Operating from one site in Penzance, South West Cornwall, the acquisition of Solo Building Supplies improves Bradfords’ branch coverage in the area and provides a great opportunity to serve other nearby towns.

Solo has been trading for almost 10 years and is a general builder’s merchant specialising in building materials, timber, landscaping, and plumbing and heating products with the added benefit of a bathroom and tile showroom in a separate adjacent building on the same site.

Bradfords Building Supplies managing director, David Young said: ‘I am delighted to welcome Solo into the Bradfords family. The two businesses are a great fit – Bradfords will benefit from Solo’s geographic location, customer base and expertise whilst Solo will be able to grow and develop its potential as part of a bigger business.

Solo becomes the 43rd branch in the Bradfords Building Supplies network.
