Travis Perkins Managed Services has signed a five-year partnership worth up to £2 million per annum with One Manchester, a housing and community services provider.
The contract means Travis Perkins Managed Services is now fully responsible for One Manchester's repair and maintenance supply chain for the association's 12,000 homes in central, east and south Manchester.
Travis Perkins Managed Services will help One Manchester reduce costs and increase efficiency.
This will free up One Manchester's repair and maintenance employees and contractors to work more efficiently on the 50,000 maintenance visits they undertake every year.
Gemma McRae, regional director at Travis Perkins Managed Services, said the contract was a part of its "one million-strong portfolio of tenanted social housing properties in the UK where we are the sole provider of materials and supply chain solutions, and where we are helping to deliver efficiency through quality at an affordable price".
McRae added: "As part of this partnership, we have opened a fully refurbished and dedicated warehouse/distribution facility at One Manchester's Quattro House in East Manchester, so that the housing provider's repair and maintenance staff can have instant access to the materials they require.
"This will stock all the heavy and light side materials required, and provide everything One Manchester needs to maintain its properties. The new store comes complete with office space, communal welfare facilities and a dedicated delivery vehicle."
