Select Products Int'l Ltd.

Select Products International Limited (SPI), the founding division of The Select Group, has served the UK plumbing and construction trades since 1988 but the company's roots and experience within the industry go back much further.

Group Managing Director, Alan Archer began his career in 1969 with his own Plumbing Company. During the 1970s energy crisis the company's innovative design and installation of solar powered water heating systems gained recognition from America's leading manufacturer of solar powered equipment. Alan was invited to spearhead the New Products Division of the Northrup Corporation in Dallas, Texas.

Following its acquisition by the Atlantic Richfield Oil Company (ARCO) Alan managed the company's Pacific division undertaking some of the largest and most prestigious solar and energy conservation projects in the world. Over the next 10 years he held a number of senior marketing positions for major US and Japanese manufacturers specialising in the plumbing, heating and air-conditioning industries.

With a keen eye for innovative products and his entrepreneurial spirit, Alan returned to the UK in 1988 to establish Select International Limited. Initially set up to assist US based manufacturers wishing to capitalise on business opportunities within the newly expanding European community, Select Products evolved as the company began physical distribution of its US client's products.

Having successfully developed a large stockist network supplying 800+ products to 2,000 plumbing, heating, air-conditioning, engineering, maintenance and light-side builders' merchant locations across the UK and into Europe, Select Products continues to grow.

Alan's eye for a good product continues to provide a leading light of innovation within the company. The company has recently designed and begun manufacturing a unique and patented new plastic access panel called the ReversiDoor® and holds registered trademarks on numerous products. However the company's most exciting project to date is as its role as Exploitation Manager of The Alert Project.

The Alert Project is a European Consortium currently developing equipment to detect toxic asbestos fibres in the air in real-time and alarm those in the vicinity to its deadly presence. Select is responsible for exploitation and dissemination of the project and will manufacture and distribute the finished instrument when it is ready for market.

From its early trade origins to its current status as product designer, manufacturer and supplier - Select Products offers innovation, commitment, experience and a partnering attitude with the objective of bringing innovative, quality products to Merchants.
