Bradfords Building Supplies will significantly boost its presence in the Bristol area following its latest branch opening in Avonmouth.
The site just off Juction 18 of the M5 was acquired following the purchase of Ashmead Building Supplies. The branch will offer a large range of stocked products for trade, home improvers and self-builders, including cable, screws, sealants, plumbing fittings, timber, building and landscaping materials.
Mark Eburne, Bradfords CEO commented, ‘The acquisition is great news for Bradfords and our customers, as we are bringing a well-respected, successful business into the group and expanding our presence in the Bristol area.
It is a strong step in our strategy to grow our business across the Southwest.’’
As the builders merchant revs up its expansion plans, there will also be further plans to open new branches in Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset in 2016. This will help to continue the deep roots to the south west community that the company has built over the last 240 years.
