Sydenhams has announced that it has acquired Guernsey Building Supplies (GBS) based in St Peters Port, Guernsey, as of 1 August, 2016.
GBS will remain trading as Guernsey Building Supplies for the foreseeable future, and marks an exciting move for Sydenhams as it is the company’s first branch on the Channel Islands.
Chris Carter, purchasing director of Sydenhams, said: “We are very excited about bringing GBS into the Sydenhams Group. We have great experience with off-shore trading from our branches on the Isle of Wight and we look forward to applying some of that knowledge and experience to our new venture in Guernsey. GBS is a fantastic business and we look forward to continuing their good work and growing the business by putting in some investment to enhance both the service and product offering.”
This acquisition brings Sydenhams up to 14 builders’ merchant branches located across the South, and 29 branches overall including its Hire Centres, Kitchen & Bathroom showrooms, Flooring and Timber Engineering side of the business.
