At Leightons, we think the best relationships are built on strong trust and shared values.
We see our suppliers as key stakeholders in our business – and working together, we know we can make good things happen – helping our customers to access better products and services, that allow them to live their life to the full.
We work with a variety of suppliers, big and small. From global leaders to boutique brands; independent crafts people to solo businesses.
What unites us is:
Of course, we look for partners who can give us a competitive advantage and provide our customers with the products, services and experiences that help them live life to the full. But we’re also mindful that the diversity of the products and regulatory systems associated with these purchases can potentially expose the Group to legal, financial, operational and commercial risks. So we’re careful to choose only the highest quality suppliers, with great people, and a commitment to care.
At Leightons we take a collaborative approach to supply. Yes, we look for efficiency, reliability of externally purchased goods and services whilst trying to reduce costs. But more than this, we look for people like us, who are driven to make constant improvements, to their products, their service and their ways of doing business.
That way, we’re always getting the best out of each other, and both our businesses continue to grow.
Happily, it’s an approach that’s won plenty of fans.
