New Headline Sponsor Graham Plumber’s Merchant said: “Graham Plumber’s Merchant is delighted to sponsor Stopcocks’ Women Installers Together Conference this year, recognising the work Stopcocks is doing to encourage women into industry. The Women Installers Together Conference is an exciting event run by a company that has the potential to alter the face of the plumbing industry for the better.”
Clare Hindley, new sponsor Redrow’s new entrant programmes manager, added: “It’s very heartening to see barriers actively being broken down in our industry. That can only be a great thing for customers and the construction industry.”
