Kellaway Building Supplies are currently celebrating their 25th birthday, and there’s good cause to celebrate, as the company is now the fastest growing builders merchant in the South West, according to the KPMG Fast Track 2007 report.
With an annual turnover of £19 million plus, the merchant now has 10 businesses around Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. And, since 1996 the company has grown at the rate of approximately one branch per year via acquisition or organic growth and now employs over 145 people.
However, says md Julian Milligan, the company will not lose the relationship it has with its customers regardless of how large the company grows. “Our trade and DIY customers both old and new appreciate the excellent service we deliver,” he says, “which we achieve through the dedication of our knowledgeable and friendly staff, a large number of whom have been with the company for many years.
“Originally such excellent service was born out of being a family run business, however as we grow this is something we do not wish to lose sight of, and our customers like that personal touch. Here’s to the next 25 years.”
