Wincanton has extended its arrangement to manage the distribution of Marley Ltd’s products across the UK until 2023. This five-year contract will continue a strong working relationship between the two companies that stretches back to 2008.
Marley provides pitched roofing solutions for its customers in the construction industry, including concrete and clay tiles and fittings, accessories and timber battens.
Wincanton will continue to manage Marley’s distribution from across six UK-wide sites; Beenham, Bridgend, Burton-upon-Trent, Glasgow, Keele and Gainsborough. The Gainsborough site specialises in the manufacturing and distribution of timber roofing and decking products, alongside the transport of inbound materials from port.
The contract uses a dedicated fleet of specialist vehicles with support from Wincanton’s wider construction fleet of over 200 mechanical off-load vehicles, the largest in the UK.
Chris Fenton, Managing Director of Industrial & Transport at Wincanton, said:
“As the construction industry strives to meet the Government’s ambitious house building targets, we are delighted to be able to continue supporting Marley, helping them to provide the excellent levels of service their customers expect, in a safe and reliable manner.”
Paul Reed, Managing Director at Marley Ltd added:
“Wincanton understands our requirement for getting things right, first time, for our customers.
“We are delighted to have extended our transport contract with Wincanton who have the expertise, experience and the ability to adapt to the changing needs of our Customers and our business ambitions.”
This contract extension follows the renewal of Wincanton’s transportation and warehousing deal with Asda, and its transportation services renewal with British Sugar.
