Procure Plus

Procure Plus was established over 20 years ago recognising that social housing providers needed a way of being sure they were getting the best value for money, whilst also getting good quality goods and services whilst not taking unnecessary risks.

So we set up a social enterprise with 10 landlords from across Greater Manchester to give them a low-risk means of accessing good quality supplies for their housing, repairs and maintenance work. This pioneering start-up led to Procure Plus, now a market leader in the housing R&M procurement field, buying over £200m of goods and services annually - housing is in our DNA.
