Northern Ireland’s largest plumbing and heating supplier, Bassetts, has officially opened its new branch in Clady, Portglenone.

The local company acquired Clady Plumbing Supplies in October 2016 and has completely redeveloped the 1.5 acre site which includes a new trade counter and a separate bathroom showroom featuring a dedicated cooker and stove studio.

The opening is a noteworthy milestone for the leading local business, which is part of the internationally renowned Saint-Gobain Group, bringing Bassetts total branch network in the region to 15.

This significant development is part of the company’s ongoing investment programme and reaffirms Bassett’s steady growth over the past 35 years and its position as Northern Ireland’s largest plumbing and heating supplier.

The official opening took place recently and was attended by local celebrities including Jackie Fullerton, former Miss NI Lucy Evangelista and her husband, ex-Ireland international rugby player, Matt McCullough. Also in attendance were Cllr Paul Reid, Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, Cllr Sean McPeake and MLA Ian Milne.

Bassetts’ Managing Director Alan Wright said, “We are thrilled to officially open the newly transformed showroom and trade counter in Clady. The new branch has been redeveloped to a very high standard and strengthens our overall offering across Northern Ireland, particularly in the Mid-Ulster area.

“Clady Plumbing Supplies provided excellent service to its customers for nearly 50 years and has a great history. We look forward to continuing to build on this reputation and delivering top class services to both retail and trade customers in the area.”

Former Director of Clady Plumbing Supplies, John Mackle, said, “I am very proud of the company and reputation we have built up over the years and am delighted that leading plumbing and heating supplier, Bassetts, has taken over the business and will continue to build on our achievements to date.”

A strong focus on superior design, innovation and cutting-edge technology, alongside its commitment to adapting to the ever-changing needs of customers, has been key to Bassetts’ achievements over the past 35 years. A prime example is the Bassetts Visualiser, NI’s first interactive touchscreen software that allows customers to choose from hundreds of wall and floor tiles to easily create the perfect look in their dream bathroom.

Catering for every need, ranging from boilers and radiators through to bathrooms, showers, tiles and everything in between, Bassetts currently employs over 130 people with 15 branches in Bangor, Belfast, Clady, Coleraine, Downpatrick, Dungannon, Lisburn, Greencastle, L’Derry, Mallusk, Newry, Portadown and Omagh.
