Regency Purchasing Group logoRegency Purchasing Group is driving the golf sector into the future after winning an £8 million contract with one of the country’s premier golf service providers.

The Weston-super-Mare firm is now supplying over 400 UK golf clubs after being awarded a contract by golf purchasing company, Material Matters Limited (MML).

Together the businesses are supplying an unrivalled range of goods and services to golf clubs nationwide, with Regency offering a complete food and beverage solution.

Both companies already work alongside Foremost Golf, the UK’s largest golf pro-shop buying group and this partnership will allow the three businesses to offer golf clubs the total solution.

RPG Managing Director, Alex Demetriou, said: “Following our recruitment drive this year we have created the largest field based procurement network in the UK, which has made this deal possible.

“Between the three businesses we now offer golf clubs the total solution from food, to golfing equipment, to fuel and anything else a golf club may need. We do not believe that anyone else offers this.”

Paul Mould, Managing Director of Material Matters said: “I am confident that working together we can deliver an unparalleled range of products and services to golf clubs nationwide.

“We pride ourselves on the amount of work that we do face-to-face with our clubs. That kind of relationship is vital to create the maximum level of savings for the clubs that we help.

“RPG gives us an instant presence right across the UK, which we really need to grow further and keep driving even better prices for our existing and new members.

“I want MML to deliver exactly the same high level of service and pricing whether we are in Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, Cardiff, Croydon or Bournemouth – working with RPG we can do exactly that.”
