J S Wright welcomes head of procurement


30 March 2023

Birmingham-based mechanical and electrical services specialist J S Wright has appointed Tony Maxwell as its new Head of Procurement.

Based at the firm's London office in Euston, he will lead a procurement team that includes experienced M&E buyers and hirers. He will also join a head office team in Aston that is in the process of digitising the business practices and operations of J S Wright and its sister company Wright Maintenance to enhance operational efficiencies and compliance.  
With more than 30 years of experience in the building materials distribution industry, Tony has been a regional manager for both BSS and Wolseley UK, and for more than 20 years a branch manager for BSS where he was responsible for opening and managing new branches across London and the south-east.

He said: “I am keen to further develop J S Wright’s relationships with its partner suppliers as well as bring on more suppliers to support its ambitious five-year growth target. I also aim to keep J S Wright fully aware of how new products coming to market will be able to support the company’s ESG (Environment, Social and Corporate Governance) commitments.”

Tony will also reinforce J S Wright’s commitment to supporting the mental health of its employees. As an active mental health campaigner, he was part of a team that raised more than £100,000 for the charity Mind by driving an old London black cab from Leicester to Lake Como in Italy and back.
