Sovini appoints new director for trade supplies business

The former head of operations is now responsible for the growth and development of the new business, which launched in 2014.

Part of the Sovini Group in Merseyside, Sovini Trade Supplies exceeded its profit target of £750k in its first year of trading.

Harrison-Carroll said: “Setting up this new business has certainly been challenging, but after its first pivotal year we surpassed our goals and expectations; which the team and I are extremely proud of.

“But this is just the start. Our sales target for the next four years is £20 to £25 million, which we plan to achieve by investing in our people, systems and environment to provide forward-thinking and innovate supply chain solutions to existing and future customers across the North West.”

She has been with the group since January 2010, initially employed as a contracts manager for One Vision Housing. After the set up on the Sovini Group structure in January 2012, she was appointed as group procurement manager.

Since heading up the building supplies company, she has secured supplier contracts to companies including Keepmoat, Mark One Interiors, Upholland Property Services, and North Liverpool Construction.

Earlier this year Anita was recognised as a trailblazer for women in the construction sector, after being named ‘Business Leader of the Year’ at the Women in Construction Awards 2015.

As part of the Sovini Group, capacity generated by Sovini Trade Supplies will be reinvested in the group’s non-profit social housing partners, supporting their investment in new homes and developing local communities.
