Miller Pattison, the highly regarded national insulation installer with branches located across the UK and 150-strong workforce, has teamed up with leading insulation supplier Jablite.
From 1 June 2018, Jablite will be sole supplier of Supabead, Miller Pattison’s own-brand cavity wall insulation.
“The match works because the businesses share a similar approach to technical expertise and customer service and Jablite is able to support Miller Pattison’s ambition to be the largest new build insulation installer in the UK,’ explains Alex McLeod, CEO of Miller Pattison.
“We’re already in the top four and are the only truly national insulation company with depots across the UK. Due to our progressive approach and technology integration in everything we do, we can reach a customer’s site within a couple of days of the initial contact and complete an installation in less than half a day.”
The Role of Expanding Solutions in the Deal
A key factor in the development of this strategic partnership was Jablite’s commitment to technical expertise, evidenced by the creation of its own independent building consultancy Expanding Solutions as a new sister-brand in the Jablite Group.
Steve Broadhurst of Expanding Solutions explains, “Miller Pattison urgently needed a British Board of Agrément (BBA) certificate for Supabead and Expanding Solutions was in a unique position to provide the project management and technical expertise to deliver this in record time.
“Our team of experienced engineers and product development managers at Expanding Solutions offers a BBA accreditation support service that is second-to-none. Our understanding of the rigorous testing and assessment procedures required by the BBA enabled us to deliver this certificate very cost-effectively for Miller Pattison.”
The joining up of these two leading brands in the insulation sector is expected to deliver growth and innovation to both and, as Richard Lee, Managing Director of Jablite explains, it is a strategic partnership that offers many new opportunities:
“Jablite and Miller Pattison share many core values, in particular our commitment to customer service and technical expertise – we have already identified new synergies in the residential build sector.
“Jablite is looking at new opportunities across a number of areas in the construction industry. Setting up Expanding Solutions, our own independent construction consultancy, was an important part of our planning and this partnership with Miller Pattison has already demonstrated its unique value,” concludes Richard.
