Grey saves the day for Jehu Construction

Celuform - 15th November 2012

When a new-build apartment block in Cardiff needed fascia and soffit boards to match the grey windows, building company Jehu Construction were in no doubt who to contact.

The company turned to their trusted supplier, PVC-UE building product manufacturer Celuform, to help them source the products in anthracite grey.

David Thomas, purchasing manager for Jehu Project Services explained: “While we are seeing more coloured window options, fascia and soffit boards tend to be white. We often have contrasting products on a building, so when the architect specified anthracite for both, we had to source the right products, and quickly.”

Celuform offered a free estimating and scheduling service, and was able to deliver the anthracite grey products, together with fixtures and fittings, within days to the housing association project in the Victoria Park area of Cardiff.

It was a fast turn around for what was a brand new product for the manufacturer.

Celuform sales and marketing director Simon Reynolds said: “This was an important project for Jehu, and we understand it is vital for our customers to be able to source the products they need as quickly as possible. This is one of the main reasons that Celuform continues to innovate. As the trends and needs of the building industry change, so must our products.”

The apartment block, a development for Cadwyn Housing Association, is now nearing completion without the costly delays involved in sourcing difficult to find or unusual products.

Mr Thomas explained that as a company Jehu Project Services has found that having trusted suppliers for certain products has driven time and cost efficiencies in the business.

“Rather than gather quotes for products for every project we stick with one supplier to save valuable time. It means that when we work up a proposal in a tendering process, we are aware of the likely costs, it also means that our invoicing department are more aware of likely charges when the bills come in.”
