Chandlers Building Supplies, which has operated in Thanet for more than 12 years, has unveiled the results of a £400,000 investment.
The large-scale investment by the independent builders merchant has been used for the relocation of its branch from Ocivan Way, Westwood, to a newly developed operation at the Old Timber Yard, Ramsgate.
While also bringing new employment opportunities, the extensive footprint of the store and yard allows the outlet to offer an expanded range of building products,
Unique to the Thanet branch is a dedicated self-builder advisor, Lee Blythe. Lee helps self-builders and developers source and manage their building projects.
John Rose, branch manager, said: “This is a large investment and has delivered a brand new offering with great scope for future growth. As part of this expansion we will also be looking to increase our team and will be looking to recruit and train locally.”
Chandlers Building Supplies is well-known in the trade as a source of knowledge and advice for self builders and smaller developers.
