Netherfield-based educational resources supplier wins major Welsh local authority contract

Netherfield-based educational resources supplier Findel has been awarded the framework for the supply of education aids, curriculum aids and associated products by Wrexham County Borough Council, the lead council, on behalf of 22 local authorities in Wales.

The multi-million pound framework is to supply to primary and secondary schools in Wales. This is a national framework, available on request for any public sector organisations across England, Scotland and Wales to use.

Findel is now the approved supplier of educational resources to more than 1,400 schools across 22 local authorities in Wales after being awarded the framework.

The company was the core supplier on the previous iteration of this framework with Wrexham County Borough Council running from 2019 to 2023. The new agreement to supply educational resources will run until 2027.

Findel’s team which will work with schools also includes native Welsh speakers to support the growing priority of the language being taught on the Curriculum for Wales.

Findel’s Chief Executive, Chris Mahady, said: “Not only retaining, but growing our supplier relationship with all the Wales local authorities and their schools is testament to Findel’s commitment to provide customers with the highest quality of products and customer service.

“As a business, we are truly dedicated to our ESG activities to positively support the communities in which Findel and its customers operate. It’s fantastic to see that this was a differentiator for us when it came to being awarded the framework.

“We look forward to continuing to work with schools across Wales to ensure they have the right products and supplies to support pupils and teachers alike.”
