, providing more same day deliveries into the region.
Williams continues its strict trade only focus and a single price policy for all its customers. Providing award winning customer service is at the heart of its business and, in addition to the trade counters, Williams can also offer its customers delivery 7 days a week, 364 days a year if they order via their website.
Ray Stafford, Williams MD said: “Whilst we have been servicing the Poole area with same day deliveries for many years, we are delighted to further enhance our ‘trade only’ service offering to this vibrant town with the opening of our newest trade counter. I’m sure that Rob Arthurs and his team will set new standards for excellence locally.”
Regarding Williams’ plans for the future, Ray adds: “Poole is the first in our next wave of branch expansion, which will include locations in Wiltshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex and Hertfordshire in addition to Dorset. These additional sites will be supported by further investment in our second distribution centre, which will be created by the expansion of our current site at Milton Keynes. This expanded distribution facility will come online early in 2021.”
As with all Williams trade counters and facilities, employee and customer safety has been a top priority this year. Poole is no exception and will be Covid-secure and ready for launch.
The new branch is located at Unit 9, Poole Trade Park, Poole, Dorset, BH12 4FG, telephone 01202 119 931 and email firstname.lastname@example.org. Rob and his team are looking forward welcoming customers from 1st December, when some amazing opening deals are up for grabs!
