Partnering With Travis Perkins to Provide Value in the Communities Where we Work

Home>News>Responsible Business>Partnering With Travis Perkins to Provide Value in the Communities Where we Work

At Axis we take pride in our 8 Core Values which underpin our daily lives. Choosing suppliers who share these values is as important as following them ourselves.

Travis Perkins, one of our supply chain partners, shares many of our own values. Both organisations are committed to supporting and investing in the development, welfare, and economic growth of our local communities. Partnering with Travis Perkins helps us strengthen the bonds we have with our clients and our communities where we work.

Travis Perkins’ Community Fund serves the same function as our Axis Foundation – to give back to the community, to those who need our support the most. Their Community Fund works with local projects which

  • support employment and economic opportunities,
  • promote community involvement and resident engagement,
  • encourage environmental sustainability and
  • promote social progress and equality

In our collaborations with Travis Perkins, Axis generally supplies the labour and TP supplies the materials needed for the job.
