KENT: Jablite Insulation has secured a major new national agreement with H&B Group, one of the UK’s fastest-growing buying organisations for independent builders’ merchants.

The two-year agreement sees Jablite become H&B Group’s preferred supplier of EPS products for construction, civil engineering and decorative applications to its network of 65 independent builders’ merchants.

Jablite won the business after a rigorous tendering process, demonstrating their high levels of product quality, customer service and innovation as well as their commitment to helping H&B branches grow its sales.

Mike Tattam, Jablite’s UK sales manager, said: “We are delighted to become H&B Group’s preferred EPS supplier, which is testament to the high quality of our products, backed by our extensive resources. The Group’s ethos of ‘we do what we say’ is completely compatible with the way we work with our customers and we look forward to helping their members grow their sales for expanded polystyrene products.”

Keith Gerrett of Lliw Building Supplies, key member of the committee of H&B Group, said: “We carry out intensive tendering processes to identify the right suppliers to meet the needs of our members.  We are confident that Jablite has the resources and commitment to customer service to maximise business opportunities through sales of EPS.”
