IKO UK Group has signed a Mandated Supplier Agreement with leading independent construction and property services company, Willmott Dixon. This includes IKO Polymeric for the supply of Spectraplan TPE and Armourplan TPE single ply membranes. IKO PLC will supply its range of bituminous roofing systems IKO Permatec Hot Melt, IKO Permaphalt Mastic Asphalt and IKO Polimar cold applied liquids.
Willmott Dixon is a £1billion turnover business covering commercial, public sector construction, housebuilding and development, interior fit-outs, repair & maintenance work and even energy services. “To drive predictability in the delivery of our product IKO is our ‘first choice’ on all projects whenever we are in control of the project design and specification,” explains Tim Carey of Willmott Dixon.
“This is a significant agreement for both IKO Group and Willmott Dixon,” comments Anthony Carlyle, Managing Director of IKO Polymeric. “We’ve worked with Willmott Dixon for many years now and developed a unique online ‘hub’ that includes a product system selector and matches IKO Business Managers with projects geographically. We help with specifications, surveys, training and installation, depending on what the project needs. It’s a very successful relationship for both parties and this sole supplier mandate takes our partnership to the next level, with end-clients being the ultimate beneficiaries.”
