Huws Gray has announced the acquisition of Builders Supplies (West Coast) Ltd, based in North West Lancashire.
Founded in 1938, Builders Supplies (West Coast) Ltd operates from four sites along the Fylde coast, including Fleetwood, Preston, Morecambe and the original premises in Cleveleys.
Owners Peter and Bethan Worthington commented: “We would like to thank all our loyal customers and teams for their support over the years, and for making the company the success it is today. We’re confident that Huws Gray will take the business to the next level and we’re pleased to be leaving it in good hands.”
Matthew Owen, Head of Acquisitions for the Huws Gray Group, commented: “Builders Supplies (West Coast) Ltd have always had a commitment to efficient customer service, which fits well with the Huws Gray ethos. We are optimistic about the future, as this represents a fantastic opportunity for us to strengthen our existing presence in North West Lancashire.”
Established in 1990 from a single branch in Anglesey, the Huws Gray Group is now one of the largest independent builders’ merchants in the UK with over 100 branches across Wales, East Anglia, the North of England and the Midlands, as well as two specialist roof truss manufacturing sites and a dedicated timber mill. The company says its sustained growth continues to be driven by a “determined acquisition strategy”.
