Merchant framework deal signed by Re:allies

Published:  23 July, 2013

Re:allies has awarded its first merchant framework agreement to Integrated Services, a division of Wolseley UK.

Re:allies is a collaboration between housing consortia Procure Plus and Efficiency North.

The merchant framework agreement follows Integrated Services' bid to supply goods and materials for responsive maintenance and repairs at houses managed by social housing providers in the north of England.

Gwen Heap, head of operations at Re:allies, said: "Our merchant framework agreement was set up with the aim of providing registered providers of social housing with a highly efficient and effective way of dealing with responsive repairs and the sourcing of maintenance materials.

"The first merchant framework run by Procure Plus was highly successful with a great take up across its membership and with housing providers from other partnership consortia. The new model refines this offer and widens its availability across the Re:allies membership.”

Steve Selfe, head of business and operations at Integrated Services, said: "Winning the framework agreement to supply the whole of the Re:allies partnership is a real coup for Integrated Services and cements our position as a key partner in the social housing sector.”
