The UK’s largest distributor of lintels has opened a new specialist depot in Grangemouth to reinforce its market leading reputation.
Buildbase Lintels, which has a £10 million stockholding across the UK, now has a facility in the town’s Wood Street which provides greater product range to meet increasing demand from housebuilders and the wider construction industry.
Lintels are used by builders as a horizontal support across the top of a door or window and the new Grangemouth depot provides bespoke steel lintels from major manufacturers, as well as in-house production and expertise from Harvey Steel Lintels (HSL).
Martin Somers, Buildbase Lintels managing director, said: “This is the biggest change in the business in almost 20 years since it became part of the Grafton Group. We traded via 14 branches for the past decade, so increasing our capacity by 25 per cent in 2015 and expanding the product range across all branches is a significant commitment, both regionally and nationally, to help us improve our service.”
