Acquisitive Welsh-headquartered independent builders merchant Huws Gray has bought Minera Building Supplies in Wrexham.
Minera is the second acquisition in two months for Huws Gray, folllwing its purchase of R W Almond Builders Merchants in September.
Huws Gray director Dewi Morris welcomed the acquisition, saying: “As a company, we are always looking for opportunities to extend our branch network and firmly believe that Minera Building Supplies is a perfect fit for us in terms of location and growth potential. Bringing Minera on board, alongside our existing locations in Rhostyllen and our brick distribution in Llay, significantly strengthens our presence in the Wrexham and Chester area.
“We want to continue to build on the fantastic work the Rennie family have done here at Minera over the last 35 years. And we’re looking forward to working with the existing team to develop the site.”
Derek Rennie from Minera Building Supplies said: “We’re proud of what we’ve built here in Minera, we’re a family owned business specialising in serving the local people of Minera and beyond with quality building materials.
“We’re so pleased to be leaving the business in such good hands. Huws Gray is such a forward-thinking, progressive and values-driven company, we believe that this is the start of an exciting new chapter for Minera Building Supplies.”
Huws Gray managing director Terry Owen added: “We’d like to thank Derek and Josephine at Minera for their cooperation and for the positive reception we’ve received as a company. We’re extremely delighted with the recent acquisitions in Wrexham and Formby; there are exciting times ahead for all of us involved with the company.”
