Myers Group launches expansion drive

Published:  11 November, 2014

Building products and services company, the Myers Group, has acquired Bulk Builders Merchants in Leeds for an undisclosed sum.

Huddersfield-based Myers Group is a family owned business that operates companies spanning quarrying and concrete production to builders’ merchants and skip hire.

The business employs 350 people across Yorkshire, has a turnover of £40m, and is managed by fourth generation members of the Myers family, James and Katie Berry.

The acquisition of Bulk Builders Merchants marks the start of expansion plans that will see the company invest in its quarrying business, Johnsons Wellfield, to expand production of its range of products, and seek to increase its number of builders’ merchant branches across the region.

Commenting on the acquisition, Mr Berry, managing director of the Myers Group, said: “Bulk Builders Merchants has an excellent reputation and strong trading base. It is also a family owned business and shares our focus on providing great service. This acquisition marks the start of a period of expansion across the Group that will see us invest in our brands and seek good value acquisitions.”

David Gale, managing director of Bulk Builders Merchants, added: “Over the years we have worked hard as a family to build a great business that supports builders across Leeds. The Myers Group shares our values and we are confident that our customers will continue to get the same great service that they are used to.”
