Our nationwide presence, local approach to customer management and integrated service offering ensures we form successful industry partnerships. Working with businesses in a diverse range of sectors, from construction to whisky, we have highlighted a few of our most successful collaborative relationships through these customer case studies.
James Jones & Sons
Scott Direct has been instrumental in ensuring we have the correct PPE for our staff. Thanks to the strength of its supply chain, we have successfully specified a standard range of products which are great quality, comfortable and safe – keeping our employees happy.
Rose Building & Waterproofing
Rose Building & Waterproofing recently joined B&Q’s award-winning ‘Green Pallet Scheme’. The scheme offers returnable pallets in bespoke sizes, made only from responsibly sourced timber. It has already made a massive impact by significantly minimising waste to landfill and reducing transport miles in the supply chain.
We have worked with BSW for the last 20 years, and Scott Direct has been supplying BSW with branded workwear, PPE and health and safety equipment since 2012. There is a really collaborative approach when it comes to meeting health and safety requirements.
With customers located everywhere in the British Isles, delivery requirements range from single bags going to single destinations through to multi-site deliveries of several pallets requiring a greater degree of logistical expertise.
Isle of Harris Distillers
Simon Erlanger, Managing Director of Isle of Harris Distillers, said: “Due to its industry-leading reputation, Scott Pallets was a natural choice when we needed to source pallets on which to store our precious casks on the island. It was a bonus to discover the family’s Harris roots and strong emotional ties to the place and we are delighted to be working with them”.
Thanks to the scheme, over 100,000 sustainably sourced pallets have been repatriated, at least 5,000 fewer tonnes of virgin wood has been used, and transport miles have been reduced across the entire supply chain.
