New eCommerce website launched

Published:  11 January, 2013

Beatsons Building Supplies has launched a new ecommerce website with over 24,000 products available online.

The website is managed by a dedicated team of three people from the company’s head office in Alloa. The initial offering of 24,000 products will rise to a final offering of around 80,000 products by the end of 2013 including a full roofing and agricultural range of products available across the UK.

Managing Director, John Marshall stated: “We are very excited by the new opportunities that this site will offer us as a company. The general public are already very used to buying online from sites such as Amazon, Ebay and Tesco. A lot of our customers already deal with us via email and text and a move across to online buying is the next logical step. If we fail to offer building materials online then our industry may be overtaken by others willing to do it.”
