Socius Network Signs Two-Year Deal with Peter Grant Papers

14 April 2011

Socius Network, a consortium of 15 distributors, has signed a two-year contract with Peter Grant Papers for the provision of away from home paper products.

Based all over the country, including Ireland, Jersey and Guernsey, the Socius members selected Peter Grant Papers after a competitive tender against four other suppliers because of its ability to reliably meet the consortium’s needs.
Mike Revell, Managing Director of Socius explained: “Peter Grant Papers’ approach was open and direct, which meant that when our members came to vote for their preferred supplier they knew exactly what was on the table from this company.
“Peter Grant Papers also took the time to get their offer right. They listened to us and then adapted their proposals to give us the specification we required at the price we needed. This flexibility was impressive; they seem to relish the complexity of our needs and the challenge this presents.
“The company’s product range is comprehensive and their membership of the CHSA underwrites the quality we need. Add to this that a number of our members have worked successfully with the company for a number of years and Peter Grant Papers’ appointment as preferred supplier became a natural progression.”
Peter Grant Papers will be supplying all Socius Network’s own label products – toilet rolls, centrefeed rolls, mini jumbos, bulk pack toilet paper, centrefold hand towels, 1-ply green towels and 2-ply white towels – all of which must be of a dependably high quality. The company will also provide the Network members with all Peter Grant Papers generic products, a range than encompasses more than 35 items.
Paul Weddle, sales and marketing director at Peter Grant Papers, explained: “We are delighted to have secured the long term relationship with the Socius Network. We know are service has to be exemplary if we are to add to the reputation of members rather than detract from it. This is why customer service and a detailed understanding of the member companies’ customers needs is intrinsic to all we do.”
Socius Network member companies primarily serve the janitorial and industrial sectors.
