Sutton Coldfield’s Andrew Mitchell MP has visted the newly opened branch of builders merchant Travis Perkins in Minworth.
The brand new 2.25 acre site includes a tools and plant hire section, up to 50 different types of bricks and an extensive landscaping display. Boasting extensive bricks, timber and blocks, it offers a fast and convenient one hour click and collect service and next day delivery.
Branch manager Mark Burns said: “We’re really excited to be opening the doors today. At 2.25 acres the site is huge and will serve as a one-stop shop for everyone’s building and construction needs. We’re situated in a really ideal location that serves Minworth, Sutton Coldfield and Erdington.
“With demand for construction and building at an all-time high, the opening of our new branch couldn’t come at a better time.”
Mitchell said: “I was delighted to visit the new Travis Perkins Branch in Minworth and see the investment being made in the local area. It was interesting to meet the manager and staff and to understand the business and the opportunities it is providing through apprenticeships and its efforts to attract a wider, diverse range of people into the building industry.”
Mayor councillor Terry Wood, who officially opened the new branch, said: “It is great to see Travis Perkins bringing new jobs and investment here, which we greatly appreciate and welcome, I wish them all the success in the future.”
Customers can choose to shop online, in branch or by using the new Travis Perkins app. The industry-first app has been designed in conjunction with customers to help them save time and work smarter by enabling them to check and order stock on the go at their personal trade prices in real time from their local branch.
The new Travis Perkins branch is located at Forge Lane, Minworth, B76 1AP.
