A key introduction to the company’s portfolio will be a full Flexible Conduit Tube and Accessories range. With PVC Coated Steel flexible tube offering a V0 fire-resistance rating along with self-extinguishing PVC and Steel flexible tube available, the range will also include an IP65 rated fixed gland as standard, with IP54 swivel glands, PVC glands and PVC contractor packs completing the range. Metpro’s Flexible


Conduit Tube and Accessories range is a significant addition to the company’s M&E profile with stock readily available from November 2018.

Whilst brand new products

etpro’s focus has always been the customer. Priding its operation on excellent customer service and

products, the company has also identified a hole within the steel conduit market and has taken steps to fill this. From November 2018, Metpro’s dedicated conduit tube distribution centre will be stocked with Black Conduit Tube. Offering a sleek aesthetic appearance, Metpro’s offering will comprise both 20mm and 25mm sizes. Standard new products are not all that’s on Metpro’s agenda.

time to a very intense process and the extra space doesn’t stop there. Metpro has designated the next 12 months to build an adjacent bespoke warehouse of 8,000sq ft with an eave height of 8m. With further planned investment in a fleet of multi-level specialist picking trucks and in-depth employee training, Metpro is excited to offer even greater flexibility, deeper stock holding and space to continue introducing more new products to its offering. Renowned for its commitment to stock,

customers and strict quality control, Metpro upgraded its ISO Quality Management System to ISO 9001:2015 in July this year.

He said: “Since Metpro began trading, our focus has been on continued customer satisfaction. As we have evolved and grown this focus has never wavered and so

to be a part of this prestigious report is

something we are very proud of. It’s a

testament to all our staff and the hard work they put

in to ensure that Metpro’s Metpro flexible conduit. reputation is maintained.”
