Jewson partners with Anglian Home Improvements
Published:  24 June, 2013

Jewson has entered into a new partnership with Anglian Home Improvements to supply Lafarge Tarmac Cement & Lime’s ready-to-use tubs to the company’s installation teams across the UK.

Jewson’s national network of branches will support the partnership, with each of Anglian Home Improvements’ 23 depots initially receiving 80 of the tubs containing Lafarge Tarmac’s Ready-to-use Mortar and Multi-purpose Concrete.

Lafarge Tarmac’s plastic tubs were rolled out nationally last October, designed specifically with the repair and home-improvement market in mind. Re-sealable, and with the ability to mix product in the tubs, they provide an ideal solution for professionals who only need a small quantity of product at a time and do not want to carry large bags of cement. The re-sealable nature of the tubs also helps to reduce waste and means that less mess is created when they are transported – an important consideration for professionals who need to keep their vans clean.

Nick Bell, key account manager for Jewson at Lafarge Tarmac, said: “We are excited to announce the new partnership with Anglian Home Improvements. As a business, we’re continually investing in new technologies to help meet the evolving needs and priorities of cement-users, so it is great to see that our latest packed product innovation has been so well received by our customers.”

A representative from Anglian Home Improvements added: “Lafarge Tarmac’s ready-to-use tubs are ideal for our installers who typically travel between customers’ homes using small quantities of cement whilst installing Anglian products. Our team carry around many different tools, spare parts and materials, so using tubbed cement product has helped to keep installation vehicles clean and tidy.”

Jewson’s sales manager Darren Marshall concluded: “We are delighted to be working with Anglian Home Improvements and Lafarge Tarmac on the delivery of this new product innovation. With over 600 Jewson branches nationwide, we are perfectly situated to support the installation teams at Anglian as they undertake repair and maintenance to properties on a daily basis.”
