Grafton Merchanting GB Ltd has acquired independent timber merchant Beaumont Forest Products Ltd.
The merchant, which has three branches located in Ascot, High Wycombe and Hoddesdon, will become part of Grafton Merchanting GB Ltd’s Buildbase Division.
Grafton say they will be investing in the three branches, expanding the stock range and introducing Hirebase and Electricbase to further meet the needs of local tradesmen.
Mark Kelly, CEO at Grafton Merchanting GB Ltd said: “We are delighted to be able to extend our specialist timber products and services to building professionals in the South East.
“As well as welcoming new customers, we can reassure existing customers that that they will retain all of their existing terms as well as the added benefit of being able to trade across the Buildbase network.
“Furthermore existing Beaumont employees will become part of our team, benefiting from being part of a large group. We look forward to working with them and being part of the local community.”
