Family-owned independent Welsh builders’ merchants, Robert Price, has bought Aberdare-based building and roofing suppliers, Builders’ Bitz.
The newly acquired company, which serves customers in the Aberdare and Mountain Ash Valley areas, will become the 23rd branch in the Robert Price group, selling everything from building materials, roofing and timber to tools and workwear.
Although it will be integrating into the Robert Price network, Builders’ Bitz will continue to trade under the Builders’ Bitz banner, but with some new benefits for the customer, including access to Robert Price’s specialist services and an increased stock range availability.
Additionally, Robert Price customers will also benefit from the acquisition, with the new branch increasing coverage in Rhondda Cynon Taf.
Robert Price marketing director at Molly Pike says: “This is an exciting time of growth for both businesses.
“Builders’ Bitz have an excellent reputation for service in the local community, and Robert Price is delighted to welcome the branch and its team into the group.
“Not only will it further expand our existing Robert Price branch reach and lorry fleet, but it will also provide Builders’ Bitz with the opportunity for further growth and development.”
