Expansion for RGB Building Supplies to include new Torquay branch

Published:  12 August, 2015

RGB Building Supplies has announced the construction of a new branch and a re-location of another, as well as the planned opening of a new kitchen and bathroom studio and an increase in its head office space.

A new branch in Torquay and a larger Okehampton branch have been given the go ahead, with both builds due to begin shortly. Each branch will have a varied offering, including general building materials, landscaping and decorating, with the current Okehampton plumbing and heating branch moving to the new premises.

Kevin Fenlon, chief executive of RGB Building Supplies, said: “We had a fantastic year last year, which means that we are now in a position to develop these two sites which were purchased some time ago. Both sites will be re-developed to ensure that our trade and retail customers have a better opportunity to experience working with RGB. There will also be career opportunities to join the RGB group at both branches.”

Additionally, a new kitchen and bathroom studio is being built at RGB’s Exeter branch, which follows on from the opening of the company’s Porthleven branch showroom last year and the recently refurbished studio in South Molton. An increase in space at the company’s Barnstaple head office has also been announced.
