Electricfix, a new specialist wholesaler for electrical contractors, has been launched by trade retailer Screwfix
The new wholesaler guarantees industry-leading availability at fixed low prices seven days a week. Supplies are available for up to 13 hours per day from a dedicated call centre, with free next-day delivery to site by 10:30am on larger orders.
However, the company plans to do far more for the industry than improve access to low-priced products. It is the first wholesaler to team up with NICEIC, the ECA and the Electrical Safety Council to help stamp out unqualified workers and to raise standards. Contractors need to prove their credentials to purchase through Electricfix. The company will be developing joint initiatives to support industry apprentices.
The Electricfix catalogue contains information on current regulations and advice from trade bodies to help promote safety standards. It will also be communicating the importance of electrical safety and qualifications to the broader trades through the Screwfix network.
