Travis Perkins, which is part of Travis Perkins plc and is the UK’s largest distributor of materials to the construction sector, is set to relocate to a bigger site from its current Worksop address. The new branch is set to open its doors on the 11th of July with the vision being the first choice for trade customers in Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.
The existing eight-strong team will transfer to the new site, and Travis Perkins has recruited an extra eight colleagues for full-time positions, making a total of 16.
The new Worksop branch is two acres in size and as part of Travis Perkins' new ambitions to reduce carbon emissions by 90%, the site will include electric forklift trucks and electric charging points. These innovations will help to deliver on its ambition of decarbonizing its fleet and becoming a net-zero carbon producer.
The site also boasts a Hire Service that allows customers to hire tools, plant and equipment and more. Furthermore, its brand new Benchmarx kitchen display showroom offers a wide range of high-quality kitchen ranges, and a hard landscaping display, increasing Travis Perkins’ offering to customers.
As well as stocking bricks, the branch offers an extended range in the yard, including timber, blocks, drainage and lintels.
Customers will be given the choice to trade in-branch and online by using the Travis Perkins App – an industry-leading App and collaborative effort created with customers to help them not only work smarter but save time by allowing them to check stock on the go from their local branch and order instantly with their personal trade prices.
Additionally, the branch offers a fast and convenient one hour Click & Collect service and next day delivery as well as a Branch Delivery Tracking Service, which gives customers the best possible delivery notifications in real-time without having to make a telephone call, saving customers time.
These innovations are designed to save Travis Perkins customers time; something which is reported as their biggest pain-point. Combined, these provide a one-stop personalised experience, whether on the move, on site, in-branch - whenever and wherever they need it.
Branch manager Russell Kemp says about the relocation, “We’re really excited about the move to a bigger site. We’re doing what matters for the trade in Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire and this branch will have everything they need, when and where they need it, and will deliver them value, convenience and consistency.
“The fact that eight new jobs have been created because of the branch relocation is a huge bonus too. It means we’ll be able to support all of our customers with choice, quality, convenience and brilliant service day-in, day-out and offer a fantastic delivery and collection service that doesn’t compromise them on time.”
Travis Perkins recently won National Merchant of the Year at the Builders’ Merchant’s Journal Awards.
