Huws Gray buys Milford Building Supplies

Independent builders’ merchants Huws Gray Group has bought Milford Building Supplies, based in Leeds, as part of its continuing, ambitious expansion plans.

Milford Building Supplies was set up 41 years ago, on a single site on Cardigan Road in Headingley. The business grew steadily through the 80’s and 90’s and a second site was acquired in 1997, on Skinner Lane in the Mabgate area of the city.

Matthew Owen, head of acquisitions for Huws Gray Group said “We are delighted to be actively on the acquisition trail again, and optimistic about the future. Milford Building Supplies, is a merchant with similar ‘customer-first’ values to Huws Gray, so great customer service will remain a focus for the business”

John Middleton-Walker, Executive Chairman at Milford, added “We are delighted to be handing the business over to safe hands. Huws Gray are a progressive company, who will take Milford Building Supplies forward. They also recognise the value staff can add to a business, as being key to its success”.

The acquisition is the first in the Leeds area for Huws Gray and significantly strengthens the company’s presence in Yorkshire.
