The new concept, which has been planned across the network of HRP branches, is nearing completion, with the traditional-style trade counters having been reformed into Aladdin’s caves for tools for the acr engineer.
“HRP has always been the wholesaler of choice for tools and we wanted to further invest in this important area” said Howard Noble, innovation director for Beijer Ref UK and Ireland.
The idea is to locally stock a comprehensive range of specialist and hand tools required to work on refrigeration and air conditioning systems. This is to include top brands such as WERA, which manufactures screwdrivers, spanners, Allen keys, Knipex wrenches, and pliers. HRP is also offering a great new range of batteries from GP, both disposable and rechargeable.
Other brands include Draper, which is always a popular choice offering good value, and the Martindale range of electrical isolation kits – an essential product in view of new legislation.
To celebrate the roll-out, HRP is offering a free gift with every tool purchase for a limited period.
