JTD Building Supplies quadruples in size with K8 - the ERP solution that keeps on growing

Established in 2011, JTD Building Supplies has used the intuitive functionality within K8 from Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) to make great strides in its development. Implemented in 2017, K8 is an ERP business management system that uses a comprehensive range of modules to help merchant businesses source effectively, stock efficiently, sell profitably, and service competitively.

Based in West Yorkshire, JTD Building Supplies is an independent builders’ merchant providing building materials and supplies to construction firms, trade customers and retail customers across the region. The company grew from values of sustainability and customer service and was explicitly looking for the right ERP software when its Managing Director, Tony Sharkey, was invited to attend a business management strategy course run by Goldman Sachs. One of his goals set through this course was to find a good software package. Tony knew that a number of leading builders’ merchants were using K8 software, so after a lot of research and comparisons, Tony decided to implement K8 in March 2018 at JTD.

The transformation since then has been remarkable.

Starting from a small base with eight people and a turnover of two million, JTD now has two full purpose sites and a full-time staff of thirty-seven people. Moreover, they’ve just recorded a global turnover of ten and a half million pounds.
