Andrew Cushing, sales director at Gibbs & Dandy, said: "Gibbs & Dandy Builders’ and Timber Merchant was established in Luton in the 1840s and though we have grown nationally, we remain very proud of our Luton heritage.

“We are therefore delighted to have been selected to supply materials to Luton Borough Council and are committed to providing the highest possible service."

As a business we are continually striving to enhance both the service and customer experience delivered and we are confident that our new local partner will help us achieve this.”
