Customer Spotlight: NBS increases the visibility of Gripsure's product line
Major manufacturer of non-slip decking products Gripsure has teamed up with NBS. We spoke to Tom Anderson, Gripsure's Head of Sales UK & Ireland, to find out how NBS is increasing its visibility to specifiers.
Gripsure are the largest manufacturer of non-slip decking products in Europe and aim to create wonderful outdoor spaces which can be safely used all year round. From long boardwalks to outdoor seating areas to residential decks, Gripsure offer a range of products to best suit the requirements of different applications. With such a large variety of products, Gripsure need to increase its visibility to specifiers – and they found that NBS was the perfect platform to do just that.
With its products now listed on NBS Source, Gripsure have increasingly seen specifiers take the initiative and select its products, sometimes without any prior discussion. After 15 years in the industry, Gripsure already have established themselves; now they are finding that having its products available on NBS is helping enhance its already impressive reputation.
Tom Anderson, Gripsure’s Head of Sales UK & Ireland said… With NBS having such an active user base who are on the lookout for products for their projects, it was obvious to partner with them. The platform gives us great exposure for specifiers to find us, engage with us, and discuss their project with us. It allows us to support them and suggest choices to overcome specific design criteria or project challenges.
We also believe NBS source is the ideal platform to launch our new non-combustible deck board – SHERA decking which meets the updated building regulations and fire safety advice. With specifiers able to amend the search criteria to find products which meet specific standards, we are hoping designers can explore this exciting new product.
The NBS team are helpful, and they want their partners to succeed. For construction product manufacturers like us, the NBS platform makes our products visible to a highly targeted audience. From product listings, and literature to social media posts, the exposure NBS give us is great to get the word out about our innovative products.
