"We have a market share in UK online bathroom retail of over 20%. A lot of which is down to our expertise in online marketing, highly automated internal systems and efficient logistics.
None of these areas of competitive advantage are related to the bathroom industry, so we decided to expand into another product area.
With the buying power of a multi billion Euro turnover business and the backing of the major brands behind us, we intend to make a serious assault on the UK http://www.toolbox.co.uk/cordless-power-tools-3221-0000 [online power tool] market.
Since the Plumbworld business was acquired by the Grafton Group in 2006, we now have access to a wide range of building related products at market beating prices" said Scott Morris, E-Commerce Manager.

Founded by the Current Managing Director James Hickman, the company was sold to Grafton Group Plc in December 2006.
