Bassetts has completed the first stage of a £2million investment in the company’s branch network with the opening of a new branch in Lisburn.
The leading plumbers’ merchant has been in the area since 1997 but having outgrown the premises at Lisburn Business Park, the branch has now relocated just 50 yards away to larger facilities.
The move is part of wider expansion plans for Bassetts that include an extension to the Bangor branch and a new trade counter and showroom in Clady. The company is set to make another major new announcement later this year regarding plans to have a presence in County Fermanagh.
Chris Downey, Lisburn Branch Manager, said, “We had simply outgrown our last premises and it was proving harder to keep the levels of stock in place that we needed. However, we were in a great location that is close to the city centre and the M1 motorway, so being able to move to an adjacent unit at Lisburn Business Park means we now have more space and the same superb location.”
This best of both worlds solution made the moving process a lot easier while regular customers haven’t been inconvenienced.
“The new branch is 12,000sqft and is more than double the size of our previous premises,” added Chris. “There’s been a lot of time and effort put into the design of the branch and, as a result, we have been able to extend our product lines and provide increased availability while also offering more inspirtational bathroom displays. “For our staff it is a joy to work in and the feedback from our customers has been really positive too.”
The new Lisburn branch is part of a continuing investment and growth strategy by Bassetts to ensure customers receive the highest standard of service right across Northern Ireland.
Forthcoming expansions at Clady and Bangor are currently ongoing and will be completed later this year and follow on from the opening of new bathroom showrooms in Dungannon and Omagh and the acquisition of Clady Plumbing Supplies.
With 15 branches across the province, the award-winning plumbers’ merchant clearly has an eye on the future.
