Online bathroom retailer Plumbworld has appointed Home Delivery Network as its primary carrier.

HDN has taken over 24-hour, proof of delivery and Saturday services for the company, which sells more than 6,500 products including baths, showers, sinks, furniture and lighting.

As part of the contract, HDN will also be delivering for, which alongside Plumbworld is owned by the Grafton Group.

Sean Foy, operations director at Plumbworld, said: “We need a reliable delivery partner that can handle high volumes, as well as offer suitable services for our customers – and these, along with our own products and competitive prices, will help to differentiate us from our competitors.

“With a rapidly increasing customer base across the UK, we also need to work with a partner that has true national reach and that fully understands online retail.”

Brian Gaunt, chief executive of Home Delivery Network, added: “Plumbworld is an incredibly popular site with consumers and SME plumbing companies looking to capitalise on the latest ranges at affordable prices. We look forward to working with Plumbworld and responding to the increasing demands of customers who require more convenient and secure deliveries.”
