Wolseley UK in housing trust tie

Published:  16 January, 2013

Wolseley UK has formalised its supply arrangements with Liverpool Mutual Homes. In 2011 it set up Housing Maintenance Solutions, to undertake the repair and maintenance requirements of its 15,500 housing stock.

Wolseley UK’s Integrated Services won the tender to provide construction materials, a delivery service and van stock management for staff in the field.

Grant Richardson, development director, Wolseley UK, says: “We have been supplying materials for Liverpool Mutual Homes since it was established in 2004. Being an integrated supply partner is about more than just supplying bricks and mortar. 

"Flexibility and continuous improvements to deliver better service and achieve further efficiencies is a critical part of the supply partnership, particularly in the housing sector where budgets are becoming tighter. We have worked with HMS to provide solutions to waste management, van stocks, controlling HMS owned stock and also introducing an online portal which provides them with live spend reports and key management information to track performance.”
