Civils supplier Burdens has brought its portfolio of infrastructure brands under one roof in Aberdeen as part of a wider strategy to offer a one-stop shop approach to civils, groundworks, utilities and hire.
The new branch features four Wolseley UK brands: Burdens; Fusion Provida; MCA-Fusion Hire and Repair and plumbing and heating merchant William Wilson.
Six new jobs have been created, including a branch manager and assistant manager, two yard operatives, a driver and a sales representative.
Burdens Aberdeen’s portfolio of customers will include Scottish Water, which is carrying out a £5.3 million initiative to improve drinking water quality for around 20,000 homes in Aberdeen.
Burdens managing director Keith Dorling said: “The new Aberdeen branch is an important move for the Burdens’ infrastructure proposition as we strive to bring our specialist brands closer together and provide customers with a streamlined approach to supplying their projects.”
Branch manager, Stuart Mitchell, said: “We are the first facility of our kind to open our doors to the utility contracting, civil engineering, construction and agriculture sectors. We offer customers a single point of access to the full portfolio of civils, groundworks and utilities materials including water and gas connections such as pipe, valves and meters. This is all complemented by electrofusion and butt fusion machine hire, below ground drainage products, geotextiles and flag and kerb castings.”
