Builders merchant group Buildbase have set up a new partnership with Weaver Vale Housing in Cheshire.
The partnership means the association will be able to provide a more effective repairs service for customers in Vale Royal.
The partnership saw the opening today of a new dedicated stores facility at Northwich Buildbase in Wincham, which manages the supply of all materials to the Trust’s property services teams.
By obtaining all materials directly from Buildbase the Trust’s 115 repairs and maintenance trade staff will save time and money sourcing materials, enabling them to provide a more effective service to residents across Vale Royal.
The new facility also employs three dedicated Buildbase stores personnel whose role is solely to assist Trust staff.
Graham Roberts, director of Property Services at Weaver Vale Housing Trust, said: “The Trust is delighted to open its new on-site stores at Buildbase. The new facility will enable us to provide our customers with a fast, high quality, and more cost efficient repairs and maintenance service.
“The new service will also benefit the commercial, public sector, and private individual customers of our subsidiary building company, Weaver Horizons.”
