Directors and managers of Buttle's enjoyed a change of scenery by holding their first quarterly management meeting of 2015 at Kilsaran International in County Meath, Ireland.

The St Albans-based timber and builders’ merchant has reported strong sales of the Irish group's paving products since becoming a stockist at the beginning of 2015. Kilsaran has an agreement with the h&b buying group, of which Buttle's is a member.

William Naylor, Buttle's managing director, said: "Like us, Kilsaran is a family-owned business offering excellent service and some very innovative products."
