Builders’ merchant Jewson has opened a new 22,000 sq ft branch in Northampton. The branch, located on the Kings Heath Industrial Estate, forms part of a new Trade Park, and is located alongside outlets of Jewson sister companies Graham, The Plumbers’ Merchant, and tile supplier, CTD.
With a wide range of products and services, the new Trade Park will act as a one-stop-shop for all building, plumbing, heating and tiling needs. Trade customers can also have a single account for Jewson and Graham, making buying much easier.
The site of the new Trade Park has undergone an extensive £1.5m transformation with the help of local building contractor 7formation, having been vacant for the last three years. The site now also houses a new purpose built storage zone, and a regional sales centre for Jewson.
Mark Rayfield, chief executive of Jewson, Graham and CTD, said: “The UK’s construction sector is experiencing a period of growth, and with its central location, Northampton is at the very heart of it, making it the ideal site for the new Trade Park.
“By housing Jewson along with Graham and CTD, at the same address, customers can visit one site to purchase all their building materials and supplies. This is just one of many ways we aim to help our customers get what they need to get the job done, and help simplify the supply chain for the UK’s construction industry.”
Jewson is set to open more branches as part of the new Trade Park concept over the coming months, having launched another park in Gloucester in early January.
