Fletchrose and Integrated Services launch supply chain solution

22 November 2012

Liverpool building contractor and heating company, Fletchrose is working in partnership with Wolseley UK's Integrated Services to develop a dedicated supply solution for its business.

Integrated Services' bespoke supply solution, tailored to Fletchrose's needs, is now open on the Fletchrose head office site at Aintree Business Park, with an embedded member of staff running supply operations.

A specialist division within Wolseley UK, Integrated Services offers bespoke integrated supply chain solutions, including stores management and procurement models, to clients responsible for large residential social housing estates, major construction projects and off-site construction.

Fletchrose is currently the only independent contractor in Merseyside to be working with Integrated Services in this way and expects to see significant efficiency savings on managed procurement supply chain and construction projects, by using Integrated Services' expertise and experience to manage the supply of all materials, rather than procuring through multiple sources.

Paul Durose, Managing Director of Fletchrose said: “This is a fantastic move for us that will allow us to have direct access to our essential heating products, from boilers to accessories and equipment.

“On a broader level, Integrated Services' commitment to us, in providing this service, is testament to our growth, financial stability and buying power. As the only contractor in Merseyside working with Integrated Services, we are able to further consolidate our position as a leader in our field.”

When planning the supply solution, Integrated Services offered Fletchrose the flexibility to choose from a suite of options, to ensure the right solution was designed for the Fletchrose business.

Paul added: “This is a real milestone for us and will help us build on our excellent delivery and service provision. On so many levels this is excellent news for Fletchrose.”

Andrew Harnick, Regional Trading Manager North, Integrated Services said: “We're very pleased to be working with Fletchrose on this new supply chain solution and we're confident that we will deliver significant results, from reduced costs and better service to flexibility and enhanced performance tracking. We're also committed to continuous improvement - so performance should improve the longer we work with them.”

The specialist supply chain and procurement division has helped hundreds of organisations, including hospitals, schools, supermarket chains, local authorities and large residential housing estates, to cut construction costs through smarter and more efficient procurement.
