Macclesfield firm clinches £1.3m supply contract with North East university

University of Sunderland

Southerns Broadstock has won a competitive tender process to be appointed a single source supplier to the University of Sunderland in a deal worth £1.3m.

The contract will be for the creation of inspiring and innovative teaching and learning spaces for more than 1,300 staff.

The Macclesfield-based firm was awarded the contract by the North-East University Purchasing Consortium following a competitive nine-way tender process – the first to be awarded since the renewal of the NEUPC agreement.

Southerns Broadstock said the job was won due to their product sustainability, design ability, working processes and high standards, all of which were clearly illustrated by the tender document.

With the ability to provide end-to-end services, the company will offer design and delivery, installation and aftersales over two years, with an option to extend by a further two years.

Jon Stoney, sales director said: “We have built an excellent working relationship with the university having delivered many capital schemes to them over the last eight years.

“Our robust processes, teamed with our ability to provide end-to-end services means we can deliver projects to high standards within reliable timeframes.

“We look forward to working with the university on another successful project.”
