Bradfords Building Supplies acquires Solo Building Supplies

I am delighted to announce that Bradfords Building Supplies has acquired Archmartin Ltd, trading as Solo Building Supplies.

With twenty employees, Solo Building Supplies is a highly respected business operating from one site in Penzance, South West Cornwall. This acquisition improves our branch coverage in the area and provides a great opportunity to serve other nearby towns.

Solo has been trading for almost 10 years and is renowned for providing the best quality materials and excellent professional advice. The company is a general builder’s merchant specialising in building materials, timber, landscaping, and plumbing and heating products. Also on site is a bathroom and tile showroom in a separate adjacent building.

This deal is great news for both Bradfords and our customers – as we continue to expand our presence in the South West and marks another significant development in our growth ambitions. Solo becomes the 43rd Bradfords Building Supplies branch.

We are pleased that Andy Dommett, the former owner of Solo, and the team, will remain with the business post acquisition.

I am sure you will join me in welcoming the Solo team to Bradfords.
