Introducing the Service Supply Network
Back in 2017, The Concrete Network was launched with a clear aim; to connect domestic and commercial customers across the UK, with a need for concrete, to reliable local concrete suppliers, all within one easy phone call. The concept quickly became popular throughout the UK concrete supply market, eventually building to include over 200 network partners.
Over the next year, the network naturally expanded to include concrete pump suppliers, giving customers the flexibility they needed when dealing with difficult access areas as part of their construction project. This soon became a business in its own right, marking the launch of the Concrete Pumping Network.
These two branches of the business were successful and well received by customers and partners alike, however, our team became increasingly aware that these two services only catered for one side of any construction project. In order to provide an excellent service for their customers, they needed to expand into another aspect of the construction industry – waste management.
The first step in this journey was into grab hire, therefore a wealth of market research was conducted to ensure that they delivered a top quality service to their customers. Following this, the team began to build a brand new group of partners, reaching out to local suppliers across the country and forming what would go on to become the Grab Hire Network.
While grab & tipper hire proved popular waste management solutions for construction, it became clear that customers were quite often in the market for skip hire. Recognising this trend then led to the most recent business expansion for the team, and preparations began for the Skip Supply Network.
By September this year, we found ourselves with four fantastic services, all working towards the same goal; to connect our customers across the UK with their ideal concrete & waste management supplier, without the need for calling around.
Our journey and expansion into these different areas meant we needed to think about our brand and how it presented us. We wanted something that would be instantly recognisable and would bring together every aspect of our business under one clear message.
While we needed a brand name that would still give us room to grow and innovate, we also wanted to be able to embody everything we do right now. Most importantly, we wanted to remember where it all started and create something that was and evolution of our existing brands, rather than a complete restart.
After some consideration, we’re delighted to have found something that we think does all of these things…introducing the Service Supply Network, the UK’s largest network of independent concrete & waste management suppliers.
