Shoreheat and Plumbase join forces

Aidan Ogle, Sparesbase business development director
Solar and heating parts stockists Shoreheat has announced its integration with Plumbase. Shoreheat’s 19 branches and distribution centre will be rebranded Sparesbase as part of the initiative which will receive investment from its parent company.

In addition, the new Sparesbase brand will integrate Time & Temperature – an existing Plumbase business. This will bring the number of Sparesbase branches up to 37 whilst the brand aims to open further branches within existing Plumbase stores giving nationwide coverage.

Aidan Ogle, Sparesbase’s business development director, said: “The integration of these two major players in the spares business makes it exciting times for the industry. Both have fantastic reputations for their level of service and expertise, and it’s these strengths that will be built upon as part of a bigger group.

“Sparesbase is led by customer requirement: we take pride in offering excellent stock availability in stores where people need it. This is supported by specialist knowledge, with staff understanding the needs of heating engineers. For us it’s all about being the best spares specialist across boiler and heating spares, solar spares and controls.”
