We’re the company that lists the price of every item, which puts sensible kits together, which keeps a large stock for immediate delivery and which gives email and phone support before and after the sale. is a family owned company based at one of Britain’s largest stock and fulfilment centres in the UK, in Peterborough, and we have offices in the Manchester and London areas.

2012 sees the release of the HydroForce pump, optimised for rainwater harvesting. The HydroForce is the first pump made specifically for rainwater harvesting, such an essential process in making homes more sustainable. Reliability is essential, so the HydroForce improves on existing submersible pumps with a bulkhead separating the pump chamber from the electric motor and a pressure release gap. These two features, for which patent applications have been accepted, ensure water does not get into the motor. The intelligent pump functions are controlled by a dedicated PCB, double dry-run protection, pressure-sensitive water delivery and non-return-valve.

What we are looking for:
1) Sector: building industry. The distributor should be active in supplying equipment, product and services to building contractors, architects, developers, engineers and related companies. Although many of the distributor’s clients will be home owner or intermediary for a single home installation (£2000 to £3000, $3000-4500 US dollars), the bigger turnover comes from sales to multi-dwelling developments, blocks of flats, schools, sports halls, hotels, hospitals, care homes, warehouses and factories (up to £100,000, $150,000).

2) Resources. The distributor needs
a. technical staff to assess market needs and to adapt the offer to them,

c. marketing staff to develop this intelligence into sales materials including trade fairs, consumer fairs, display, brochures, product information sheets, advertising and editorial coverage in the media,
d. sales staff to qualify sales leads and clinch deals,
e. sales support staff to answer questions during and after the sale, including on installation and regulatory issues
f. finance, legal, HR and IT infrastructure, ideally with an integrated warehouse stock, sales orders and finance package,

3) Size. The distributor, to have such resources, will have at least 25 to 50 staff in the resource areas listed above and a minimum turnover of £10m ($15 million US Dollars).
