FASTPART HITS £500K MARK AS IT CELEBRATES ITS 10TH ANNIVERSARY
Fastpart, the official Ideal Standard and Armitage Shanks spares website, is celebrating its 10th anniversary and now boasts over 10,000 spare parts which can be ordered in record time by its customers.
Since launching in 2006, Fastpart has accumulated a registered user network of 50,000, a figure which continues to grow. The website, which was joined by a mobile offering in 2014, has received two million hits since its launch and has seen over half a million spare parts shipped across the UK.
The most requested parts dispatched by the service include flush valve seal and seal clips inlet valve and ball valve servicing kits and cover buttons.
Fastpart was named after the printed spares catalogues which Armitage Shanks offered customers in the 1980s and brought the business of ordering spares straight into the 21st century, with online video guides, downloadable instruction manuals and a dedicated team of advisors.
Richard Haynes, Head of Brand said: “In the ten years since it first launched Fastpart has seen continual growth and has accrued a great mix of homeowner and trade customers. Our offering of over 10,000 products encompasses everything Ideal Standard and Armitage Shanks has to offer, so there’s something for projects large or small.
“With the rise and rise of internet – and mobile – purchasing the website has had to adapt with consumer needs throughout its history. We look forward to seeing how it will appear and what exciting features it can provide once it hits its 20th anniversary.”
