Locusrite, a leading UK manufacturer of expanded metal building products, including angle and plaster beads, has announced that it is to become part of the Vista Engineering Group.
“We’ve worked with BPC for many years and joining the group will bring benefits for everyone involved.” explains Paul Rickett, managing director of Maldon-based Locusrite. “This is especially true for the customers of both companies, who will benefit from the broader product range and enhanced technical support.”
BPC managing director, Gareth Simister adds, “The increased manufacturing capacity this brings to the group is great news. Surety of supply, at scale, is critically important for our customers and this further strengthens our offering.”
“Our approach to business is very similar, so for Locusrite to become part of the Vista group is a natural step,” adds Vista Engineering Group managing director, Phil Travis. “Their management team, customer relationships and service ethic are all very strong, so we look forward to them joining the Vista family”.
“Vista’s vision is based on manufacturing high quality products, delivering excellence in customer service and offering competitive prices. We know that Locusrite shares that vision, and the high standards we adhere to, so they are the perfect new addition to the Vista group.”
BPC has issued a new brochure turning the spotlight on its expanded builders metalwork range. The brochure has been designed as a sales aid for merchants when dealing with customer enquiries and features clear and comprehensive product information.
“The new brochure is a real step up.”
explains BPC’s managing director, Gareth Simister
“We spoke with our customers and asked them what information they need on a day-to-day basis and developed the brochure to reflect this. The inclusion of in-situ images, force diagrams and performance tables, in addition to dimensions, material thickness and pack quantities, should allow most inquiries to be dealt with without the need to refer to technical data sheets.”
The publication details BPC’s full range of single piece masonry hangers, restraint straps, timber to timber joist hangers, timber engineering hardware, multi-truss hangers, angle brackets, timber fixings and timber connectors.
“We’re very pleased with the way the brochure shows the quality of our products,” continues Gareth. “The builders metalwork range is manufactured using high grade galvanised and stainless steel and tested to the relevant British and European standards. This allows our products to provide the levels of performance, quality and reliability that the industry has come to expect from BPC at a price that remains competitive despite the market-wide pressure on raw materials.”
BPC Building Products has made significant investment in three new, state of the art, production lines, substantially increasing capacity to supply builders metalwork to the UK market.
The lines have been installed and commissioned at a second combined factory & warehouse facility, located just off junction 40 of the M1.
The lines will manufacture a range of builders’ metalwork including joist and truss hangers, restraint straps, angle brackets and timber connectors.
The new facility also gives an additional 1000 pallet spaces greatly increasing its stockholding and distribution capacity.
BPC Managing Director Gareth Simster commented,
“We’re proud to be able to create local manufacturing jobs. Yorkshire has a strong tradition for the manufacture of steel products and boasts a highly skilled workforce. Coupled with our three new production lines, this will enable us to significantly ramp up production over the next few months, to continue our growth strategy into 2022”.
BPC are part of the Vista Group – The UK’s largest independent manufacturer of builders’ metalwork.
After a year where demand for landscaping products has been higher than ever, BPC Building Products has launched a new brochure which provides full details of the company’s expanded range of landscaping products. The publication has been designed to be a handy source of reference for retailers when dealing with customer enquiries.
“This year has been very busy for us, not only in terms of demand but also product development. We’ve added new products to our landscaping range and a number of new variants to some of our existing products. We wanted a new brochure that brings the full range together in one place, making it easier for our customers to know exactly what’s available.”
“We’re very pleased with the way the brochure shows the quality of our products,” continues Gareth. “It has a simple layout, with illustrations and product information presented in an easily-accessible style.”
“As with all of our products, the landscaping range are manufactured using the best raw materials. This allows our products to provide the high levels of quality and reliability that the industry has come to expect from BPC at a price that’s competitive.”
To all of our valued customers and suppliers Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the Directors and Staff at BPC Building Products.
“A massive thank you to all our friends, partners and suppliers who have helped and supported us in 2019. We look forward to a continued successful partnership with you, and all the new opportunities next year will bring. Here’s to a successful 2020!”
Wakefield-based builders’ metalwork manufacturer BPC has invested in a new fleet of delivery and warehouse vehicles. The move comes after a successful 2018 that saw a 20% increase in turnover and culminated with BPC becoming part of the Vista Engineering group of companies.
The investment is the first of several over the coming months, with further spending on new machinery and equipment planned for later in the year. Commenting on the new vehicle fleet and planned investment, BPC Managing Director Gareth Simister said:
“This heralds a commitment in 2019 to investments that will allow us to significantly increase manufacturing capacity, further improve our delivery standards and increase our distribution capabilities so we can continue to offer market leading service and quality across the full product range. Added to the expanded product range and technical support that come from being part of the Vista Group, it makes this an exciting time for our company and all its customers.”
BPC Building Products is excited to be exhibiting at the 2018 Build Show Exhibition, at NEC Birmingham between 9-11 October 2018.
Visit us on stand B08 for more details and to take advantage of the exclusive promotions that we will be offering on the day.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet with our team and browse our vast range of products, including our selection of builder’s metalwork, plasterer’s accessories and fencing, decking and gardening supplies.
The Build Show will feature the latest advancements in building products, policy and projects, all designed to help building professionals stay up-to-date and one step ahead of their competitors.
Nathan Garnett, UKCW event director, said:
“For most people working in the trades, finding the time to keep up to date with the latest products and sourcing the best deals while juggling work commitments feels impossible.
“That’s why the Build Show is always an unmissable event for specialist trades and general builders. It brings the latest products, ideas and manufacturers to one place and is broken down into specific sections to make the search easier. It’s a much-needed opportunity to be inspired and encouraged, to make deals, and to take away lots of new ideas and products to apply straight away.”
We look forward to seeing you and your colleagues at the NEC. Register for your free ticket by clicking here or on the Build Show banner above.
