Kevin Gardner is to retire from Shropshire builders merchant Tudor Griffiths Group after over 35 years’ service.
During his time with the company, he has played a key role in establishing the Group as a major player in the builders’ merchants sector.
Managing director Tudor Griffiths said Gardner would be a real loss to the team, and praised him for his dedication and commitment over nearly four decades of service.
“When Kevin joined, we had just two builders’ merchants’ branches in Ellesmere and Tattenhall. Since then, under Kevin’s guidance, we have added branches in Northwich, Oswestry, Nantwich, Welshpool, Kidderminster, and our latest in Bridgnorth which opened just last year,” he said.
“Kevin has successfully managed the business over this period of sustained growth to take us to our current position as a significant regional player in the builders’ merchants’ sector with a flourishing network of eight branches. I am very grateful for all the hard work and dedication that Kevin has put in to achieve this. He will be a tough act to follow and will be missed throughout the Group.”
