Ian Smith at IBD

Formed in 2013, the IPG buying group was created with the main aim of providing its membership of  Independent Plumbing and Heating Merchants, access to improved group purchasing terms from manufacturers and distributors. Since then, The IPG has developed a sizeable purchasing power and its well established member and supplier network is delivering real business growth.

IBD were delighted to become a Supplier Partner to the organisation. MD Ian Smith says: “ For a number of years we have worked with independent plumbers’ merchants offering different types of renewables and support services. We understand the importance of the independents and share the philosophy of The IPG in terms of ensuring that merchants get the best financial deals and support from suppliers. Independents are key to our business and offer so much to their local installer customers.”
