Minster is set to open a brand new branch in Dundee on 3 May 2016, a move that will strengthen its offering and service in Scotland.

Previously the only branch in Scotland, Minster Glasgow will now concentrate on servicing Scotland’s central belt, while Minster Dundee will serve everywhere north of Perth, Fife, Aberdeen and all the way up to Inverness.

This latest expansion follows the relocation to bigger sites for other Minster branches, with Didcot moving to Challow, and Cambridge to Royston. These developments signal Minster’s intention towards increasing operational productivity and better servicing customers throughout the country.

The Minster Dundee site, previously a Jewson branch for 20 years, will be headed up by Iain Mudie who said: “I am very excited to be starting this new venture with Minster. There are a lot of opportunities in Dundee and the team here are a fantastic bunch who cannot wait to get going.

Strong customer service will be key to our success and our aim is to provide just that to the customers in our area. This is a huge investment from Minster that demonstrates real ambition.”

The Dundee team will collectively bring decades of experience in sales, operations and customer service. The new branch is centrally located close to the A90 and Tay Bridge and will provide excellent access to the main transport links for Scotland.

With a large site to operate from, the Dundee branch will stock an extensive range of specialist solutions such as insulation, drylining, ceilings and roofing, all under one roof.
