Mike Wilkes & Son Ltd has been established over 25 years, beginning with one man and van completing roofing work. The company developed and diversified over the years.

“The company has used Sell2Wales for over 6 years. We registered with the site after an information event carried out by the Supplier Development Service. We have not looked back since. Since using Sell2Wales we have been successful in winning five major long term contracts in the last two years and are currently at the final stage in a further two long term contracts for various repairs and maintenance work. Sell2Wales has also provided us with valuable contact details for procurement and department contacts at a range of local authorities and housing associations. We have also attended various events on procurement and tendering in association with the supplier development service and Sell2Wales. We feel these have had a direct result in helping us win contracts.



“One occasion of winning business is for Tai Calon Housing. This contract was a four year contract completing kitchen and bathroom refurbishments including electrical rewires. The association had split the contract into 9 lots, with two smaller lots suitable for smaller scale contractors. After a successful PQQ, tender and company presentation we were awarded one of the lots in autumn 2010. The impact this has had on the company has been fantastic. Since winning this contract we have increased employees from 26 to 38 and the company has seen growth of 45% turnover consecutively over the last two years. In addition since winning this contract, and it being extremely successful, we have won various other long term contracts.



“The company’s top tip is once you are registered with Sell2Wales, use it. It is important to keep all your information up to date on site and login regularly to update company information. The website is a wealth of knowledge with the contact details of all procurement departments and contracts and we would suggest that companies look at all sections of the website and not just wait for emails to come to them.”
