Readymix firm buys Bulk Builders Merchants

A Huddersfield-based building products and services company behind the Readymix brand has acquired Bulk Builders Merchants in Leeds.

Myers Group is a family-owned business that operates companies spanning quarrying and concrete production to builders merchants and skip hire. The business employs 350 people across Yorkshire, has a turnover of £40m and is managed by fourth generation members of the Myers family, James and Katie Berry.

The acquisition of Bulk Builders Merchants marks the start of expansion plans that will lead to the company investing in its quarrying business, Johnsons Wellfield, to expand production of its range of products, and seek to increase its number of builders merchants branches across the region.

James Berry, managing director of the Myers Group, said: "Bulk Builders Merchants has an excellent reputation and strong trading base. It is also a family owned business and shares our focus on providing great service. This acquisition marks the start of a period of expansion across the group that will see us invest in our brands and seek good value acquisitions."

The Myers Group operates the Readymix brand, which was founded in 1959 and now operates four plants in Huddersfield, Brighouse, Skipton and Penistone.
