Frome builders merchant Tipadel Ltd is selling up to fellow independent Sydenhams, which will take over the running of Tipadel Ltd from early April.
Managing director, Tim Painter, told emplloyees and customers that after 40 years of running the business, now is the time for him to ‘enjoy the fruits of his labours’.
“Throughout this time, I have so much enjoyed building my business, my association with so many customers from all walks of life, from the many with agricultural connections to all of our local builders, and not forgetting our big contingent of loyal DIY and retail customers.
“It is therefore of great pleasure that I can announce that I have found an ideal buyer and successor for Tipadel and have agreed the sale of the business to Sydenhams Ltd.
“Sydenhams are historically a family business with a strong multi branch influence in the South and West, not only as a builders merchant and timber merchant, but with many recent acquisitions connected with the construction industry.
“With this very worthy successor at the helm, who will take over the running of the business from early April, I can reassure you that the same exemplary service and commitment to our customers will be maintained, especially with the very same familiar staff from Tipadel who have the training, knowledge and commitment that has been our pledge over the years.”
