Building better, together

We’ve been helping build Britain for over 200 years as a group of some of the building industry’s most popular brands.



Our businesses span the trade, home improvement and DIY markets and our aim is to offer the best for our employees, customers, suppliers and the communities around us which helps bring our strategy to life.

With 20+ businesses in the Group we’ve grown to approximately 28,000 colleagues across more than 2,000 branches, stores and sites around the UK but keep the local communities in which we serve at the heart of what we do.

Just take a look around your house or surroundings and you will see that everything we do is around you.

We have ‘new fashioned’ values which are core to our being. For us, it's a way of working and treating people that makes us who we are.

Our work is underpinned by our 5 Cornerstones and you'll find them in everything we do:
Upholding Family Values
This is what makes us different. We work hard together to deliver results and have some fun along the way. It’s about doing the right thing. We’re straightforward and value honesty, trust and kindness. It’s ‘new-fashioned’ family values built on our heritage.
Keeping People Safe
Safety, for us, is everything. We expect everyone to go home to their families exactly as they arrived at work.
Making decent returns
Making a decent return is less about making money and more about creating value for shareholders, employees, customers and suppliers. And it depends on building business relationships based on trust and respect; strong enough to keep going through bad and good times.
Working for our customers
The success of our business relies on strong relationships. This is about a ‘can do, will do’ attitude and understanding the lifelong value of each customer relationship.
Being the best
Our aim is to set the bar high and make our customers feel special. Our business is built on maintaining good relationships with our customers and suppliers. It’s essential we attract and retain the best people to enable us to operate the best business in every catchment area.
