House builder Barratt Developments has renewed its contract with builders merchant Jewson to be the company’s preferred supplier of constructional timber.
The house builder renewed its contract, worth approximately £2m, with Jewson for a third year running. Barratt Developments plans to build around 15,000 new homes across the UK over 2014.
The builders’ merchant will be supplying Canadian Lumber Size (CLS) constructional timber for internal partitioning of new homes to be built across the country.
Jon Walker, group procurement manager for Barratt Developments, said: “We renewed the contract with Jewson in January this year and we had developed a good relationship with the builders’ merchant prior to that. The main reason for renewing the contract was due to service levels. Jewson has performed particularly well over the last year and is a very professional company. As we get busier and our supply chain gets stretched, knowing that Jewson can meet that demand is reassuring.”
Ian Finnie, House builder sales manager at Jewson, added: “It’s our third year with Barratt Developments and we are pleased to win the contract again. Working with Barratt is very close to my heart. Having developed the business with them, I relish the opportunity to do more work for the company.”
