Selco arrives in Exeter

Exeter has become the home of the latest Selco Builders Warehouse branch to open.

The ever-expanding builders’ merchant has officially cut the ribbon on its branch on Filmer Way in Marsh Barton. This takes the number of Selco depots to 73 and strengthens the brand’s presence in the south-west of England, where there are already two branches in Bristol.

CEO Howard Luft said: “We are committed to a major branch expansion strategy, and Exeter is the next step on that programme. The number of tradespeople using our unique offering is growing all the time and this is another area where we can offer that one-stop shop for the trade.

“As a genuine multi-channel builders’ merchant, we want to give tradespeople the chance to get their building materials in the most convenient way possible to them, whether that is through branches or through our growing digital offering.”

The official launch of the Exeter branch saw Selco continue its commitment to supporting the local communities in which it operates by donating £3,000 to good causes.

The business awarded £1,000 to Jay’s Aim, which funds defibrillators for community groups across the south west and CPR training, through its Community Heroes scheme. The charity was founded in 2018 by the family of James Osborne who died at the age of 28 following a fatal cardiac arrest while on a run, with what was with what was subsequently revealed to be an undiagnosed hereditary heart condition.

In addition, Selco committed a further £2,000 to its nominated charity Cancer Research UK.

The official opening of the new Exeter branch also saw a special darts event where customers and colleagues were given the chance to play nine darts challenges against two big names from the sport – rising star and world number 16 Ryan Searle and former BDO World Champion and current Sky Sports pundit Mark Webster.
