Thorncliffe Building Supplies has been named in the London Stock Exchange’s list of 1,000 Companies To Inspire Britain. With retail sites in Dyserth, Mold and Abergele, Thorncliffe has been recognised as one of the fastest growing small to medium sized businesses in the UK.
Thorncliffe Building Supplies is one of the largest independent builders’ merchants operating in North Wales and the Northwest of England. Established in 1987, the company has grown considerably to become a brand renowned for quality products and customer care.
1,000 Companies To Inspire Britain is an annual celebration of SMEs, which analyses emerging opportunities and challenges that will shape the future of the UK economy. In this year’s report, the rigorous selection criteria required companies to have demonstrated not only growing revenue over the past four years but also to have outperformed their sector peers.
Recent growth at Thorncliffe Building Supplies is attributed to the company’s expansion into concrete manufacturing, the instalment of state of the art machinery at Bodelwyddan and significant investment in efficient waste processing systems at the company’s two waste transfer stations. The company has also invested in staff development and training, most notably with the establishment of an apprenticeship programme run in conjunction with the Cambrian Training Company. This programme has been very successful and, since it was launched, has seen the recruitment of thirty apprentices.
Commenting on the company’s inclusion within this prestigious list, Managing Director Tim Harper, said: “Thorncliffe Building Supplies has grown significantly over the last five years and we believe our success is directly related to the outstanding levels of customer service that we consistently offer. Everyone within the company is friendly and ready to serve. This approach, combined with our ability to source high quality products and provide a reliable delivery service, has enabled us to expand throughout the region. We are delighted to have been officially recognised as a growing and dynamic company by such a prestigious body like the London Stock Exchange.”

It stocks an extensive choice of building, timber and landscaping supplies, including general products and specialist items, from leading manufacturers.
