PipeSnug is the evolution of an idea by Chris Burdett, a builder and bricklayer with over 25 years’ experience in the trade.
Let Chris explain: “The PipeSnug concept came to me out on site one day when I was preparing to point mortar around a waste pipe for what seemed like the millionth time. I realised a simple fitting would save so much time compared to mixing mortar or siliconing around the pipe, as well as blending into the fabric of the building visually.
Chris met Alex Lever (through their kids’ school) and discussed his idea one evening over a drink. As you do. Alex has founded and run a number of companies, in a wide range of industry sectors, and was excited with the potential of the product as there really did not seem to be anything like it on the market.
As it is said, the best ideas are the simple ones!
The two of them decided to set up a company, Snug Solutions. Patents were obtained, designs drawn up, prototypes created and tested (again and again!) and over two years later the first PipeSnugs rolled off the production line.
Chris and Alex continue to expand the range of PipeSnugs and develop other great ideas for the construction and plumbing sector.
