Lightfoot and Bott have secured places on the Procurement for Housing (PfH) Tender Framework covering contract hire, fleet management and associated services.
As preferred suppliers to the framework, Lightfoot and Bott can now be appointed by public sector housing providers without the need for a full tender..
Managing the purchasing of more than £2.5 million of goods and services a week, PfH is a leading professional procurement services provider in the housing sector.
It represents more than 900 members throughout the UK and "helps registered social housing landlords save more than £55 million a year".
Lightfoot’s sales director Martin Kadhim said: “Preferred supplier status significantly enhances our growth plans in the public sector, where we’re already work with a number of housing associations and councils to successfully reduce risk and minimise fleet costs, cutting emissions, reducing fuel bills, accidents, and vehicle wear and tear
Bott’s sales director Stephen Turner said: “The PfT Tender Framework has played a key part in enabling Bott to work for public sector housing organisations.
“We are delighted to have been re-awarded this status and look forward to working with a growing number of PfH members in association with Lightfoot.”
