Procurement, merchants and value-based buying

Well-managed procurement is central to the transformation of the UK construction industry, with better social, environmental and economic outcomes that benefit us all.


Follow the money

Effective engagement and communications are at the heart of a successful, value-based procurement process. This means listening to the needs of clients and communities, and communicating how decisions about procurement have a direct impact on our safety, quality of life, health and wellbeing, environmental sustainability and social value.

Builders and timber merchants, online product specification services, ETIM, ERP and e-invoicing systems also play a crucial part in achieving a more productive industry and higher-quality built environment. All deserve to be better known, better loved and better understood.

LMC has a good understanding of procurement and merchanting issues in construction. Recent initiatives include:

  • PR, thought leadership and content marketing for NMBS, including for its innovations in digitalisation, cyber security, sustainability and Product Information Management (PIM).
  • Thought leadership articles, videos and website content for LHC Procurement Group and its regional businesses which specialise in public sector procurement.
  • PR for multiple new digital innovations in e-invoicing and transaction processing.
  • Copywriting and promotion of e-book on the impact of procurement on the levelling up agenda.
  • PR and media relations promoting multiple billion-pound frameworks to social housing clients and suppliers of building products and services.
