Selco Builders Warehouse has unveiled its latest branch in Exeter. The branch is located on Filmer Way in Marsh Barton.
Selco now has a total of 73 branches and has strengthened its presence in the south-west of England, where Selco already has two branches in Bristol.
The official launch of the Exeter branch saw Selco continue its commitment to supporting the local communities in which it operates by donating £3,000 to good causes. Selco awarded £1,000 to Jay’s Aim, which funds defibrillators for community groups across the south west and CPR training, through its Community Heroes scheme. In addition, Selco donated £2,000 to its nominated charity Cancer Research UK.
The official opening also saw a special darts event where customers and colleagues were given the chance to play nine darts challenges against two big names from the sport – rising star and world number 16 Ryan Searle and former BDO World Champion and current Sky Sports pundit Mark Webster.
Howard Luft, Selco’s chief executive, said: “We are committed to a major branch expansion strategy and Exeter is the next step on that programme.
“The number of tradespeople using our unique offering is growing all the time and this is another area where we can offer that one-stop shop for the trade.
“As a genuine multi-channel builders’ merchant, we want to give tradespeople the chance to get their building materials in the most convenient way possible to them, whether that be through branches or through our growing digital offering.
“We are here to serve the trade and meet their every need and we are thrilled to be open in Exeter.”
