M&J Builders Merchants’ parent company, Rodger Group Limited, has acquired Larkhall based South Lanarkshire Building Supplies Limited, adding a 4th location to the Group.
SLB which was part of the NBG Buying Group has ceased its membership and has joined M&J’s buying group, The h&b Buying Group. SLB is conveniently located just off the M74 motorway at junction 8 in Lanarkshire. It is a mixed heavyside and lightside merchant, holding a substantial range of products within its 4 acre site.
“SLB is already a very successful business, with a great reputation for service. Being part of the enlarged Group will bring opportunities for growth and new avenues for development. It is an exciting prospect both for M&J and for all at SLB” says SLB Director, Stephen Queen.
M&J is located in Greenock (2 locations) and Largs is a leading supplier of high quality timber, building, insulation and landscaping materials. Being part of The h&b Buying Group allows us to have access to better buying across all our products and our buying group’s collective turnover is fast approaching £1 billion from its 90+ members, enabling us to negotiate the best deals with the manufacturers. Being a family run independent business, however, we can still offer that personal service that can get lost with the national merchants.
SLB compliments our already well-established brand in Scotland and this new acquisition fits exceptionally well with our vision to be the best provider of building products in the eyes of our customers, employees, suppliers and communities.
The existing SLB branch management team as well as all staff are staying in place in their current roles and we are excited about combining operational expertise and knowledge and aim to share best practice from all our business units to create an improved and growing Scottish organisation.
As a valued partner I wanted to ensure that you are the first to hear about this positive development and look forward to discussing the opportunities this brings
