A few weeks ago, RGB Building Supplies announced that they had acquired TecBuild. The Bodmin Builders merchants has been acquired by the Building Supplies company in order to expand their business.
RGB Building Supplies is a mixed merchant supplier that offers a range of building materials as well as landscaping goods and decorating materials and damp proofing products. The business has been working out of the Devon, Cornwall and Somerset areas for the past 160 years. Therefore, RGB has managed to expand in order to become one of the South West’s leading independent builder’s merchants. Now that they can add the Bodmin branch to thei9r collection of locations, the building supplies merchant will now be operating out of 19 different locations in the South West of England.
TecBuild was formerly owned by Phil and Jo Northey. The former owners are expected to sill carry on being involved in the business now that is has been acquired by RGB Building Supplies. It was also stated that all the TecBuild staff will be kept on at the branch. This is good news for the Bodmin branch workers, and will mean that the former employees will still be able to have some involvement in the business.
The former owners of TecBuild will be working alongside the CEO of RGB Building Supplies, Kevin Fenlon as well as with the Bodmin Branch Manager Steve Best in order to give RGB a boost when expanding into the Bodmin area. TecBuild has previously managed to build a very loyal client base in the area and hopefully this means that RGB will be able to capitalize on that client base in order to succeed in this new location. It has been mentioned that it is important to RGB Building Supplies that the former bosses of TecBuild are still playing an important role in the business, and RGB will be able to offer their larger client base in order to help the Bodmin location flourish.
