GPH Builders Merchants has invested more than half a million pounds into the creation of a new facility which is located in Stonehaven, north-east Scotland. This new facility is designed to give customers easy access to professional and DIY building and landscaping materials. The company also has branches in Inverurie and Westhill. This new location will be on Spurryhillock Industrial Estate after acquiring MacDougal & Masson in 2015.
The third GPH Builders Merchants was opened officially on Friday 3rd November 2017 by the Minister for Local Government and Housing, Kevin Stewart MSP. At the opening of the facility, Mr. Stewart was available to answer questions from local business people on topics such as planning consent, local infrastructure and affordable housing. The independent builder’s merchants has been working to serve the building and DIY markets in the north east for nearly 35 years. The company works to offer a complete range of materials and also runs an extensive plant hire business.
GHP have worked to enhance their Stonehaven site in 2016 with the addition of extra racking that means the company is able to hold a wider range of products. The facility has also been altered to offer improved lighting and larger bays that makes delivery and collection of loose materials easier.
The next phase of the business’ £500,000+ investment included the expansion and upgrade of a new two-storey, state-of-the-art facility. This purpose built building will include a new retail space as well as a bright and larger stock area with additional improvements made to the yard and further expansion in this area. This investment will also create a dedicated plant and tool hire site. GPH has received a warm welcome in Stonehaven despite the challenging economic circumstances that have been experienced in the area, all of the employees that worked at the location for MacDougall & Masson have continued to work for GPH which has been beneficial during the renovation works as well as an attraction for old and new customers.
