VIP to showcase innovation and performance at NMBS

NMBS Trade Exhibition 2018

VIPSealChem, the new game-changing chemical resistant flexible pipe coupling, will be a star attraction on the VIP-Polymers Ltd stand at this year’s NMBS Exhibition.

VIP is looking forward to showcasing the innovative distinctively green coupling, along with a range of other products popular with builders, plumbing, and heating merchants across the UK.

The NMBS Exhibition, organised by the National Merchant Buying Society, takes place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on Wednesday 11th April 2018.

VIP is looking forward to welcoming visitors to its stand (number 253) where there will be a special product offer and a prize draw for exhibition visitors throughout the day.

VIP Commercial Director Jon Crean said: “This is a great opportunity to meet and talk with our many clients in the builders merchant sector. Also, to show them, and potentially new customers, what we have to offer.

“We will be displaying our range of VIPSeal® flexible couplings, which we added to in 2017 with the launch of the VIPSealChem coupling for use on pipe systems where a high degree of resistance to chemicals or extreme temperatures is needed.

“The patent-pending product dramatically simplifies the joining of pipes, speeding up installation, reducing costs, and minimising operational downtime, because it is just as easy to fit as all other VIPSeal® couplings.

“VIPSealChem has been enthusiastically welcomed by builders, plumbing, and heating merchants already, so we’re excited by this opportunity to present it at such a popular trade event as the NMBS Exhibition.”

VIPSeal® is a versatile range of rubber couplings and adaptors for joining and repairing low pressure and non-pressured pipes of any material and size combination.

Products are designed, developed, tested, and manufactured all under one roof at VIP’s HQ and manufacturing centre in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

Jon Crean said: “Builders merchants benefit from VIP being in control of the entire development and production process, ensuring our products set the highest performance and quality standards.

“Our ability to develop VIPSealChem is an example of the added value we deliver. It also means we can also turn around off-shelf and bespoke products in a matter of hours, not days, helping merchants deliver the best service to their customers.”

You can find more information on VIPSeal® flexible couplings and tickets to the exhibition can be booked via the NMBS website.

DN2000 VIPSeal coupling arrives in super quick time!

When one of the major German pipeline contractors needed a DN2000 external pipe repair coupling within 24 hours, they turned to the leading European manufacturer, VIP Polymers, for a solution. 

Dietmar Deuring, VIP’s representative for the German region, explained the client’s requirements; “The contractor called me at 11 am local time and explained that they needed a very large external repair seal to be delivered on site the following day. I explained that as an actual manufacturer rather than a fabricator who simply assemble bought in components, we are able to offer exceptionally fast response times throughout Europe”.

The VIPSeal flexible coupling was installed the following afternoon in super quick time!

Middle East project secured!

Cambridgeshire based rubber sealing gasket manufacturer VIP-Polymers has in recent months started supplying large diameter sealing gasket contracts secured in Qatar. The contracts won are in excess of £1m and still continue into 2016.

 

The predominantly DN1600 large “Tyton” sealing gaskets enable ductile iron pressure pipe to be joined enabling the transportation of both dirty and clean potable drinking water. VIP-Polymers are one of the only gasket manufacturers to hold potable water certification for temperatures up to 70 degrees – another factor which resulted in the contracts being successfully secured. 

 

The investment forms part of the major infrastructure project within Qatar as part of the 2022 World Cup programme which includes building 174 hotels, 12 stadiums, the spending of $4bn on the Qatar-Bahrain causeway and a further $20bn on the building and expansion of the road network. 

 

As a result of winning the contracts, VIP has invested a significant six-figure sum in manufacturing equipment including a new large bespoke compression moulding press. VIP is now capable of producing single piece moulded gaskets of up to DN2200.

 

VIP-Polymers managing director John Millar said “The machine comes with many benefits allowing us not only to increase our manufacturing capacity but to upgrade our capability. By investing in the latest technology we can ensure that we are able to continue to offer our customers the high level of quality and service they expect from us.”
