In this issue of Industry Update, we are pleased to announce Thomas Dudley as our Plumbing and Bathroom Company of the Month.
Over 100 years ago Thomas Dudley set up his own foundry that would one day transform the plumbing and bathroom industry. After many years of progressive growth, 2020 introduced the following strategic acquisitions that saw Masefield-Beta, McDonald Diecasting, Waterfit and Rugby Plastics join as one under the Thomas Dudley brand. Then, later that year, all Thomas Dudley Plumbing businesses merged to create TYDE which is now known as a market leading business supplying plumbing products.
Based in Dudley, West Midlands, TYDE is the home of over 6,000 trusted plumbing parts. Its team of highly skilled experts carefully innovate, design and develop a large range of products and services intended to solve customers’ problems and ultimately make life in the plumbing and heating world easier. “We are committed to UK manufacturing and our state-of-the-art facilities produce innovative plumbing supplies for installers and end-users. Our approach is to remain the place to go for high-quality, long-lasting plumbing products. Our motto is “One order, one invoice and one delivery,” because if you buy something from us, you won’t need to worry about coming back with any problems,” stated Paul Weddle, Business Unit Director.
As specialists in the plumbing and bathroom sectors across OEM, specification and installer markets, TYDE has a team of dedicated, passionate and innovative thinkers that provide the highest level of customer service and willing to work hard to meet all customers’
needs and budgets. Paul added, “We have developed a proven ability to solve customer problems. Whether you are looking to overcome a challenge associated with an application, product, or service, we can work with you to provide the perfect solution.”
Two new products worth noting include the new Dudley OSMO® F1 and T1 Cisterns, to which TYDE is proud to say that the OSMO® F1 is the world’s first front access serviceable cistern.
Fitted with the Dudley Turbo Edge syphon, the Dudley OSMO® F1 guarantees leak-free flush mechanism. Made in Britain, and approved by WRAS, it has been designed for use with WC furniture and IPS panelling. Its stylish, versatile, easy to fit and service and is perfect for domestic and commercial applications where it can confidently be installed in fitted furniture, behind walls and to most partitioning materials.
The Dudley OSMO® T1 incorporates a reversible cistern body, achieving multiple inlet and outlet options and comes with an easy top access with snaplock lid™. It also has a flushpipe stability system with SureLock™ bracket and is perfectly designed to be mounted behind IPS, within compact voids or on timber and steel framed pods.
Looking ahead, TYDE will continue developing new products and services for its customers as it also looks to enter new markets both here in the UK and overseas. But, at the heart of every successful business, the real value added so to speak, lies in its employees and loyal customers. Paul highlighted, “We have a dedicated team working at TYDE who are always ready to go the extra mile for our customers. We will always place our customers at the heart of everything that we do.”
