Leeds City Council - Merchants Framework


Leeds City Council have been working in partnership with our Merchants framework supplier Wolseley Integrated Services. 

Using a managed stores and van stock replenishment solution they have been moving to a fully delivered service reducing the need for operatives to visit stores.

Whilst currently buying over 3,500 lines they have been able to reduce their materials spend by intense focus on the Top 60 spend items which represents half their monthly spend.

Contract savings achieved via the framework:

  • 8.6% reduction in overhead costs

  • 16% reduction in materials costs

“Being one of the largest stock retained Councils in the country  brings its own challenges. Working with the framework is really helping us to transition from an inefficient collection-based stores service to a more efficient delivered model, increasing operative outputs.  With 4,500 orders per month and 200+ operatives, the framework and Wolseley have become true valued partners in aiding our cultural shift and use of data along our efficiency journey”  Gemma Adams, Commercial Manager, Leeds City Council
