Optimaxx targets builders’ merchants 25 February 2021

Optimaxx Products Ltd has experienced continuous growth over recent years, which the company states turned exponential in 2020. Now with its single biggest leap forward to date, Optimaxx’ full range is available in all 230 Wickes stores across the UK.

This includes Optimaxx’ range of extreme performance woodscrews, which the company points out feature a number of unique application benefits. “Tradespeople require their tools for trade work to be nothing less than perfect. For this reason, we strive to deliver genuine innovation,” states the company.

The Optimaxx collection includes an array of woodscrew sizes, ranging from 3.6mm x 16mm to 6mm x 180mm screws and 4mm x 30mm to 6mm x 60mm in boxed screws. As well as this there is also the Maxx Tubs of flooring and decking screws, as well as an assortment of woodscrew storage cases – including the 1,000 piece compact case.

The compact case is the latest addition to the Optimaxx range, an all round convenient solution for screw storage. The case features seven removable and reconfigurable compartments of three sizes with 1,000 screws of seven popular Optimaxx woodscrew sizes.

“This is a great testament to the products quality and performance and a brilliant step forward in becoming widely available to all tradespeople and DIYers. With many more builders merchants taking on the range to better serve the demand daily, this development will become a much needed supply to some of the demand in the market,” reports Opimaxx.
