Welsh independent builders merchant LBS has invested over £20 000 in its Port Talbot branch as part of its celebration of 80 years’ trading in Wales.
The Cramic Way site, which opened in 2001, now has a new, easier to reach customer entrance coming off the A4241/Port Talbot Distributor Road. The investment saw the company create a small access road from the PDR to the branch, changing the traffic flow within the yard to improve safety, plus installing a range of new signage communicating the change of access to customers and delivery vehicles.
“One of the main reasons the £110m PDR is being developed is to attract inward investment and assist in industrial and commercial developments of the south western area of Port Talbot such as this,” said managing director Mark Davies.
Last year, LBS, a partner in the independent buying group NBG LLP, opened a branch in Neath and a specialist roofing branch in Landore, Swansea, under the name of Casey’s Roofing At LBS.
The merchant will be holding a celebration event at LBS Port Talbot in July, to mark the branch’s 10th year of trading and the completion of improvements.
“We are thrilled to have been successfully trading in Port Talbot for 10 years and would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their valued support,” Davies said.
“Developing this site is key to us in terms of continually improving our offering to customers living and working in Port Talbot.”
