Kellaway Building Supplies has bought Worcester based Premier Timber and Builders Merchant, giving the Bristol-headquartered NBG member its 12th merchant branch.
Following the acquisition, Premier will relocate from the current site to more suitable premises on the same Worcester trading estate, creating greater space to offer an increased range of stock and vastly improved facilities for both customers and staff. The new site will be up and running in early 2017.
Managing director, Julian Milligan said: “I am delighted to be welcoming all of the Premier team into the Kellaway Group. We see Worcester as a vibrant, growing city and a great opportunity to extend our reach into a new geographic market. This purchase further develops our branch network enabling us to better meet our customers’ needs, wherever in the region their work takes them. This year has been a busy and successful one for us and emphasises the company’s commitment to growth across new markets and to remain an independent merchant.”
Premier’s manager, Collette Curtis, will continue in her role and said: “We are all very excited about joining the Kellaway Group and see an extremely bright future for the branch. The staff and I are delighted to be part of a larger organisation that gives us security, investment and career development as well as generating more benefits for our customers.”
