Graham and Jewson have been appointed to supply in-house contractor teams with plumbing, heating and general maintenance materials for Places for People Group.
The new contract is to supply one of the Group’s companies: Places for People Homes, the property management arm which is responsible for 48,000 homes across England and Wales.
Graham Plumbers’ Merchant has been appointed a national contract to supply boilers, heating spares and radiators, while builders’ merchant Jewson will supply general maintenance materials in the North East, North West, South and West Yorkshire, South Midlands and South East areas.
“The combined national reach of both merchants was a key factor in the decision,” says Richard Williams, procurement manager at Places for People. “Graham and Jewson will hold core stock in branch for our in-house maintenance teams; delivering materials directly to site when needed or through a van replenishment service. These solutions will help to improve our efficiency and productivity.”
