Wurths Refreshment Problem


Wurth trade counters currently have 24 stores across the UK with a rapid growth programme, aiming to be at 25 open stores by April 2023. Looking to provide hot and cold refreshments free of charge to their clientele was a priority, however this had to be hassle free and reliable, alongside this it was important that the store manager was able to access a quick and easy ordering process for consumable products.


Wurth had the following requirements which were requested at outset:

  • Dedicated account manager

  • Simple order form for branches with simple email instructions.

  • Consolidated invoices, on requested payment terms and detailed as required.

  • The adaptability of a supplier that is big enough to cope but small enough to care.

  • On-going relationship to build on and can only get stronger over time.

  • Nationwide coverage ability.


Our Solution


Wurth's process starts with a new store opening where a PO is provided via the PM (project manager for new builds) for equipment required. Thereafter subsequent orders for products are placed by each site. Consolidated invoicing was requested to streamline the accounting process, thus avoiding unnecessary traffic to this department. Alongside this a requirement of a dedicated account manager to cover all matters avoiding excess email traffic, all of which we have provided where the previous supplier was unable to do so.


Implementation Approach


Having completed a national roll out, updating water machines from Scotland to London (within a specific time frame), we are now in the process of updating the coffee park, whilst improving efficiencies and equipment across the group.





What they think


Brandon Smith

Wurth UK Trade Store Supervisor

"I would say the service is top class, I

have only put one order through so far

but items in stock came next day, we

got a call to say some items were on

back order which was nice for the

heads up as our old supplier never

gave any correspondence at all."



Nina Tremain-Short

HSEQ Coordinator at Wurth UK

"We have been moving our hot and cold facilities

over to Roundstone vending over the past year

and the experience has been nothing but straight

forward. We have had a few teething issues

which has been expected but this has been

handled hands on which has eliminated any

stress from our side, with great communication

all the way through. I would happily recommend."
