Ian Hansell, Bristan Group VP of Sales, was invited to present at the Builders Merchants Federation Heating and Plumbing Forum...
Here at Bristan we strive to be customer inspired and are committed to continual investment in feedback inspiring future products and services. We work with installers at every stage, from the seasoned plumber to the newly qualified apprentice.
We reached out to the next generation of our plumber community, Generation P, for valuable insights. Chris Walling at Coleg Llandrillo, Wales teaches apprentices aged 25 and over. Recently we sent Chris and his students a selection of products from our extensive range of taps and showers. This initiative benefits both the students and Bristan as we’re able to get their feedback on the products, whilst also giving them hands-on experience with Bristan products.
The value of Bristan products
Chris Walling, Apprentice Trainer at Coleg Llandrillo told us: “The showers and taps that Bristan have donated are perfect for demonstrations in class. In the practical workshop sessions, the students can strip the components down to replace the parts. The wider the range of components we have for them to use the better, as this helps to prepare them for what they may come across in the workplace.”
“From easy installation to compliance, being exposed to our product range means they’re able to get to grips with them inside out, therefore recommending them to their future customers.”
We also spoke to Isaac Jones, one of Chris’s students, who told us: “I’m on the second year of my apprenticeship and mostly work on new builds so I don’t get to do much maintenance other than snagging. However, the showers and taps that Bristan have donated to Coleg Llandrillo will help me massively as they are more relevant to the appliances I install, compared to the old stock the college previously had”.
The students at Coleg Llandrillo are now also members of our On Tap Installer community, which gives installers exclusive access to Bristan’s latest news, tips and exciting competitions.
