Two year deal will cover Tesco new builds and refurb programmes

Speedy Hire has secured a two year sole supply framework agreement with Tesco worth a total of £12m.

As a result Tesco’s supply chain contractors will be supplied by Speedy for all refurbishment and build programmes for a two year period.

Under the agreement a full range of Speedy products will be provided through their national depot network.

Vijay Vekria, buying manager for construction at Tesco, said: “We wanted a partner that understood and could support the different phases of our new build and maintenance programme by providing advice, the highest quality equipment and all on a national basis.

“Speedy was appointed because they met these needs with their impressive experience supporting major projects.”

Steve Corcoran, chief executive of Speedy, added: “Our unrivalled national network, extensive product range and increasing ’beyond hire’ capability makes us the ideal partner for significant multi-site or large property operators like Tesco to support their construction and ongoing estate maintenance.”
