Pipekit is delighted to announce it has gained exclusive UK distributing rights for Kwik Block in the pipework and mechanical services markets. Kwik Block - the quick and versatile fastening technology - has been something of a secret weapon in the UK dairy engineering industry for some years now, and Pipekit is looking forward to working with Kwik Block UK to help bring the brand to the forefront and revolutionise how UK industries fasten pipes and tubing.

Available immediately online or via Pipekit’s trade counter, Kwik Block is a universal plastic pipe clamp that’s UV resistant and designed to work with any pipework, tubing or cabling. It requires the use of a simple cable tie, jubilee clip or any other fastening device. A feature that makes it extremely quick and versatile and sees just two sizes accommodate a wide range of different sized pipe or tubing.

Excited about the new distribution alliance, Martyn Rowlands, M.D of Pipekit said: “Kwik Block is an innovative yet simple product that complements our existing product portfolio and will be of great interest to our customers”.

He continues: “Made from a strong, high density, co-polymer polypropylene, it’s impervious to water, UV rays, corrosion and chemicals. Making this versatile fastening solution suitable for a range of hostile environments, across various industries. As a result we expect this product to grow significantly, with our customer base, over the next twelve months”.

Kwik Block is an american technology which, up until now, has been distributed solely in the UK via Vaccar, a long established UK family business, who has been using Kwik Block within the design and installation of its milking parlours for nearly 15 years. Due to the success, Kwik Block USA and Vaccar looked to expand the distribution relationship across both the UK and Europe. This led in March 2015 to Vaccar setting up a stand alone Kwik Block UK business. The latest alliance with Pipekit is key to the UK growth plan.

Commenting on the new Pipekit partnership, Simon Larner, Managing Director of Kwik Block UK said: “We’re delighted to be working with a leading pipework distributor and see Pipekit as perfectly placed to distribute and promote Kwik Block in the UK. Pipekit is already working in industries where Kwik Block is perfectly suited so we’re looking forward to seeing strong results”.
