CharCoat Passive Fire Protection is very pleased to offer our Distribution options. Based on profitability for our customers, cost savings for the end users and the promotion of our CharCoat Brand.
For all agents of manufacturers worldwide, it is a continuous struggle to win projects, not just based on the merits of the products, but also pricing. We know without doubt that our complete range of Passive Fire Protection is the most superior and highly rated range for its purpose whether for simple firestopping or for the more detailed Cable Coating, intumescent steel or insulation Projects. The continual battle to win 5% – 10% of what is quoted within your region is a true commercial struggle.
Our Distribution options takes that struggle away and gives the ability to quote products and projects with DIRECT MANUFACTURING PRICES for all of the CharCoat Range. This doesn’t just apply to Regional Distributors or Resellers, it can also be utilized by Firestop Installers, and facilities that continually upgrade their passive fire protection.
