Rexel UK introduces dedicated facilities management team

Published:  27 November, 2013

As part of an ongoing strategic focus, Rexel UK has announced a dedicated facilities management team with the rationale of ensuring best value and unrivalled support for those working in the sector.

The result of four years consistent growth, the team of 30-plus staff, fronted by head of facilities management for Rexel UK, Wayne Bridgehouse, comprises eight national client managers and separate regional teams under the Newey & Eyre and WF Senate banners.

The overriding objective is to alleviate the growing complexity of specification for facilities managers. Taking leverage of the Rexel Group’s global supplier relationships, customers can take advantage of over 20,000 products from all the leading brand manufacturers available from any banner, while being assured of consistent best pricing and readily available stock.

With sustainable innovation at the forefront, key solutions include energy monitoring, lighting and controls, power factor correction, renewables and other technologies, in addition to the full scope of procurement services.

More so, customers are offered full support with their own dedicated account manager working with them at each step of the way to help ensure the most cost-effective solutions and help drive efficiencies in operating costs. Core areas of focus include operational and transactional improvements, supply chain consolidation and IT integrations.

Mr Bridgehouse explained: “The task for the modern facilities manager is becoming increasingly complex. As well as dealing with changes in legislation and carbon-heavy taxes, there is the continual evolution of product innovation and green technology. As such, when it comes to product specification, it can be hard to know where to begin and which supplier to trust.

“As such, our expert facilities management team are able to provide a tailored support arm. With an onus on adding tangible commercial value, our aim is to not only provide best value goods but ensure consistency of service, backed with logistical support through our network of 400+ branches, availability of energy saving solutions and provision of the latest technologies.”
