Saint-Gobain Pipelines Initiative makes Rapid Work of Projects


Saint-Gobain Pipelines has announced great sales success with its RapidFlange initiative – created to provide a dedicated unit of support to the pump, mechanical and electrical (M&E) sectors.

RapidFlange is a three-fold initiative established by Saint-Gobain Pipelines to meet the increased demand from the M&E sector for quick turnaround of enquiries and orders, detailed technical input and a comprehensive range of products.

The initiative combines the company’s extensive technical expertise with new CAD resources, providing a fast, proactive and flexible service.

The unit has steadily built a loyal client portfolio and is now poised to further develop and extend its offering across the M&E market place. One of its clients, Anglian Water, has bought £473,000 worth of Saint-Gobain Products. One of the biggest Anglian Water projects to be supplied with Saint-Gobain pipes through RapidFlange is Rushbrooke WTW where more than £50,000 of pipes were supplied.

Stewart Collier of Saint-Gobain Pipelines, comments on the initiative: “Going forward, our focus will be to work closely with water utilities to help deliver their objectives, work in partnership with contractors and develop long term relationships. We will continue to offer a full spectrum of support tools including take-offs/extractions of bills of materials and optimisation of design to ensure the most cost-effective solution is achieved through early collaboration.

“Our intention is to utilise frameworks to their full potential, encourage early involvement throughout the supply chain process and drive out cost whilst complying with current standards and regulations.”
