For over a decade, The IPG has been supporting independent plumbing stores and bathroom showrooms by amplifying their collective voice and strengthening their position in the industry. With a thriving network of more than 200 independent stores, The IPG enables members to demonstrate their unmatched customer service and extensive knowledge while providing access to a wide range of brands at competitive prices.

The supportive membership group understands how vital local businesses are in the community and is committed to highlighting the advantages of shopping locally. This advocacy helps ensure independent stores remain at the forefront of customers’ minds and the first choice for tradespeople.

At the core of The IPG’s mission is a commitment to championing independent businesses – a passion shared by Bristan, whose partnership ensures that its products are available in member stores nationwide. This collaboration not only enriches the product offerings at these stores but also reinforces the presence of independents in an often challenging market.

Bristan boosts it’s shower offering with new designs for Spring 2024

Bristan, the UK’s largest supplier of taps and showers, has expanded its portfolio of showers with the introduction of two new options added to the Molida and Cruzar ranges this Spring.

Expanding Bristan’s trend-driven offering, the new ranges will provide merchants with more choice to supply their customers – demonstrated through the unique knurling pattern on the handles of both ranges, the Molida’s European-inspired design and the Cruzar’s timeless, industrial feel.

Molida and Cruzar concealed shower valves offer a sleek design and smart features, without compromising on size. With both shower valves fitting into a cavity space as small as 35mm for hassle-free installation, as well as an adjustable concealing plate for wall and tiles for the perfect fit with a metal back plate and handles for added durability.

Available in two outlet diverter options, users will be able to easily switch between drench head and handset modes. Both outlets also feature rub clean nozzles and thermostatic cartridges with preset temperature safety stop and automatic shut-off in the event of hot or cold water supply failure for family safe showering.

Both designs are available in a range of trend-led finishes, including matte black, brushed brass and Bristan’s signature hard-wearing chrome. They also come with everything you need in one box and Bristan’s 5-year guarantee.
