More acquisitions by Huws Gray

Published Date in the category: News.


One of our customers, Huws Gray have recently announced a series of new acquisitions. 


This is an enoumous step for them making them the largest independent builders' merchants in the UK. 



We are very much looking forward to working with them on the integration of the new stores and businesses. We have worked with Huws Gray from way back when they had just 4 sites. And in 2018 we helped them with the integration of Ridgeons after the acquisition of 40 stores.


Huws Gray have gone from strength to strength since they first opened in 1990 as a single store and this latest deal will make them one of the largest top five UK builders’ merchants.


Back in June 2021, they acquired Higgins Building Supplies Ltd, based in Wellingborough, Irthlingborough and Northampton.  


Then, at the beginning of July they announced the acquisition of Buildbase – taking Huws Gray from 113 stores across the UK to approximately 263.


And they haven’t stopped there, the latest merchant to join the group is Sandysike Builders Merchants Ltd based in Carlisle, Cumbria.


As the industry booms it's an amazing time for them. And we look forward to supporting them now and into the future.
