The National Buying Group (NBG) is adding to its list of partners yet again, as it announces the recruitment of London-based merchant Abbeygate Builders Merchants Ltd.

Specialising in timber, aggregates, building materials, tools and fixings, Abbeygate, which serves West London’s contractors, opened its doors in 1992.

Abbeygate’s fleet of mechanical off-load vehicles allows it to deliver a diverse range of materials, including lintels, bricks and blocks and insulation throughout London and the surrounding areas.

Abbeygate has continued to grow for the last 27 years and new developments in the coming months will see the company move branch and roll out a new E-commerce offering, Abbeygate Online.

Richard Cooney, director at Abbeygate, said: “Joining NBG has come at the perfect time for us, and we look forward to reaping the benefits of being part of the group.

“NBG will allow us to remain in the loop and give us access to a community of like-minded merchants working together. It’s essential to have those connections in today’s market, which is why NBG is the perfect fit for Abbeygate.”

NBG managing director, Nick Oates, said: “Abbeygate provides a high-class service to its customers and has steadily built a reputation as one of the area’s go-to merchants. We’re both excited for the partnership and are looking forward to working together.”
