Travis Perkins ‘ BSS takeover expected next week

Builders merchant Travis Perkins has indicated that its takeover of rival merchant chain BSS could go-ahead within days.
Travis Perkins aims to pay £533m for the BSS Group, which includes plumbers merchant PTS and distributor F&P and industrial and commercial merchants BSS.

Last month the Office of Fair Trading said it needed more time to consider the issue.

Should the merger go-ahead, it would create the UK’s largest builders and plumbers merchant chain, ahead of Wolseley and Jewson.
