The furniture supply to London social housing tenants is expected to undergo a revolutionary transformation as the Furniture Resource Centre acquires two major furniture contracts in the city.
Furniture Resource Centre is now the main furniture supplier to Notting Hill Housing Group and supplying furniture to The Hyde Group. The Framework contract with Hyde can be used by other Social Housing providers – making compliant buying easy.
The Hyde Group is part of g15, representing London’s 15 largest housing associations who between them house one in 10 Londoners. All g15 members can order through the contract and buy from Furniture Resource Centre, as well as all the members of g320, representing all the smaller housing associations in London.
Furniture Resource Centre, part of FRC Group, is now opening a new London base, a stone’s throw from Wembley Stadium, and creating local jobs.
Shaun Doran, FRC Group’s CEO, said: “We are really excited about this significant expansion into London and opening our new warehouse and offices in Wembley.
“We are very proud of the quality of our products and the standard of our delivery and installation service so we are looking forward to bringing this to homes and shared housing accommodation across London.”
FRC Group is a collection of social businesses created nearly 30 years ago in Liverpool. They supply contract furniture to furnished tenancies and shared living accommodation, and also have a senior living brand, Buckingham Interiors, providing an interior design service and high quality furniture to sheltered and care accommodation.
As well as being a leading national furniture supplier, FRC Group is also a charity with the mission to End Furniture Poverty. The organisation has always operated with a commercial head and social heart, running commercially successful businesses and putting 100% of the profits back into the company to achieve its social goals of helping low income families access good quality furniture.
g15 and g320 members can be assured that they are getting the very best value for money. Furniture Resource Centre, (including the Buckingham Interiors brand), is the top ranked furniture supplier on the Procurement for Housing’s furniture framework, so have been OJEU assessed as offering the best price, value and service in the market.
Neina Cave, Sales Manager for Furniture Resource Centre and Buckingham Interiors, explained: “We are delighted to win these two major contracts and are looking forward to working with social housing providers across London. This gives us an opportunity for further expansion across the South East so many more social housing providers can take advantage of our high quality products, low prices, and excellent customer service.”
