Travis Perkins’ Managed Services team has been appointed by Northampton Borough Council as the sole supplier to its Direct Labour Organisation for repair and maintenance materials.

Travis Perkins is creating a dedicated store at its Harvey Reeves road site in Northampton to service the contract. The store will be staffed by six people who will procure, stock, deliver and administer a wide range of materials to facilitate the repair and maintenance of 12,200 properties and 750 corporate buildings owned by the council.

James Clack, sales director of Travis Perkins’ Managed Services, said: “To be appointed as the sole provider of building materials to Northampton Borough Council is testament to the trusted service and high quality products that the Travis Perkins Group has to offer. This project is especially exciting as Travis Perkins has its headquarters in Northampton.”
