Civils & Lintels, the UK’s largest steel lintel distributor, is making life easier for housebuilders across the country by opening four regional distribution hubs.
Civils & Lintels has committed more than £5 million to create four regional lintel distribution hubs – including new yards in Nottinghamshire and the South East.
This fresh investment increases capacity and ensures that the business always has £30m* plus of stock available to meet any needs customers may have – further enhancing service levels to the UK residential sector. Lintels will be available at high volumes and on time wherever in the country you are and with the great service that customers have come to expect.
A new facility has been set up at Kirkby-in-Ashfield and a further site in Erith converted solely to a Lintels platform – alongside investment in sites at Bolton and Westbury in Wiltshire – with all sites offering an impressive range of stock.
As a specialist lintels supplier, the Civils & Lintels teams are focussed on delivering not only excellent customer service, but the broadest depth of products from all key manufacturers so can assure customers that the products will be delivered on time and in full.
Civils & Lintels works with its many regional and national housebuilder customers to develop tailored delivery schedules and provide help and advice on the selection of the best lintels for each development. The lintels hubs can also offer plot-banded deliveries if requested. This provides housebuilders with the reliability they need to complete a build programme.
In addition to the technical knowledge that the teams have, Civils & Lintels will supply bespoke fabrication services through sister company Harvey Steel Lintels.
So, if the customers need something unique or extra heavy duty such as bespoke lintels or arches for a specialist project, Civils & Lintels will manufacture it for them without it leading to costly delays in the build as they offer shorter lead times than major competitors.
Phil Sheldon, Head of Residential from Civils & Lintels, said:
“This investment reflects the ambition that Civils & Lintels has as a business in the UK housing sector.
“We are already the largest distributor of steel lintels in the country and this investment will not only mean that we can continue to offer the best products, but we can also be even more efficient and flexible with our service proposition ensuring our customer commitment is exceeded.
“Customers can rest assured that, as standards change to match legislation, Civils & Lintels continues to be at the forefront by ensuring that new products are stocked – for example, for Part L, thermally insulated lintels are available in volume.
“We also have a wider associated vertical product offering such as Lintel soffit cladding, wind posts, cavity trays, masonry support and roof windows. These are all available from Civils & Lintels to help ensure that our customers can get all they need for their project or build stage directly and conveniently from us.”
