Midland Lead has secured a new contract with buying group NBG (National Buying Group), rounding off a successful 2017 for the company.
We are looking forward to supplying the group’s 80 independent merchants with our range of lead products for the construction industry, which includes ancillaries as well as lead sheet.
The new customers will benefit from Midland Lead’s outstanding service, including two – three day delivery times, in-store marketing support and staff training.
Midland Lead managing director Boudewijn Tuinenburg comments: “We’re very pleased to start the year on such a positive note, not only re-contracting with our main customers, but also bringing a new customer on board in the shape of NBG. It’s fantastic to be supplying such a large group, with over 300 branches throughout the UK, and this means contractors will have even easier access to our products.
“We hope NBG members take full advantage of our customer support, including the range of product guide videos and how-to videos we’ve been producing, all of which will be available through our website in due course.”
A warm welcome to Midland Lead for our new NBG Buying Group customers
