Leading cast stone manufacturer Pennine Stone has reason to celebrate after being named Supplier of the Year by major house builder Persimmon Homes. This is the first time Persimmon has recognised a supplier in this way.
Pennine Stone has also secured the exclusive contract to supply Persimmon with all their semi dry cast stone components until December 2008. This contract involves the supply of Pennine’s TecCast product, which is the only cast stone process to achieve the prestigious BBA accreditation. Pennine Stone’s extensive collection of TecCast components ranges from window heads and cills to copings, strings and porticos.
This award by one of the UK’s largest house builders underlines Pennine’s commitment to service. Success, like everything in this business, relies on building good relationships, and technical account manager Denise Jones has worked hard to achieve this. The award was presented by Persimmon group development director David Bryant.
TecCast is a Semi - Dry product which uses a combination of traditional materials and technologically innovative admixtures to produce stone which is without equal.
TecLite uses a fibre-reinforced mix to produce light weight products which look and behave exactly like traditional cast stone.
WetCast is a traditional wet mix material which is used to produce dense heavy duty, extremely robust products, ranging in size from small decorative items such as cills, heads and copings right up to large cornices, beams, columns and porticos.
