Having outgrown its head office in Scunthorpe, the Builders' Merchant Company (BMC) has relocated its administration and contract sales function to new premises in Humberston, Cleethorpes.
The company felt it had look after the “back room boys” as well as the “Hooray Henry sales team”. It percieves the move as a response to the need to ensure that the many rapid changes driven by the pandemic in terms of stock availability and price movements, were reflected in front line sales immediately.
The aim is to keep its pricing constently up to date, while working heavily on the inter company distribution of material, ensuring it has the right stock in the right place, at the right price.
Jane Thomson, Finance Director of BMC, said: “I’m so pleased to now have a head office that reflects the image of the company and allows us the potential growth that we are looking for. It is fabulous that we now have the space to fully integrate the Purchase Ledger. Price Book, Credit Control and Stock Management under the same roof, together with the bandwidth to really investigate our social media offering and marketing opportunities.”
