Leading architectural aluminium systems supplier Kawneer has been appointed as a new preferred supplier to John Sisk & Son, one of the largest privately owned companies in Ireland.
The new agreement with John Sisk & Son, which has a turnover of €1 billion and more than 2,000 employees, runs until the end of 2018, and encompasses its international construction companies.
Kawneer will work with the group in all the sectors it works in – residential, commercial, retail and leisure, education, healthcare and transport – on the new-build, refurbishment and restoration sides.
As part of the new three-year framework agreement Kawneer will deliver technical support at every stage, from initial concept design at BIM Level 2 and the preparation of specifications, through to installation through the manufacturer’s national network of approved specialist sub-contractors.
Kawneer sales and marketing director Mark Clemson said: “We are delighted to have secured this much sought after supply chain framework and we are very much looking forward to working with Sisk to demonstrate how we can add value on future projects.”
Steve Poole, Regional Procurement Manager for John Sisk & Son, commented: “Teamwork lies at the heart of our culture. We work together with our customers, professional teams and our supply chain to develop innovative and value-adding solutions for our clients. Relationships have been the key to our past success and will be more important than ever in the future.”
