Firebird has extended its support of local team Plymouth Argyle by becoming the football club’s new ‘back of shirt’ sponsor. The sponsorship deal, which will see the Firebird name on all Argyle shirts over the next two seasons, also includes a box for all home games, which will enable Firebird to invite groups of customers to join them for the football and hospitality. There will also be increased signage around the ground. A visit to Plymouth FC also provides an ideal opportunity to view Firebird’s showroom and training facility at the company’s new UK headquarters. Featuring an array of fully working oil-fired boilers, biomass boilers, air source heat pumps and range cookers, the impressive showroom not only enables installers to see all the products in action, but to also spend time working and training on each appliance. www.firebird.uk.com Armitage Shanks launches birthday giveaway Anaerobic sealants introduce new benefits LOCTITE 577 is a medium strength, general-purpose thread sealant for parallel/parallel and taper/parallel threads and fittings.

The customer will post a highly detailed job specification with photographs to help installers price their offer – with no need for a site visit. An installer can win the work completely online, saving valuable time and costs as a result. Once an installer’s offer is accepted, only they are able to make direct contact with the customer making the lead completely exclusive. There is no charge for providing an online offer as only the successful installer will pay a fee when their offer is accepted. For the customer this means they can compare the offers of up to five different firms via a single online dashboard. www.holmesmedia.co.uk/get-leads/ www.hpmmag.com September 2017 Dow Corning has launched a new, fast acting sealant suitable for sanitary projects in both domestic and commercial settings.
