Keyline, the specialist heavyside, materials, rail, utilities, civils and drainage merchant, is to open a new branch in Lincoln.
The expanded offering from the 2.5 acre Lincoln branch includes plastic and concrete drainage, castings, geotextiles, geogrids, ducting and BS grade heavyside products.
The target market is national and regional contractors, national and regional housebuilders, groundworkers, water authorities, and rail contractors.
Lincoln was identified by Keyline as a target area to support its nationwide expansion plan, as it is within an hour of local project sites. With good access to the A46 and A15, the Lincoln branch is well placed to serve major utilities, road, and housebuilding projects which are planned for the area, including AMP6 utilities projects for Severn Trent Water and Anglian Water and a substantial housebuilding development at Teal Park, just outside Lincoln.
Branch manager Grahame Williams, who comes to Keyline from Lincoln firm Civils & Lintels, has 22 years experience in the independent civils merchant sector in Lincolnshire, and brings with him invaluable expert knowledge of the local market.
The new Lincoln branch will complement the existing branches in Scunthorpe and Alford, which will continue to provide a more general product range for its customer base. As well as offering the full range of civils, utilities, rail and heavyside materials, Lincoln features a 450 square metre modular-built warehouse, two 26 tonne crane vehicles, plus a range of specialised lifting equipment.
David Gardner, regional director, North at Keyline said: “With an increased stock of civils, drainage and heavyside materials to support our direct to site business on a host of major projects, our new Lincoln outlet has a major role in supporting our key customers in the region, backed up by expert advice in branch. The opening of this branch represents Keyline’s increasing specialisation in the important sectors we operate in.”
