The leading manufacturer of pipe clips, collars and covers in the UK, Talon, has agreed an exclusive worldwide licensing deal with PipeSnug.
The product has changed the way the industry and the Building Regulations approach sealing around pipework. The only all-in-one solution to meet Part L of the Building Regulations’ requirement to seal around pipework inside and out, without the need for sealant, perishable mortar or expensive air sealing tape.
The product launched in 2017 by builder Chris Burdett and Alex Lever, PipeSnug and then FlueSnug have been used by thousands of plumbers and builders, national housebuilders and local authorities.
Talon’s commercial director, Dean Heathfield, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with PipeSnug. The addition of these innovative pipe sealing products into the Talon family really does make perfect sense. We are really excited to have PipeSnug on board. Talon will help accelerate the ‘Snug’ family of products’ growth through increased distribution, next day delivery, more product development and even more marketing support.
“We have watched the PipeSnug phenomenon grow over the years and we have been really impressed by the benefits the products bring to heating and plumbing installers, as well as to housebuilders and local authorities when it comes to complying with Part L of the Building Regulations.”
PipeSnug’s founders Chris Burdett and Alex Lever explained how the deal with Talon ends one chapter in the company’s history but are looking forward to the future. Both of them will be engaged by Talon to advise and consult as they potentially look to expand the range.
Lever believes moving to Talon is the right one for PipeSnug and also said: “We shall join Dean and his team in pushing PipeSnug forward and under Talon’s wings we shall look to bring more ideas to market that save time and money for the trade. The partnership also allows us to further explore opportunities for the product outside of the UK too.”
“From those first ideas and meetings with Alex in the pub back in the early days, via Dragons’ Den to this partnership with Talon, our journey with PipeSnug has been amazing,” says Burdett. “I cannot wait to see PipeSnug soar to even greater heights in its new home.”
