On Christmas Eve 2015, Huthwaite Roofing Supplies (HRS) became part of Walter Tipper Ltd.
HRS had been trading for over 25 years, stocking a range of essential building materials alongside a core profile of specialist roofing supplies. After closing its doors for a short time before Christmas, the branch reopened on January 4th. All staff have been retained and normal opening hours have resumed.
Bill Tipper said: “The acquisition of HRS is a fantastic opportunity for Tippers as it means that we are now able to broaden our sales and delivery area to our current, and potential new customers, in the area. We were very happy to be able to complete the acquisition before Christmas Day, as this meant that current HRS staff could celebrate the festive period without being uncertain of the future. Now we’re into the New Year, we are very much looking forward to developing the branch over the next 12 months. Current plans include a broadening of its stock range, plus a program of yard and shop improvements.”
Tippers celebrating its 100th year in 2016, and now operates from eight branches across the midlands.
