Our supply chain isn't separate from the company; they're a key part of the John Perkins vision. Here's how we make it happen:
Working with select partners
We work with a small, select core of subcontractors from each trade and bring them into the John Perkins fold, creating a collaborative way of working. In turn, this approach creates excellent-quality workmanship and best value for money for the client.
Wherever possible, we involve our supply chain at project design stage, to make sure they're part of the process from start to finish.
Shared values and success
Our 'making it happen' mission statement isn't just ours; we apply it to our supply chain, too. If our subcontractors are willing to buy into our values, we'll bring them with us on the journey and share our success with them.
Continual knowledge sharing
Our door is always open to our supply chain. We run an annual seminar for our core subcontractors, to keep them up to date with the direction of both our business and the wider industry. We also involve them in our staff training and project meetings, treating our supply chain as part of our company.
Mutual respect, mutual benefit
By embedding our subcontractors at the heart of our business, we ensure they benefit from our growth just as much as we do.
"John Perkins was proactive in its approach, showing great diligence to health and safety considerations at a particularly busy time for the university. Last minute changes to the scheme were dealt with efficiently and without fuss. We look forward to working with them on future projects."
