Site managers from national housebuilder, Redrow Homes have named Jewson as their ‘supplier of the year’ in the South West. Employees from the Challow, Faringdon branch were awarded the prize at the Redrow Homes annual charity dinner in Bristol.
Redrow Homes is one of the branch’s largest customers so it is testament to the hard work that the team have put into meeting the company’s requirements on a daily basis and in the process, into exceeding their own targets.
With the significant increase in housebuilding in the UK, as a result of government lending schemes and an improved economy, Jewson was, at one point in 2014 was supplying materials to Redrow Homes for 18 different housing projects in the area including for 232 new homes in Bideford, Devon and for a 40-property private development in Chard, Somerset. The entire team from the Area Sales Manager to the delivery drivers were heavily involved in each project and all had a part to play in maintaining the service levels for Redrow Homes.
This staggering achievement was made all the more special, as it is the first time that the prize has been won by a builders’ merchant. Congratulations to the whole Jewson Challow team, it is well deserved!
