h&b Group signs supplier agreement with Wrekin

Published:  17 June, 2014

Wrekin Products has recently signed a two-year agreement to supply h&b Group with geosynthetics.

The agreement is already working well for GH Brooks & Co of Harrogate, which approached Wrekin Product’s specification team for advice on a contract to stabilise ground ready for reclamation at the University of York. Wrekin Products specified and supplied a combination of E’GRID 2020 geogrid and Multitrack 1,000 non-woven geotextile to reinforce weak soils, ready for the development project.

Simon Turner, Wrekin Products’ sales director, said: “We are extremely pleased to be working with h&b Group and its members. Supporting GH Brooks and its customer to secure a prestigious contract is a great example of how our expertise and wide product range helps builders’ merchants win business.”

GH Brooks is one of h&b Groups’ 70 builders’ merchants.

Paul Beaman, chairman of the Civils Committee for h&b Group, explained: “We get better value for our independent builders’ merchants and help them to compete with the national chains on price and technical support.

“We have already built a good relationship with Wrekin Products. They offer our members a comprehensive range of geosynthetics and their merchant-only policy inspires confidence.”
