Jewson launches new Branch of the Future at Woking

Leading national builders’ merchant Jewson has opened the doors to its newly refurbished branch in Woking, introducing its ‘Branch of the Future’ concept to the region.

Proud to partner the trades, the new Jewson Woking branch presents the next milestone on the merchant’s transformation journey to bring the UK’s hard-working professional tradespeople what they need to grow their own businesses and to become the leading builders’ merchant in the UK.

As part of parent company STARK Building Materials UK’s ‘Trust in Better’ strategy, Jewson is implementing a comprehensive investment programme to optimise its branch network across the nation, including major refurbishments, like Woking, and new purpose-built distribution facilities.

The Woking branch is one of the first to be transformed in line with the plans, and in the new Jewson brand identity – which was unveiled in April – and symbolises the improvements the company has been making to its value proposition for customers, including range, availability, price and distribution enhancements.

In the Woking branch, Jewson has made it easier and quicker for small and medium builders, carpenters, roofers, landscapers and more to find the range and availability they need for a whole job, with the product assortment positioned close together for efficiency.

SKUs have been increased from 3,000 to nearer 4,500, and opening hours have been extended, with the branch open from 6:30am to 5:30pm.

Extra delivery vehicles have been added to the fleet to meet customers’ delivery requirements, and the branch has covered drive-through loading bays and service areas so customers and materials aren’t exposed to the British weather. There is high quality food and drink available, along with technology charging bays and modern meeting areas for project discussions.

Domi Scrivener, branch manager at Jewson Woking, said: “Our branch, which serves so many members of the Woking community, has been designed to offer customers everything they need to work efficiently, meet their own customers’ needs and grow their own businesses.

“A huge amount of work has gone into getting us where we are today, and our doors are now firmly open for business. We look forward to being an integral part of the day-to-day lives of professional tradespeople and builders from Woking and the surrounding areas.”

Jewson is proud to partner the trades, building on its 180+ years of industry experience, offering the UK’s professional tradespeople the products and services they need to work smarter and grow their business faster, powered by a robust sourcing network and distribution platform.

Jewson plays a significant part of STARK UK, a portfolio of building merchant businesses, which are part of STARK Group, Europe’s leading builders’ merchant and distribution platform. Earlier this year, STARK Group celebrated its first 12 months of operating in the UK.
