Staircraft wins a joint first with Travis Perkins for Barratt Group “Outstanding Partnership” award 2014
Barratt Developments Group held their Supply Chain Conference and annual dinner on Wednesday 4th April at ICC Birmingham. Following the usual format for this event, the evening includes an award ceremony where Barratt recognise those companies who in their view have consistently excelled in the quality of product and services delivered to the group throughout the year.
Andy Hamilton of Staircraft last year was presented with the supplier of the year award for “Health and Safety Excellence” by Mark Clare Group Chief Executive, which the company was very honoured to receive as it considers that this aspect is paramount to all other performance measures.
At the award ceremony, Staircraft was shortlisted for the award for Product Innovation and then to complete the honours was jointly awarded the “Outstanding Partnership” award, along with Travis Perkins.
Presenting the award, Barratt said that Staircraft has constantly engaged with them to challenge product and process design over a long period of time, and acknowledged the significant resources the company had committed to working with Barratt, to innovate around new ideas, and trial and develop these ideas to get maximum benefit and seamless implementation on site. Barratt commented that the Staircraft demonstrates an exemplary approach to working in partnership with them.
Andy Hamilton Managing Director and founder of Staircraft received the award from Mark Clare Barratt Group Chief Executive and John Adams, Group Procurement Director.
Andy commented... “It is flattering that we are recognised for the work we do, and the way we do it. Staircraft has always been prepared to make the investment in growth and innovation in advance of the needs of our customers which has enabled us to keep pace with the dramatic peak demand situations of last year. Once again we are very honoured to be acknowledged in this way and will continue to push the envelope with regards to the products and systems we supply and our significant investments last year in a new stair plant and an I joist facility will deliver to Barratt and the rest of customers considerably more value and real cost saving benefits”.
Staircraft is the UKs market leading staircase supplier to the major builder and is now entering the market this year with INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS which will present a robust fully combined offering of the I Joist floor system, decking and staircase which will deliver measurable cost saving advantages to their builder customers.
