Wienerberger selects Ridgeon Group as sole distribution partner

Published:  03 June, 2011

CAMBRIDGE: Porotherm, manufactured by Wienerberger, has teamed up with Ridgeons, as its sole distribution partner for the East Anglian region.

Porotherm sales director Darren White, said: “Ridgeons is the natural partner for us in East Anglia. Speed is a critical benefit for our system and therefore it was essential that we selected a company that could fulfil multiple deliveries on a single day across a broad geographical area. Ridgeons has a track record which demonstrates they can not only deliver on this requirement, they are also able to support this impressive infrastructure with excellent product knowledge and exceptional customer service.”

Ridgeon product group manager, Allen Coote, said: “We are consistently looking to work with new suppliers that can provide our customers with high quality products that help them to meet all UK building regulations and sustainability standards, such as Porotherm. The system has a fantastic European pedigree where it has been popular for more than 30 years, and we look forward to working with the Porotherm team to ensure this product flourishes in the UK.”
