NEW DOMUS VENTILATION TEAM SUPPORTS ELECTRICAL WHOLESALERSNews
Posted by: electime 28th March 2018
The Domus brand is known within the electrical sector for ducting, but the company Domus Ventilation – formerly known as Polypipe Ventilation – has now established a dedicated team to promote its full range of energy-saving domestic ventilation systems through electrical wholesalers.
The new Domus team consists of six area distribution reps and three key account managers covering England, Scotland and Wales. Their primary role is to introduce wholesalers to the full range of Domus Ventilation products – from ducting through to extract fans and whole house mechanical systems – set up stock holding and ensure wholesalers are in a position to meet customer demand being generated by Domus sales and marketing activities.
They are also responsible for distributing point of sale material, including header boards, signage and pre-packed branded items for display boards; further material will be made available later this year.
Domus Ventilation’s move into the electrical market is being further supported through quarterly wholesaler promotions and a free of charge design service. The latest promotion to run features discounts on ducting and ducting grilles.
The design service is particularly beneficial for the electrical sector who may not be so well versed in mechanical ventilations systems, claims Domus. Customers can send their project details to Domus and in return will receive a free of charge design in AutoCAD or Revit along with a full bill of materials upon design completion. Ongoing technical support is also provided during installation, for a pain free process.
“With ventilation systems becoming more sophisticated and with a wide range of control options, the traditional market demarcations for these products are becoming blurred” states Domus Ventilation sales director Stephen Smith.
“Whereas this was often the realm of a plumber or builder, electricians are entering this market space. We see this as a growth area and are fully supportive, building a team to work with electrical wholesalers and providing incentives to use our products.
“The team has already made headway, establishing good relationships with a number of wholesalers. The feedback has been really positive as it appears ventilation manufacturers have generally not had much personal involvement in this field. It’s our intention to change that and provide a high level of personal support and relationship building.”
