Bradfords Building Supplies has bought Archmartin, trading as Solo Building Supplies.

Solo Building Supplies is a highly respected business operating from one site in Penzance, Cornwall. This acquisition improves Bradfords’ branch coverage in the area and provides a great opportunity to serve other nearby towns.

Solo has been trading for almost ten years and is renowned for providing excellent customer service. It is a general builders' merchant, specialising in building materials, timber, landscaping, and plumbing and heating products. It also has a bathroom and tile showroom in a separate, adjacent building.

David Young, Bradfords Building Supplies Managing Director, said: "I am delighted to welcome Solo into the Bradfords family. The two businesses are a great fit – Bradfords will benefit from Solo’s geographic location, customer base and expertise while Solo will be able to grow and develop its potential as part of a bigger business."

Solo becomes the 43rd branch in the Bradfords Building Supplies network and Bradfords says its acquisition marks another "significant step" in its "ambitious" growth plans.
