LEAMINGTON SPA: Wolseley has been awarded a Framework Agreement for ‘Building Materials & Associated Managed Services’ by Buying Solutions, the national procurement partner for UK public services.
The company was successful in all six ‘lots’ which include building materials and managed services, industrial heating and pipeline supplies and plant hire.
The Framework enables Wolseley to provide any product or equipment within the six product groups to any public sector body – especially local authorities, Housing Associations and consortia – without the need for the customer to go through a costly competitive tender process.
Steve Ashmore, managing director – Wolseley Heavyside, said: ” We were delighted to achieve this accreditation which demonstrates our compliance with a range of criteria including financial stability, health and safety records, IT capabilities corporate responsibility and quality systems.
“It will simplify working together with our public sector customers who can be confident their collaboration with Wolseley is in line with best practice procurement processes.”
