Kellaway Building Supplies has continued its recent growth with the acquisition of the successful family run business, Marlborough Building Supplies.
This takes the businesses branch network to 13 and gives the company a greater foothold in Wiltshire, following the opening of its Swindon branch in 2003.
Marlborough Building Supplies was opened in 2001 and has grown consistently since, moving to the current site in 2013. As part of the acquisition Marlborough owner Matthew Kiely will remain as Branch Manager and has joined the company’s Senior Management team. The operational staff employed at Marlborough have been retained and Kellaway are actively developing three members of the team – two of which are progressing into management roles and one is in the process of obtaining his LGV C Licence.
Kellaway Managing Director Julian Milligan said: “We are delighted to have acquired Marlborough Building Supplies and would like to welcome the staff who are becoming a part of the Kellaway team. Matt and the team have built a successful and profitable business over the past 10 years or so and we are looking forward to building on this, with them, in the coming years.”
Branch Manager Matt Kiely added “Becoming part of growing Kellaway Building Supplies branch network is an exciting prospect for us, as it will provide; greater stability, enable us to benefit from the improved buying opportunities due to Kellaway’s NBG membership and offers great development opportunities for staff, as Kellaway has such a pedigree for staff training and development.”
