Selco Builders Warehouse celebrated the 10th birthday of its first London branch with a special open day yesterday (March 19).
Selco in Walthamstow opened on March 19, 2002; the company, part of Grafton Group, now has 14 branches across London with three more due to open.
Branch manager Kevin Barnes said: “Selco has grown so much since we first opened here, and we’ve built up a really loyal following in the local community.”
Managing director Chris Cunliffe said: “Nobody had really heard of Selco in London before we opened the Walthamstow branch, and despite our most optimistic expectations we were stunned by the amount of customers that came through our doors that first morning.
“Now we’re on the brink of opening up a further three branches in London this year, including in Hanworth, Old Kent Road and Tottenham, which will bring us up to 17 Selco branches across the capital.
“We are committed to continuing our expansion and providing the complete service offer to all builders and tradesmen in the South East, and we’re looking forward to serving the London builders for many years to come.”
