October 15 2010 – Leading distributor Buck & Hickman has launched a new catalogue called ‘Safety Matters; which is the definitive guide for tradesmen and engineers looking for the latest PPE, workwear and health and safety products at market-leading prices.

The catalogue which was launched at this year’s Safety & Health Expo features all the leading brands and contains over 7,000 products that are available for next-day delivery.

Howard Luft, Buck & Hickman’s Managing Director, said: “Our sales of safety-related products have grown massively over the last few years and we believe we are now one of the largest distributors in the UK. We are still perceived by many customers as being primarily a supplier of tools and maintenance products, so the new Safety Matters catalogue has been designed to change that perception and emphasise that we are now a very serious player in this important market sector.”

To order any of the products featured in ‘Safety Matters’, log on to www.buckandhickman.com or visit your local Buck & Hickman branch. You can also call 08450 510150 for further information. Buck & Hickman is part of The BSS Group plc, a market-leading distributor of specialist trades.
