Councillor Hazel Legge, Deputy Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council has officially opened local company, Bassetts’ new branch in Old Hillsborough Road, Lisburn.

The leading bathroom company has operated in the area since 1997 but having outgrown the premises at Lisburn Business Park, the branch has now relocated just 50 yards away to larger facilities. The move has seen the overall showroom and trade counter space more than double in size to 12,000 sq ft.

This significant development is part of the company’s ongoing investment programme and reaffirms Bassett’s steady growth over the past 35 years and its position as Northern Ireland’s largest plumbing and heating supplier.

Bassetts’ retail and trade customers and employees attended the launch event, which took place on Thursday 21st September, alongside legendary broadcaster, Adrian Logan, and former Miss Northern Ireland and successful businesswoman, Alison Clarke.

Councillor Hazel Legge, Deputy Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council said, “Bassetts’ Lisburn branch is a local success story and it’s great to see the company continue its impressive growth. This investment by Bassetts shows the company’s intentions to build on its achievements to date as well as its commitment to the local area and I wish Bassetts continued success for the future.”

Basetts’ Managing Director Alan Wright said, “Over the past number of years our Lisburn branch has experienced remarkable success, securing new retail and trade customers. This has enabled us to invest significantly and move into a larger property with the aim of continuing to build on this growth and extend our offering in the local area.

“I am thrilled with the expansion and the benefits that this will bring to our local customers as well as our employees. I would like to thank our team working in the Lisburn branch as this expansion wouldn’t have been possible without their hard work, dedication and the top class service they give to our customers on a daily basis.”

A strong focus on superior design, innovation and cutting-edge technology, alongside its commitment to adapting to the ever-changing needs of customers, has been key to Bassetts’ achievements over the past 35 years.  A prime example is the Bassetts Visualiser, NI’s first interactive touchscreen software that allows customers to choose from hundreds of wall and floor tiles to easily create the perfect look in their dream bathroom.

Catering for every need, ranging from boilers and radiators through to bathrooms, showers, tiles and everything in between, Bassetts currently employs over 130 people with 15 branches in Bangor, Belfast, Clady, Coleraine, Downpatrick, Dungannon, Lisburn, Greencastle, L’Derry, Mallusk, Newry, Portadown and Omagh.
