With US patent granted status and a highly receptive market, this is a fantastic opportunity to develop retail/hire partnerships with Uni-Prop International Ltd across the United States.
IPSWICH, ENGLAND, March 02, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Uni-Prop International Ltd. today announced that it is seeking distribution partners in the USA to open retail and hire channels for its award-winning steel props and struts (which have been featured by the BBC).
This is a unique opportunity for USA-based retailers and hire shops to become authorised distributors of the products, which are patented in the USA, UK, Australia and Chile. Invented in Britain, Uni-Prop® products have created a positive reaction in the construction industry, because they are the first and only adjustable props that quickly convert to safely delivery up to 2T of precisely controlled power. It is the addition of this option that makes Uni-Prop® so special and sets it apart from all existing devices that are used on virtually every building site across the globe. Recognised with a number of business awards, the product exemplifies innovative design and function, which also improve the construction process, with a heavy accent on resulting health and safety benefits. Uni-Prop®s have been used on high profile construction projects at the Houses of Parliament and the Palace of Westminster.
As global interest in the products increases, the patents give Uni-Prop® an important competitive advantage in its export markets. The Hartman Group in Australia is already distributing the products across the Australian continent via Bunnings, the leading DIY superstore outlet.
The construction industry in the USA has more than 733,000 employers with over 7 million employees and creates nearly $1.4 trillion worth of structures each year (according to Associated General Contractors of America).
The Uni-Prop® has already generated interest in the USA, with construction and hire companies eager to get their hands on the British products. Some of the key features include:
• NEW – A global first in hydraulic assisted temporary support.
• UNIQUE - The only adjustable prop with manual and hydraulic functions.
• PROFITABLE - Unlocks significant incremental revenues from the hire of the stand-alone hydraulic assembly.
• PROVEN – Already used by thousands of professional builders around the world.
• BRITISH - Innovated in the UK to BS EN 1065 with global patents in place.
• OPPORTUNITY – Be the first to market in the USA with an exclusive distribution agreement for your business.
The USA patent reserves the rights for Uni-Prop International Ltd to take legal action against anyone who makes, uses, sells or imports Uni-Prop®s without permission. Closer to home, in the UK the Uni-Prop® is available through a network of hire shops and builders' merchants – and is also accredited by the Hire Association Europe.
The Uni-Prop® models can be supplied with a galvanised finish, which make them incredibly attractive to the hire market; where the rust-proofing will keep the product looking as good as new and maintenance issues are all but eliminated. An additional benefit for large hire operations is that the Uni-Prop® can be corporate branded – a value-added bonus that increases brand awareness and makes the product easily identifiable on site.
