Arco Celebrates Continued Partnership with Leeds City Council

15 April 2024

Arco is delighted to announce the continuation of its long-standing relationship with Leeds City Council.

The council has once again chosen Arco as its trusted supplier for personal protective equipment (PPE), clothing, gloves, and footwear.

The contract is worth around £650,000 a year, with an additional £200,000 for non-core spend, and is set for a three-year term, with the potential for a 12-month extension.

Steve Summerscales, regional sales manager for Arco's central region, said:

"Leeds City Council is one of the biggest local authorities in the country, and we look forward to helping ensure the safety and well-being of its workforce for many more years.

"This retention demonstrates Arco's commitment to delivering value and the excellent reputation we have with our clients and partners."

Arco's relationship with Leeds City Council stretches back more than 25 years.

In awarding the contract, the council praised the ease and control of placing orders through Arco's website and the convenience of paying via P-Card.
