West Sussex-based membership group The IPG is celebrating its fifth anniversary, having been established in 2013 by Robin Beal to support independent plumbing, heating and bathroom specialists.

According to The IPG, it started trading with only a handful of members and suppliers, and has since developed into “the biggest and fastest-growing membership group in the plumbing and heating sector”.

The IPG employs 14 staff and has more than 200 member outlets with a combined turnover of more than £400m, and is partnered with more than 90 suppliers.

“I’m incredibly proud of what The IPG has become,” said Beal. “When we first started the company, we had to approach both potential members and suppliers and show them The IPG vision. However, since those days there hasn’t been a month where we haven’t taken on at least one supplier or member.”

Beal added: “Our message is ‘stronger together’, and that is something we have definitely seen. Only recently we discovered that our members had experienced a double-digit year-on-year revenue growth. I’m hopeful that this trend will only continue as the group goes from strength-to-strength.”
