ITW’s Paslode is now being supplied in the UK by TIMco, including Paslode’s ranges of nails and fuel cells (for nail guns). TIMco Sales Director Simon Rance comments: “We recognise that consistency of delivery is very important for many of our customers who already purchase Paslode branded nail guns and so we’re delighted to be offering them the option to purchase Paslode branded nails and fuel cells along with our growing FirmaHold range. A huge advantage of buying Paslode from TIMco is that one box can just be ordered.” Paslode stock has been available from TIMco since the end of 2018.
