Birkenhead Building and Roofing Supplies grows again

Published:  10 August, 2012

MERSEYSIDE: Birkenhead Building and Roofing Supplies (BPRS)  has opened a new trade counter in Birkenhead this week.

Formally opened by Chris Haywood, managing director of the National Merchant Buying Society, the branch also incorporates an offie block for the company.

Managing director at BPRS, Barrie Pilgrim said: "We are both honoured and grateful that Chris gave up time from his busy shedule to find time to come and open our new block."

Mr Hayward said: “It is always great to see Independents looking to improve their offer to customers and the new trade counter at Birkenhead is an excellent facility which I am sure will be welcomed by their trade customers and should almost definitely lead to more sales. Barrie and his team already offer excellent service and by investing in a new trade counter they are underling their commitment to offer the very best in customer service.”

BPRS was established in 1981 and has since grown and diversified into four companies, including plumbing, heating and timber.
