Supply chain

Our supply chain is an integral part of VolkerWessels UK commitment to offering clients a quality service. We establish mutually rewarding, ongoing relationships with our suppliers and subcontractors, and today work with many organisations where we have a long and successful history of cooperation. VolkerWessels UK operates a policy of prompt payment to agreed terms.

Our comprehensive database, available across the group includes key management and performance data as well as relevant technical and financial documents to enable us to fully engage with our supply chain partners for long term mutual benefit. The VolkerWessels UK companies are VolkerFitzpatrick, VolkerRail, VolkerStevin, VolkerHighways, VolkerLaser and VolkerInfra.

We welcome new partners as we grow organically and develop new markets in the UK. The group actively supports the use of local workforces and Small Medium Enterprises where practically possible. The Supply Chain Trades Required List in the key documents section below details the subcontract trades and supplier categories we currently require in the respective operating businesses. If your trade or category is not listed you may still apply but your application will be subject to additional review.
