Primaflow F&P consolidates 'smart home' portfolio with Nest and Hive product additions

Tuesday 16th October 2018, 16:39

The UK's largest plumbing, heating and bathrooms wholesaler Primaflow F&P has added 40 new stock lines from Nest and Hive, further bolstering a strong portfolio of smart home products from the UK's leading manufacturers.

 The new additions, which include Nest's 3rd-gen Learning Thermostat and Hello video doorbell, and Hive's Active Heating, Hot Water and Multizone kits, join a comprehensive suite of digital thermostats, timers, programmers, cameras and ancillary items from suppliers including Drayton, Honeywell, Danfoss, Salus and Neomitis.

Mark Shelford, Category Manager for Heating at Primaflow F&P, explains that the range has been tailored to meet the requirements of a diverse marketplace: 

 "The demand for smart controls and related technology has risen exponentially in recent years - in the past 12 months alone, we've observed a substantial increase in orders for digital controls. Although smart technology is still relatively new, it is far from a 'one size fits all' market - there are clear distinctions between customer types and preferences, and product lines have evolved rapidly to meet these needs.

 "As well as the more practical considerations, such as ease of installation and multizone requirements, buying decisions can be influenced by a number of product features: aesthetics, ease of use, environmental impact - and, of course, price. We have negotiated with all leading suppliers to provide a wide range of products at competitive costs, in order to enable our merchant network to cater for differing needs across the full spectrum of their customer base."  

The full smart home range is available to view at here with next working day delivery on orders placed before 5pm, Monday to Friday. A selection of digital controls from Nest, Hive, Drayton, Honeywell, Danfoss and Salus also feature in the wholesaler's Cashback Plus promotion, with a cash credit added to customers' trade accounts for each promotional product ordered until 21st December.
