Commercial market support
Ben Brocklesby, director at Origin, discusses Origin’s commercial department and the opportunities it provides to its partner network.
Origin established its commercial department in July 2019, and was designed to help the business reach new markets, and further strengthen the offering its partners could provide.
This aligned with the company’s growth strategy for market share in the construction sector, with a particular focus on contractors, house builders and architectural practices, creating a sustainable sales channel for the business.
For Origin partners, the benefits are substantial. They are able to draw upon the team’s unrivalled level of expertise and knowledge in the commercial space to bid for larger scale, multi-site multi-plot projects, while receiving full support from Origin during the tender process, through to project completion.
This not only ensures the pitch is always on point, but it adds the Origin stamp of approval to the entire process. On top of this, the partner can have peace of mind that the products being supplied will be of the highest quality, boast industry-leading guarantees, meet and exceed required building regulations, and are both aesthetically pleasing and incredibly secure.
Origin is able to provide products on a supply-only basis (where the partner has done the pitch) or as a turnkey solution (where Origin has done the pitch and will work with the partner in that area to sort the glass, surveying and installation). It will differ on a project-to-project basis, but wherever the project is initiated, Origin is able to accommodate and support the partner either way. It is a win/win situation for everyone involved.
Some notable successes have seen Origin supply a mixture of the Origin Home range to Cala Homes, Mountfield Developments, Backhouse Homes, EAB Homes and Whitecroft Developments, located at sites across the length and breadth of the UK.
With these successes already under the commercial department’s belt, it is looking to expand its remit and encourage more partners to bid for larger scale, multi-site multi-plot projects.
Origin’s well-known gold standard of service will support partners throughout the entire process from start to finish, assisting with requests and supporting in discussions with architects and contractors.
The future certainly looks exciting, with plenty of opportunities in place for Origin and its partners. ‘Winning together’ is the cornerstone of how the commercial department operates, helping Origin and its extensive network grow and thrive.
