PHEX 2015 at Alexandra Palace with the Big Wipes team

For the very first time this year, the Big Wipes team attended PHEX 2015 exhibition, held at Alexandra Palace in London in May.  For over 20 years, PHEX has been recognised as the leading regional trade exhibition series for the installer and contractor sector, offering a unique exhibition experience for exhibitors and visitors alike.

Throughout the two day event, the visiting plumbers, gas heating installers, commercial contractors and M&E engineers couldn’t believe their eyes when they were shown how Big Wipes industrial hand cleaning wipes could easily remove a whole host of grime, including PU Foam, silicone, grease, oil and oil-based paint.

Many tradespeople were also delighted to learn that the Big Wipes 4×4 formula was now available in handy sachet packs of 40 industrial wipes.  If you haven’t got space to carry a tub, no worries: the sachet pack dimensions have been designed and specified to fit perfectly into the tool pouches of most leading brands of workwear, van gloveboxes and toolbags.

HVP magazine summarised the event as follows: “There has been strong industry endorsement of the PHEX exhibitions following the successful PHEX+ event held in London in May.  This unique event showcased the latest new products and technology available for the domestic and commercial heating and plumbing sectors, with an extensive training and seminar programme on energy efficiency, gas safety, ErP and best practice.

“The event attracted a high level of support and it was evident that the visitors had a real appetite for sourcing new potential products for their business, while the collaboration with HVP magazine ensured that the Tech Talk training programme was a big success for all concerned.”

Following the event, it is extremely satisfying to receive so many strong endorsements of the show from key industry manufacturers.”
