H&B’s M&J plans for head office hub

Independent builders merchant M&J Builders Merchants has unveiled the latest step in its strategic growth plan, receiving planning permission for a new 130,000 sq ft storage and distribution hub near its head office branch in Greenock.

The family -owned and -run independent firm, a member of the H&B buying group,  was established in 1999 and runs a timber and mixed light and heavyside business that caters for both public and trade customers from its two branches in Greenock and Largs. It offers a wide range of building materials, backed with experienced, expert staff.

“The new facility will allow us to hold a bigger variety of landscaping and construction materials on the ground, introduce a larger aggregate bagging production, run a more efficient transport service and offer a better experience to new and existing customers,”
says M&J’s MD Mark Rodger. “The additional site will enable us to create more user friendly, customer focussed, collection branch at our existing Greenock site. The extra space allows us to concentrate surplus stock and the high volume traffic of goods in and out at an independent location away from trade and public customers.” The new facility is expected to be operational this summer.
