Tom Grundy to oversee procurement at Anwyl

Tom Grundy has been appointed as housing procurement director at Anwyl Homes Lancashire, based in Chorley.

Tom, who will also continue with his current position as commercial director at the firm, takes on the newly-created role to to help the company source quality materials at the best competitive prices and to mitigate any potential impact of the Covid pandemic or Brexit on the supply chain.

He said: "My key aim in this new role is to lead the development and implementation of group supply agreements that generate best total value for the business. I will also be in charge of continually improving performance in all facets of our supply chain."

His promotion comes in a year when Anwyl’s Lancashire region, which launched its first development in 2018, is set to double output to almost 200 new homes, while the much longer established Cheshire and North West business is forecasting 474 legal completions.

Mathew Anwyl, housing managing director, commented: “As our homes division continues to grow, the need for us as a business to remain competitive whilst ensuring we continue to build quality homes with quality materials becomes increasingly important.

"Whether it be in the fabric of the home or the finishes within them, it is important that we source and purchase the quality materials we need at the best competitive prices, utilising our bulk buying power. Tom’s new role is a specific response to this challenge and will ensure consistency across all areas of the homes business."
