Electricbase is part of the £1 billion turnover Grafton Group, which also includes Buildbase, Plumbase, Selco and other leading trade distribution brands. The company is one of the leading electrical wholesalers in the UK with 82 branches serving electrical installers nationally.
“This is terrific news that will greatly extend the national availability of Chint products precisely at the time that new class-leading designs are to be released,” said Graham Chadwick, Chint’s UK marketing director.
In a letter to branch managers highlighting the new deal, Stuart Brass, operations director for Electricbase noted, “Some of our branches have been stocking Chint products since we first started trading in 2009. These products have a very low return rate because all products are 100 percent inspected before shipping, and installers who use them come back for more. I am sure that there will be high demand for this equipment.”
Products included in the commercial agreement include three phase and single phase electrical distribution boards, a wide range of consumer units, MCB’s, RCBO’s and stylish switches, sockets and light fittings. All equipment is independently tested and certified by independent leading test houses.
Chint is a global company operating in the UK from Stockport where its main warehouse is located together with a manufacturing centre for specials and pre-engineered product.
