Kedel Limited launch a new ‘Trade Only’ Website to supply recycled plastic building materials to the construction industry.
Practical Benefits and Lifetime Cost Savings
Besides government legislation, the increasing use of recycled plastic materials in the construction industry is driven by persuasive practical advantages, and substantial lifetime cost saving benefits.
Recycled Plastic Building and Construction Materials do not rot or need painting and are difficult to vandalise, keeping housing stock from developing that depressing ‘run down’ look.
Recycled plastic materials last at least 5 times longer than treated wood. (WRAP Cost Comparison – Recycled plastic vs Treated Timber)
Construction Professionals Demand Recycled Plastic
Use of Recycled Plastic building materials has been growing steadily since the signing of the Kyoto Agreement on climate change.
Recent studies by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change indicate global warming poses grave dangers of rising sea levels that could overwhelm the Thames Barrier by 2100, flooding the capital.
Reducing our contribution to global warming is an urgent matter that is beginning to focus minds.
“A new Kedel Trade and Wholesale Website was necessary to serve the growing demand for recycled plastic materials from the building and construction sector”, says Dermot Walch, Kedel’s Sales and Marketing Director.
Kedel supplied Recycled Plastic Decking to Sir Robert McAlpines for the platform construction of the ArcelorMittal Orbital Tower at the 2012 Olympic Park in London.
New building regulations necessitated the use of Recycled Plastic Decking to help reduce the carbon footprint of what is now, the tallest public sculpture in the UK.
A Family Affair
“Our family started out 4 years ago retailing recycled plastic products, but without knowing what level of demand would come from each market sector,” explained Lewis Walch, the eldest of three brothers Co-Directing Kedel’s expansion. (left to right: Kieran, Lewis, and Dermot Walch – the name ‘Kedel’ is derived from their first names).
Institutions and Local Government Lead the Way
Local Government and Housing Associations are reducing their maintenance and replacement budgets as much as 80% by installing recycled plastic fencing, T&G back Gates and Cladding in Recycled Plastic Wood.
A ‘One-Stop-Shop’ for Recycled Plastic Building Materials
“Each market has different needs. So we’ve created a shop front to meet the different expectations of our growing customer base in the hope that we can serve them better,” says Production Manager, Kieran Walch – a colourful character with Crocodile Dundee leather hat, and for a 57-year-old, a sickeningly healthy looking ponytail of long blond hair.
Based on a lifetime in the building and construction sector, Kieran, was keen to emphasis the One-Stop-Shop value of the new Construction Trade Website.
“We’ve given construction professionals, architects and specifiers an easy to use ‘One-Stop-Shop’ for everything in Recycled Plastic that the Building Industry will ever need, at the discount levels they expect,” he says.
Generous Trade Discounts
In sharp contrast to his more casual brothers, Lewis Walch comes suited and booted, and claims to look years younger than the other two:
“A trade website, with a broader range of Recycled Plastic Product Categories, specifically for the construction and building industries, clearly displayed, means you can find what you want quickly,” he explained.
“Our fixed discounts, based on total basket value, helps too”, he added, “and It makes life simpler for our trade professionals, so they don’t have to wait for quotes. They can quickly calculate the overall cost of a project without waiting for a response from our sales team.”
