Rodger Group Limited, the parent company of M&J Builders Merchants, has acquired Larkhall-based South Lanarkshire Building Supplies Limited (SLB) which becomes the Group’s fourth location.
It will be business as usual for SLB, which will continue to trade as a separate businesses under the new ownership of Rodger Group.
SLB, which was part of the NBG Buying Group, has ceased its membership and has joined M&J’s buying group, The h&b Buying Group. It is a mixed heavyside and lightside merchant, holding a substantial range of products within its four acre site.
“SLB is already a very successful business, with a great reputation for service. Being part of the enlarged Group will bring opportunities for growth and new avenues for development. It is an exciting prospect both for M&J and for all at SLB” says Director, Stephen Queen.
Located in Greenock (two locations) and Largs, M&J is a supplier of high quality timber, building, insulation and landscaping materials.
The new acquisition fits with the company vision to be “the best provider of building products in the eyes of our customers, employees, suppliers and communities”.
The existing SLB branch management team, as well as all staff are staying in their current roles and are said to be excited about combining operational expertise and knowledge and aim to share best practice from all our business units to create an improved and growing Scottish organisation.
