PTS and Geberit – the perfect (press) fit

Sales staff at the leading plumbers merchant receive full training on the Mapress system

PTS is constantly at the cutting edge of the plumbing and heating industry and sales staff from the leading plumbers’ merchant proved this recently by completing training at Geberit’s state-of-the-art training academy in Dublin.

As part of a new partnership between the two companies, members of the sales team from PTS Ireland completed training modules on Geberit’s Mapress pressfit system.

Available in stainless steel, carbon steel and copper, Geberit Mapress is a metal pressing system that provides an efficient, safe, and reliable solution for a range of different job requirements. Thanks to the innovative pressing technology, installations can be carried out reliably and quickly without complex welding and soldering.

“We are constantly looking at the latest technology and innovations available and we believe that the Geberit Mapress system is a product range that will bring a variety of benefits to our customers,” explained Barry Lowe, Regional Sales Manager, PTS. “Mapress is already very strong within the commercial and light commerfcial sectors while it is beginning to gain traction in the domestic sector, so this will ensure we’re well prepared for this expected growth.

“Geberit is a market leader in the press-fit sector, so it makes sense to add a range of this quality to our stock profile. The brand quality and back-up service are superb and that has already been highlighted by the superb training our sales staff received from Geberit in Dublin.”

Lucas Vogan, Technical Sales Manager for Geberit, said, “We are delighted to be working with such a leading national merchant as PTS. They have fully embraced Mapress technology and have invested both time and resources into this project. This shows the level of commitment that PTS offers customers.”

He added, “Mapress offers a range of advantages for installers, not least the simple connection that ensures reliable and durable connections. The fact that it is a flame free installation also reduces the risks and other factors with more traditional methods. This technology is growing in popularity and we have no doubt that will be boosted thanks to this relationship with PTS.”

From potable water, heating, gas, solar, cooling and refrigeration and even salt water and shipbuilding applications, Geberit Mapress covers a multitude of applications – with the range now available from PTS.
