National builders’ merchant UGS has invested nearly £300,000 in improving its North West depot near Leigh (near Warrington), introducing new product lines with a focus on paving, as well as general building materials.
The investment at the depot, in Pocket Nook Lane off Newton Road in Lowton, has enabled UGS to improve the branch’s product offering to the general public and smaller builders, especially for collected items.
The company has also provided additional parking, a newly resurfaced yard, improved product storage, as well as refurbished offices and trade counter, complete with new landscaping display areas, a new delivery truck and signage.
Commenting on the project, UGS managing director Paul Beaman said: “This depot is key to our presence in the North West and the investment enables us to build our service to the DIY and local construction market, while continuing our excellent track record in regional civil engineering projects.”
Describing itself as “the fastest growing independent UK builders’ merchant”, UGS has 207 employees and has acquired 14 outlets since its formation in 1995: Banbury (HQ), Shipston on Stour, Birmingham, Norwich, Ipswich, Kirkby in Ashfield, Hucknall, Cardiff, Cross Hands (Llanelli), Exeter, Newcastle on Tyne, Chesterfield and Braintree.
