“SBS is one of the oldest and, more recently, one of the largest independent merchants operating from within the UK directly focusing on supplying to the commercial and industrial mechanical sector.
The core business specialises in the distribution of pipework, valves, air conditioning with all associated fittings and ancillaries. The business has extensively increased both its product portfolio and geographical coverage since the turn of the millennium. With branch coverage across the spine of England and Wales, including Head Office based in Blaby Leicester, we are able to meet our customers service commitments, our brand promise since 1897. SBS should be the number one choice for the mechanical services contractor that relies on quality of service combined with competitive pricing.
SBS can offer added value over its competitors in a multitude of ways. By drawing from our close relationships with our carefully selected and quality assured suppliers, by maintaining excellent stock levels at all branches and thus reducing supplier lead times. In turn we can provide unrivalled levels of service along with competitive pricing.
Our investment strategy for sustainable growth, along with our commitment to the branch expansion programme and product range development, are just some of the reasons behind the unprecedented success of the business, resulting in turnover increasing to over £115 million per annum today.
Through the development of our people and product range, with the support of our suppliers, shareholders and parent company, we shall maintain our desire to surpass our customers’ expectations with a level of service that will continually add value to their changing needs…”
