The business closed all 28 of its branches from 24 March 2020 to 14 April as a result of the Covid-19 lockdown, although all are now trading once again.  

Managing director Edwin Atkinson said: “We are doing our best to follow government advice, whilst balancing the safety of our staff and serving our customers to allow them to continue to operate their own businesses. 

“We recognise our part in the supply chain to the building trades and the need to keep materials available to the construction sector.”
