Love is in the Air!

Our congratulations go to one of our warehouse team, Kevin Callaghan, who is marrying his lovely fiancé, Laura today.

Kevin joined us as a fresh faced 18 year old in September 2003 and has become an important part of the warehouse operation. At 6 feet 7 inches tall, Kevin is a gentle giant of a man, and is the only member of the team who doesn’t need to worry about the “Working at Height” regulations – steps are unnecessary for him!

Kevin and Laura have been together for 7 years, and live in Penshaw, just outside Sunderland. As Laura is quite tall as well, there’s every chance that, should there be the patter of tiny feet, they may be rather large “Tiny” feet!

We wish Kevin and Laura a long and happy marriage.

Newly Refurbished Trade Counter Office

In today's fast track world, and with more and more local companies collecting their orders on the same day, we thought it would be nice to try and make our trade counter collection area more inviting and ultimately, make the whole experience of purchasing from IPS Flow Systems a more enjoyable one for our customers.

Over the course of the last few weeks and months, we have decorated the office and installed glass display cabinets and literature stands to promote our new and existing product lines.  If you follow our blog on a regular basis, then you will know we have recently introduced two new product lines - namely Kessel Hybrid Drainage Systems from Germany and RM Press-fit lightweight metallic piping systems from Italy.

Samples of these, together with some of our more well established product lines are now on display and our experienced counter staff are on hand to answer your questions on any of our product lines.

We always try to pick and pack your orders as quickly as possible and in the unlikely event that you have to wait for 5 or 10 minutes, we have installed a drinks vending machine so if you are calling in to collect your order, please feel free to have a tea, coffee, soup, hot chocolate, or Bovril on us!
