Acquisitive independent builders merchant Huws Gray has bought Mid Wales based AC Roof Trusses Ltd.
Established in 1982, AC Trusses specialises in the design, production and supply of structural timber components. The company employs 30 people at its 1.4-acre site in Welshpool, which includes two factories, offering 17,000sq ft production facilities.
Osian Jones, Truss and Easi Joist development manager for the Huws Gray Group says: “We are very pleased to be able to announce the acquisition of AC Roof Trusses. The company is very well known and respected for its expertise and service. It’s going to be a very exciting period for everyone involved. We are very much looking forward to building on the success of both of the roof truss manufacturing locations and utilising the expanded Huws Gray Group branch network to distribute products to our customer base across the country.”
Tom Jones, managing director for AC Roof Trusses adds: “On behalf of the Directors and all employees we are very proud to be joining the Huws Gray Group. Recent years has shown exceptional growth where we have worked closely with Huws Gray and grown to be a reliable and trusted supplier of engineered timber structures which include timber frame wall panels, Posi-Joists, Roof Trusses and Spandrel Panels. With the current management structure being retained we are hugely excited for the future to working with the rest of the Huws Gray Group, opening doors to new opportunities and building on the success the company has had in recent years.”
The timing of the acquisition comes just as Huws Gray Group nears the completion of the refurbishment of most of the Ridgeons branches (now trading as Huws Gray Ridgeons) across East Anglia.
