Wincanton and Jewson build on partnership

Chippenham-based supply chain solution provider extends contract with the UK builders’ merchants.

The new contract will see Wincanton, which is the subject of a £762 million bid from the US giant GXO Logistics, continue to fulfil deliveries of building materials to more than 400 Jewson branches across the UK.

The contract extension, which builds on a partnership that began in 2021, follows the acquisition in March 2023 of Jewson by Stark Group, a business-to-business distributor of building materials for the construction industry.

Carl Moore, Managing Director, eFulfilment, at Wincanton, said: “With the award of the contract extension we look forward to building on our collaborative relationships and developing solutions focused on professional tradespeople and the renovation and maintenance market across the UK.”

Ranald Forbes, Chief Logistics Officer at Stark Building Materials UK, said: “Jewson will be able to extend to customers the benefits that will come with our ongoing partnership with Wincanton. We look forward to continuing to innovate solutions that drive forward our transformation and plans to offer the UK’s professional tradespeople with the full value proposition they are looking for from Jewson as their partner to the trades.”
