You loved our Valentines Day Tool Massacre so much that we've decided to extend the love for a little while longer. So after discussion in the office one of our internal sales team, Alan Sowerby came up with the idea of linking it to April Fools Day and so #apriltoolsday was born.

Regardless of your choice of thermoplastic piping materials, installation time and efficiency is greatly improved by using the correct tools for the job. We offer a fantastic range of pipe cutters, bevellers and deburring tools together with pipe stands, chain vices, saws and strap wrenches - all as manufactured by Reed Tools Inc. of Erie, PA.

2018 - Wow! What A Year its Been! Roll On 2019!


2018 - Wow! What a year it's been - Roll on 2019
It doesn't seem two minutes since we said hello to 2018, but what a year it has been, but we couldn't do any of it without the continued support of ALL of the partners within our business; Our Staff, Our Suppliers and of course Our Customers - Thank You!

So what happened during 2018?

We exhibited at a number of exhibitions, including the Pump Centre Conference and UK Construction Week.



Pump Centre Conference & UK Construction Week




BAFSA Annual Conference


We continued to say hello - we continued to invest in the future of the business by welcoming new colleagues across the business aimed at strengthening the team as we get ready for 2019 and beyond! We continued to develop staff straining at all levels, so IPS isn't just a job, it's a career!

Working together to improve market recognition

We continue to come to You!




Time, as we know, is an expensive commodity and not everyone gets that opportunity to attend exhibitions, the IPS Demo Van was used a record number of times to support the training activities in a number of product areas during 2018 and we have already go a number of visits planned for the New Year!




The van allows us to take IPS to customers and prospects and we are planning even more in 2018, if you would like to discuss a session, please contact our sales office.

We did some 'daft' things - for good reasons!!

This year we decided to put our efforts into supporting a charity helping to support all those effected by Alzheimers and those who care for them!

Over the course of the year we took part in events designed to raise awareness and money for a cause so close to the hearts of our staff. We rode, we walked, we dressed up! we ate and we enjoyed ourselves - but most importantly, we gave!!

Some pictures to prove it!












All in aid of.....
