Chandlers is now a supplier of PermaRoof’s Firestone RubberCover EPDM product through its nine South East, West Midlands and London branches.
Through the partnership, Chandlers Roofing Supplies – which is made up of nine branches located in the South East, West Midlands and London – has now become a supplier of PermaRoof’s popular Firestone RubberCover EPDM product.
As one of the largest importers and distributors of Firestone RubberCover EPDM, PermaRoof says it welcomes the partnership as a positive step towards providing greater national supply of the product – with an ever-growing list of suppliers operating across the country, meaning the product is now available in every postcode across the UK.
Adrian Buttress, Managing Director of PermaGroup, said: “Meeting the demand for essential roofing products is our top priority, so we’re thrilled to be embarking on this new partnership with the team at Chandlers Roofing Supplies. It is important that as an industry we continue to find ways to support construction so, despite the supply chain challenges experienced over the past 18 months, it’s fantastic to see new collaborative opportunities like this coming through to help meet roofing product demand. We can’t wait to begin this new chapter as we continue to bolster our list of suppliers.”
The strategic partnership is a result of discussions between Chandlers’ Flat Roofing Manager, Jitendra Tailor, and PermaRoof’s National Commercial Manager, Sunny Lotay (left).
Sunny said: “Jitendra and I have a longstanding professional history having worked together over the years. After listening to and understanding the requirement Chandlers had for a reputable EPDM supplier, I enlisted the support of our Area Sales Manager for the south, Tony Pitts, to implement a plan of action. The way Tony’s handled this partnership is a testament to his ability to understand what a customer needs, and we’re looking forward to following this long-term partnership as it gets underway.”
Jitendra said: “It only seemed natural to find an EPDM supply partner that delivers not only a recognised BBA-approved EPDM system, but also the service and brand that PermaRoof provides, to ensure that our customers and internal teams receive the correct product and information from day one.
“Throughout the meetings and discussions with the PermaRoof team, we’ve received fantastic support and knowledge to implement a roll out of stock, as well as the training required to ensure a smooth launch.”
