West Building Supplies is expanding into Beverley, East Yorkshire, with the Bridlington-headquartered builders’ merchant to open its fourth site in the Yorkshire region.

Now in its 50th year of trading, the family-owned business has taken a 25-year lease on a 13,986 sq ft premises at Vendridge House in Beverley, with plans to distribute its wide range of building products, as well as timber, plumbing, tools and electrical goods.

It is envisaged a second phase will incorporate a bathroom and kitchen showroom.

The firm’s opening of its fourth depot was backed by advice from regional law firm Andrew Jackson Solicitors.

It follows the relocation of West Building Supplies’ headquarters to modern 100,000 sq ft premises at Bessingby near Bridlington, which offers a full product range along with a kitchen and bathroom showroom.

Chris West, owner of West Building Supplies, said: “There are plans to build thousands of homes in the Beverley area, and our move is a perfect fit as we look to grow across the Yorkshire region.

“We are excited to bring our great customer service, consistent pricing and reliability to customers in the Beverley area.

“We are very happy with the service provided by Andrew Jackson Solicitors and in particular Adrian West, as the sale of the properties was complex and the lease for the Beverley premises was far from straightforward.

“Adrian was a great help explaining all the legal details and terminology in understandable terms and gave sound advice all with a very personable manner.”

Adrian West, property partner with Andrew Jackson Solicitors, added: “It has been a great pleasure to assist the team at West Building Supplies.

“Beverley is a vibrant town and the new premises will enable the business to realise the investment going into the area, whilst building on its existing customer base.”
