Covers Timber & Builders Merchants welcomed Jeremy Quin, the Conservative MP for Horsham, to its depot on May 6.
Quin was given a tour of the depot by store manager John Hamilton who explained its operations and products, as well as how the business gets involved with community projects and charitable giving. Quin also met Covers’ Chairman Rupert Green; the Green family has been running the independent business since the 1940s.
Jeremy Quin MP said: “It was great to meet the team at Covers and hear of a local family business still providing a valued service in their 175th Anniversary year. This is a terrific milestone and I wish them all the best for the future. I was delighted to hear of the 175th Anniversary woodland that will be planted later this year – a very fitting way of marking the year.”
John Hamilton added: “We’ve worked hard to become one of the leading businesses in the area. We’ve built a loyal customer base and encourage the local community to use us for their construction and DIY needs. It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Quin as part of our 175th anniversary celebrations and show him around.”
