Sydenhams acquires Tipadel builders’ merchants

Published:  06 April, 2018

Sydenhams have acquired Tipadel Limited builders’ merchants based in Frome, Somerset.

The acquisition brings the total of Sydenhams Builders Merchant branches up to 15, with 31 branches overall including timber centres, tool & plant hire centres, kitchen & bathroom showrooms, flooring and the timber engineering side of the business.

The single branch merchant, which includes ‘The Studio’ kitchen and bathroom showroom, will begin trading as Sydenhams from now on.

Chris Carter, Purchasing Director of Sydenhams said: “We are very excited about bringing Tipadel Limited into the Sydenhams Group; it’s a natural fit for us as there are a lot of synergies between the two companies. Tipadel is a fantastic family-run merchant who have a very loyal customer base and we look forward to continuing their good work and growing the business to enhance both the service and product offering they currently give.

“Like Sydenhams, Tipadel is a very well respected name in the local community. They are a well-established business in the area, having traded for over 30 years. Customers will still see the same friendly faces, with Clive Whittaker and his team continuing to run the branch. Over the coming months, with our network of Sydenhams branches close by we will be able to offer customers a huge choice of products for both the trade and DIY market.”
