Howard Tenens Secures STIHL GB Contract

Howard Tenens was able to offer STIHL GB the best solution for long-term scalable secure storage as well as provide a flexible cost effective transport solution.

STIHL GB has awarded a new contract to Howard Tenens for the warehousing and distribution of its core ride on mower deliveries to its dealership network.

STIHL GB required a solution which was flexible, scalable and reliable. Howard Tenens’ freehold ownership of over 3,000,000 sq ft of warehouse space across the UK, coupled with a national distribution network, made them a strong candidate. Following a thorough due diligence process, including testimonials from Howard Tenens’ other household name customers, they secured the contract based on their scalability and proactive attitude.

Shaun Wilson, Howard Tenens National Sales Manager said “it is a great privilege to work in partnership with such a prestigious brand as STIHL GB. Both our businesses have very similar values, with a commitment to reliability, innovation and partnership. We look forward to developing and expanding the relationship with STIHL GB in the coming years”.

Rob Follett, Demand Planning Manager at STIHL GB stated “Due to continued sales growth STIHL GB needed to find a storage and transport solution for the delivery of our ride-on lawn tractors into our nationwide dealer network. After a detailed review process Howard Tenens were selected as our partner, bringing together the two family owned companies.

Howard Tenens was able to offer STIHL GB the best solution for long-term scalable secure storage as well as provide a flexible cost effective transport solution. Working with the team at Swindon we had a smooth set up and initial delivery process which ensured we hit the ground running ready for 2015.

We look forward to working with Howard Tenens.”
