Builders merchant Jewson has secured a deal to supply Pinewood and Shepperton Studios with a range of building materials to service the Studios’ on-site requirements.
In addition, Jewson has been granted a five-year lease over premises situated at Pinewood Studios and Shepperton Studios, and is acquiring goods and employees previously owned and employed by Pinewood.
The builders merchant was selected due to the flexibility of its services, and will be offering on-site Jewson branches as well as a dedicated team.
Pinewood and Shepperton studios are one of the world’s leading destinations for the makers of film, television, commercials and video games. The building materials provided will be used in a variety of ways to support set building for the screen industries.
Paul Edwards, director of sales for Jewson, said: “We are delighted to be working with such a prestigious customer. Our on-site branches will deliver a wide range of materials to meet the studios’ challenging requirements.
“Our presence on-site will reduce administration for the studios and improve efficiency in line with sustainability targets. We look forward to a successful relationship with Pinewood and Shepperton Studios.”
