Lords Group Trading plc, the builders merchant group, has acquired roofing merchant Advance Roofing Supplies Limited.
Established in 1994, Advance Roofing Supplies is an independent supplier of roofing materials, specialising in pitched and flat roofing sales to local and national customers. Currently operating from two locations, Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire and Long Marston in Hertfordshire, Advance Roofing Supplies will further strengthen the Lords Group’s Merchanting division, increasing product range, and expanding the Group’s customer base.
The plan is, in due course, to expand the Advance Roofing Supplies brand via implants into relevant merchanting locations, starting with the Beaconsfield site which itself is currently undergoing an extensive redevelopment to enable extended product range and capacity.
Shanker Patel, CEO of Lords, said: “The acquisition of Advance Roofing Supplies further strengthens our service capabilities to existing customers and will offer significant synergies with our Merchanting division. We are delighted to bring Advance Roofing Supplies into the Group, and welcome their 15 employees to our team, as we continue to focus on serving our customers with a wider range of products and services.”
