Yorkshire-base independent builders merchant Woods of Hornsea has become the latest recruit to the h&b Development Group.
Woods of Hornsea is a single branch mixed merchant based in the Yorkshire coastal town of Hornsea run by husband-and-wife team Nick and Mandy Tudor. The Tudors took over Woods in 2016 when it was a DIY / hardware store with four employees. They have grown the business to a £2million turnover success with 13 staff and a full range of light and heavy side building materials sold from the trade counter and yard. Woods services local builders and tradesmen with delivery facilitated with a fleet of 7.5 tonne crane trucks which are ideally suited to the locality.
“We are very excited and enthusiastic to be joining the h&b family,” said Nick Tudor. “h&b was recommended to us by various people – from other members of the group and contacts in the industry – and when we talked to the team at h&b we wanted to get involved. As well as the great deals we are confident that being part of h&b will give us access to the biggest and best brands in the building industry.” With a branch and office refurbishment and extension and now joining h&b, Woods of Hornsea is looking forward to putting ambitious expansion plans into place.
The h&b Development Group offers smaller merchants a proven route to growth and full group membership. With a basket of deals and the support and guidance of h&b and its partners, members of the h&b Development Group can grow turnover and margin to a point where they can join the main group after reaching key growth marks. This proven gateway to buying group membership is a unique initiative in the merchant sector and has already seen several merchants successfully graduate from the scheme into the main h&b group.
