The National Buying Group (NBG) has signed a new deal for cement with Quinn Building Products. As part of the deal, which reinforces an already strong relationship, the Irish manufacturer has offered NBG Partners exclusivity on its new Master Grade cement range as well as access to its new range of weatherproof packaged products.
The deal, which was signed during an NBG visit to Quinn’s facilities in Fermanagh and Cavan, will allow NBG merchant Partners to sell new Quinn General Purpose Cement, Master Grade Cement, and Premium Grade Cement. Quinn is also offering the group its bagged products range in new ‘yard proof’ plastic packaging.
NBG’s Keith Olver, of Palladium Building Supplies, said: “This new cement deal is testimony to the excellent partnership we already have with Quinn. Its service is excellent, and it always bends over backwards to help NBG partners. These new products will really help NBG Partners to remain competitive and offer their customers the products they want at a price that suits everyone.”
Lee Gillman, the manufacturer’s GB Sales and Marketing Director, believes that the new products will suit NBG merchants well. He said: “It is important for us as a business to be able to react to the changing customer needs, and to ensure UK merchants have the right products to offer their customers. We’re delighted to offer NBG an extended bagged cement range and we expect the new line to perform very well in 2018 with the support of the NBG.”
NBG’s Gary Olver added: “We’ve been very impressed by the scale of operations here at Quinn Building Products, and are looking forward to working closely with them again in 2018. We believe Quinn is a premier supplier to the UK’s premier buying group.”
