New specialist roofing supplier from LBS

Published:  08 September, 2010

SWANSEA: LBS Builders Merchants has this week opened its first specialist roofing branch in Swansea.

Now with 13 branches and celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2011, it is a natural progression for LBS to increase its ability to supply this specialist part of the building industry.

Trading from a site that has housed a roofing merchant in Landore (opposite the Liberty Stadium) for the past 30 years, the business will trade under the new name of Casey's Roofing At LBS.

LBS managing director Mark Davies said: “We are delighted that LBS can continue to grow at a steady and sustainable rate with our 13th branch being at the heart of the roofing and building industry in South West Wales.

“What that means to new and existing customers is a complete range of roofing products at competitive prices, plus excellent customer service including same day/next day delivery. Furthermore, LBS’ knowledgeable staff will provide expert advice and support through every stage of the supply process.”

He continued: “Having successfully opened a new branch in Neath earlier this year, followed now by this roofing business in Swansea, our growth plans remain on course.  If we were 14 or 15 by the end of next year or the year after, that would be ok, but really we don’t want to push on to being 20 or 30 in the next five or six years. One a year or every two years suits us just fine.”
