Martin Meech, Travis Perkins Group property director, said: “Our ambition post-recession is to substantially increase trading space over the next five years. This includes a considerable number of Brownfield or implant branches and stores, and more than 30 trade parks. The restructure and subsequent appointments we have made clearly demonstrate our commitment to these growth plans.”
