Pipe Center wins NG Bailey contract

Published:  26 March, 2013

Pipe Center has won a prestigious and exclusive supply contract with NG Bailey.

Pipe Center will supply NG Bailey with all mandatory mechanical commodity products under an exclusive single source supplier deal that commenced in December 2012.

Fifteen strategically located Pipe Center branches around the UK will service NG Bailey’s branch network, ensuring maximum operational efficiency and order fulfilment. Additional service commitments such as 24-hour turnaround on selected applications and quotes, a specialist technical heating team, monthly measurement and reporting, will also add value.

Scott Craig, sales and marketing director of Pipe Center and Climate Center, said: “This marks a real milestone in Pipe Center’s history and we’re thrilled to be working in partnership with the UK’s leading independent building services contractor.

“Its reputation for excellence matches our own, and I am confident that we will deliver exactly what we promised: excellent customer service, an impressive stock portfolio and orders fulfilled by an unsurpassed branch network.

“The fact we’ve managed to win NG Bailey’s business demonstrates our service proposition is resonating with customers, and I hope this is the beginning of another long and enduring relationship.”

Simon Roberts, sourcing manager at NG Bailey, said: “Pipe Center impressed us with their customer and service-driven approach, measurable OTIF delivery promise, extensive stock holding and widest geographical reach in the sector, as did their pricing.

“NG Bailey’s ongoing commitment to value and innovation means we embrace new partnerships and I look forward to working with Pipe Center to achieve great results.”

The 15 new sites will be located in Aberdeen, Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Exeter, Glasgow (Port Dundas), Leeds, London, Manchester (Helmet Street), Newcastle, Slough, Southampton, Swansea, West Bromwich and West Horndon.
