RGB Building Supplies officially opened its newest branch on 25 May, when the Executive Lead for Business at Torbay Council cut the ribbon at the builders' merchant’s new Torquay location.

Throughout the morning, a number of different leading suppliers, including DeWalt, Hitachi, Polypipe, Keylite, Dale and Crown, were giving demonstrations and talking to visitors.

RGB Building Supplies has been operating in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset for over 160 years and has grown to become one of the leading independent builders' merchants in the South West of England. The new Torquay branch will be supplying a wide range of building materials, landscaping goods, decorating products and plumbing and heating supplies.

Mike Curtis, branch manager at RGB Torquay, said: "We're delighted to have brought RGB to Torquay and would like to thank Councillor Haddock for attending to officially cut the ribbon. Our team has a lot of knowledge of the industry and the products we supply so are happy to give advice. We look forward to being part of the business community and welcoming people through the doors."
