Published:  06 August, 2014

Drakes Plumbing Supplies has recently added an eighth branch to its Kent and Sussex network, following the acquisition of A&C Plumbing Supplies in Whitstable.

“Whitstable is a great addition to Drakes’ branch network. Established in 1983, Drakes values personal service," said managing director Andy Clark. "We believe that Whitstable’s plumbing customers will appreciate our knowledge and professionalism, coupled with our keen prices!”

Drakes’ founder and chairman David Aisher added: “Our new Whitstable branch is part of Drakes’ strategic growth plan. Expect to see more announcements and locations across the South East soon.”
