BSS Industrial has opened a new branch in Inverness. The trade counter, which is BSS Industrial’s 64th location, sits alongside an existing branch of builders’ merchant Keyline.

Opened in December, the shared space has created a large trade counter area with a higher proportion of product on shelving. The branch will be supported by overnight deliveries from BSS Industrial’s National Distribution Centre at Magna Park, Leicestershire.

Steve Higgins, regional director at BSS Industrial, explained: “Inverness and the surrounding area is home to a thriving industrial sector which spans a variety of markets. In order to meet the needs of the region’s businesses, especially the many food and beverage manufacturers, we have decided to open an Inverness branch, making it our sixth in Scotland.”

BSS Inverness will be managed by Garry Hopkins, who has over 30 years of experience within the industry, most recently as an account manager at BSS Industrial covering the Inverness and Dundee areas.

The branch is located at 25 Harbour Road, Inverness, IV1 1SY.
