Anglesey-based independent builders merchant Huws Gray has completed the purchase of Stockport-based Brick Market (trading as Woodford Building and Plumbing Supplies).
Huws Gray now employs 570 employees in 47 different trading locations, with the addition of the new Stockport branch significantly strengthening their presence in the north-west.
Director Dewi Moris said: “We’ve been looking to add to our branch network in the Manchester area for some time now, and this acquisition can’t come at a better time for us. This will significantly help to strengthen the Huws Gray’s brand awareness in the North West and also introduce our presence in south Manchester. We’re looking forward to build on the fantastic work that the Jenkins family have done here and further develop the branch alongside the existing team in 2016 and beyond.”
Brick Market are a family firm, established in the year 2000, offering high quality materials serving all areas of South Manchester.
Huws Gray managing director Terry Owen said: “As a company, Huws Gray is always looking to invest in our existing branch network as well as adding new locations, so that we can keep pushing the company forward as well as ensuring we can offer our employees new challenges and opportunities. We anticipate making further announcements in 2016 with a view to further strengthening our presence throughout the north-west, the Midlands and throughout Wales. We’d like to thank all our customers, employees and suppliers for the key roles they have all played in helping Huws Gray get to where we are today.”
