Travis Perkins plc, a FTSE 100 company with a £5bn turnover is the UK’s leading company in the builders’ merchanting and home improvement. Born out of the merger in 1988 between Travis & Arnold and Sandell Perkins, the group can trace its roots back over 200 years and continues to grow today by following a successful strategy of acquisition and organic growth.
We love that we’re a group of some of the building industry’s most popular brands but the truth is we see ourselves more like a family.
Being a family is core to our being. Everyone works together, everyone looks out for each other and everyone is expected to step up and play their part in making us the best in every area. The whole team owns the whole business, together.
And everything we do is underpinned by our five cornerstones:
Upholding family values
This is what makes us different. We work hard together to deliver results and have some fun along the way. It’s about doing the right thing. We’re straightforward and value honesty, trust and kindness. It’s ‘new-fashioned’ family values built on our heritage.
Keeping people safe
Safety, for us, is everything. We expect everyone to go home to their families exactly as they arrived at work.
Working for our customers
The success of our business relies on strong relationships. This is about a ‘can do, will do’ attitude and understanding the lifelong value of each customer relationship.
Making decent returns
Making a decent return is less about making money and more about creating value for shareholders, employees, customers and suppliers. And it depends on building business relationships based on trust and respect; strong enough to keep going through bad and good times.
Being the best
Our aim is to set the bar high and make our customers feel special. Our business is built on maintaining good relationships with our customers and suppliers. It’s essential we attract and retain the best people to enable us to operate the best business in every catchment area.
