Huws Gray acquires Minera Building Supplies

Published:  02 November, 2015

Huws Gray has completed the purchase of Minera Building Supplies for an undisclosed sum.

Minera Building Supplies is the second acquisition in as many months for the Anglesey headquartered builders’ merchant, following the acquisition of R W Almond Builders Merchants in September.

The acquisition of Minera Building Supplies, which includes its ready-mixed operations, will see Huws Gray opening its third site in the Wrexham area, further strengthening its presence in North Wales.

Dewi Morris, a director at Huws Gray, welcomed the acquisition. He said: "As a company, we are always looking for opportunities to extend our branch network and firmly believe that Minera Building Supplies is a perfect fit for us in terms of location and growth potential. Bringing Minera Building Supplies on board, alongside our existing locations in Rhostyllen and our brick distribution in Llay, significantly strengthens our presence in the Wrexham and Chester area.

“We want to continue to build on the fantastic work the Rennie family have done here at Minera Building Supplies over the last 35 years. And we’re looking forward to working with the existing team to develop the site.”

Derek Rennie from Minera Building Supplies said: “We’re proud of what we’ve built here in Minera. We’re a family owned business specialising in serving the local people of Minera and beyond with quality building materials.

“We’re so pleased to be leaving the business in such good hands. Huws Gray is such a forward-thinking, progressive and values-driven company, and we believe that this is the start of an exciting new chapter for Minera Building Supplies.”

Terry Owen, managing director at Huws Gray, added: “We’d like to thank Derek and Josephine at Minera Building Supplies for their cooperation and for the positive reception we’ve received as a company. We’re extremely delighted with the recent acquisitions in Wrexham and Formby; there are exciting times ahead for all of us involved with the company.”
