Jewson provides housing association with own dedicated branch

Following a long working relationship with Whitefriars Housing, going back to 2004, Jewson announces the opening of a new branch in Coventry.
Whitefriars Housing is part of the West Mercia Housing Group. They own over 30,000 homes across Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Birmingham, Coventry, and the wider West Midlands.

In April 200, Jewson secured a groundbreaking 12 year supply contract with Whitefriars Housing to provide a dedicated branch for all of their building material requirements.

As the contract has grown, Jewson have demonstrated their commitment to the partnership by providing a modernised facility in a new location, giving the housing provider easy access to the tools and materials they need.

In addition to secure stocking areas, this new site provides Whitefriars with dedicated parking facilities for its direct labour force, along with comfortable and modern welfare facilities, and a spacious meeting room.

Jewson also provide IT solutions for the housing group, making it easy for employees to reserve and order products, even when out on-site.

Steve Kirk, Whitefriars Housing director, said: “I am very pleased with the new facilities and with the planning and execution of the move. The team at Jewson continue to bring positive benefits through our partnership”

John Heathfield, Jewson sector manager, added: “Our team of Jewson employees, located at the bespoke branch, have extensive knowledge and experience which ensures that Whitefriars gets the very best from its merchant. We believe that we are well-placed to continue delivering a comprehensive service.

“This is just one example of the partnerships we have in place with our customers. We understand that every business is different and this relationship shows our commitment to providing customers with a service that meets their individual needs.”
