Bathroom specialist Bassetts opens its 14th outlet

Bassetts managing directors Stephen Bassett and Alan Wright at the new Bassetts store on the Springfield Road in west Belfast – the company's 14th in Northern Ireland

A Northern Ireland bathroom, heating and tile specialist is celebrating its 14th premises in Northern Ireland.

Bassetts, which is part of French business Saint Gobain, now has 14 branches across the province after raising the shutters at Springfield Road in west Belfast.

It currently employs 100 people across the province.

Managing director Stephen Bassett, said: "There is no doubt the expansion to 14 branches strengthens our leadership in the plumbing and heating market."

He added: "The new branch is another move to further cement our trade relationships, enabling installers in west Belfast and beyond to conveniently access our wide range of products."

The branch is for trade customers and supplies everything from bathrooms and tiles to radiators and boilers.

Earlier this year Bassetts retained the title of plumbers' merchant of the year at the Northern Ireland's Plumbing and Heating Awards 2014.

Managing director Stephen Bassett is stepping down from the business after 30 years in the industry, and 10 years after the acquisition by Saint-Gobain, and is to be replaced by Alan Wright.
