Shower your customers with timely deliveries

The UK Bathroom market grew 15% in 2021. This, in comparison to a dip of 16% in 2020, was no doubt a welcome deep cleanse for your profit margins.

But has volatility created an unwelcome u-bend in your supply chain performance?

You’re not alone. An unsettled market brings lower availability, working capital issues and work overload.

In the last few years, we’ve helped customers like Ideal Bathrooms, Ultra Finishing & Roper Rhodes keep their supply chain in tip top shape. Together, we’ve achieved:



Efficiency increase


stock-out reduction


sales increase


inventory reduction
