BSS Industrial has joined the Business South Champion Programme, uniting together with businesses across the Central South to work collaboratively for economic progression in the region.

BSS is the UK’s number one distributor of pipeline and heating solutions, with a nationwide branch network of over 50 locations, including a regional base for the South in Eastleigh.

The company has a key role in the supply chain for the construction industry, and prides itself on leading the way in industry standards, innovation, and new product development in its markets.

The organisation is also an advocate for sustainability in its business, and the construction industry as a whole, working with manufacturers towards growth in renewable and sustainable technology.

BSS and many of its customers were also heavily involved with the establishment of the NHS Nightingale Hospitals during last year’s first lockdown, ensuring materials were delivered to site regardless of the challenges and restrictions in place at the time.

In joining Business South, BSS further strengthens an established network of Business Champions working collectively for the economic benefit of the Central South region.

Through its Champions platform, Business South unifies business leaders and stakeholders to help improve economic prosperity and facilitates sector development through dedicated Action Groups.

Ian Atkins, South & South West Regional Director at BSS said:

“We’re delighted to be joining the network of Business Champions in the region.  With branches and customers across the South & South West, we are well aware of the importance of collaborative working and the key role we can play in supporting the infrastructure of our region.”

Leigh-Sara Timberlake, Group Chief Executive of Business South said:

“Macroeconomic issues, including Brexit and COVID-19, have put unprecedented pressure on supply chains across many industries, affecting every level of business in the economy.

BSS not only forms a vital part of the supply chain in the building services industry both regionally and internationally, it also leads the way in championing its sector and supporting its customers and businesses in overcoming mutual challenges.

Business South looks forward to working with BSS to support the sector it works within.”
