Based in Dublin, Sanbra Fyffe is a market leader in the supply of plumbing and heating products to the plumbing and building merchant sector in Ireland.
Herron & Son, Sligo is Ireland’s leading retail wholesaler in the general hardware and agri sector. The two companies have now teamed-up with Hansen of New Zealand to bring an unrivalled and internationally acclaimed range of products to the Irish market. The new partnership will also increase employment at Sanbra and Herron with up to six people being added to their sales and marketing team initially.
The range of over 1,000 products from the New Zealand specialist manufacturer, in business for over 60 years, includes poly compressions fittings for agri, commercial and domestic plumbing applications. The range will meet the needs of plumbing contractors, farmers, builders and DIY specialists.
“There are no comparable products on the Irish market that can rival Hansen in terms of quality, cost-effectiveness or ease of use. Key benefits include the fact that one fitting can be used with all pipe types, they are manufactured to withstand the harshest weather conditions and carry a lifetime guarantee,” said Noel Conroy, Sanbra’s Commercial Manager.
Colum Murphy of Herron & Son said that the company is proud to bring Hansen’s range of proven and competitively priced products to the Irish markets which has up to now offered little variety in efficient cost-effective water systems solutions.
The Hansen products now available in Ireland will include a new range of Easy Fit Compression fittings, specifically designed and manufactured for the Irish market. An impressive feature of these fitting is that sizes up to and including 1¼” can be hand tightened to 40bar.
Another product range available for agri, rural, horticultural and irrigation use is Hi-Flo Trough Valves (Fast, Super and Maxflo). Also available will be True Fit Threaded Fittings, True Fit Tank Fittings, Quick Connection Unions and Easy Fit Self Tapping Saddles.
The new products will be promoted over the coming months with a marketing campaign including a tour of the country by the Hansen demonstration unit and a display area at the National Ploughing Championship.
Steve Sharpe, Director of Sales and marketing at Hansen said, “We are delighted to be working with Sanbra Fyffe and Herron & Son. Our businesses operate very similarly and share core values and views on providing high performance, quality water system solutions for every need. We look forward to building a long-lasting business relationship together.”
