Emerys Timber and Builders Merchant Join h&b

16th Jan 2019


Midlands-based independent merchant Emerys Timber and Builders Merchant is the latest recruit to h&b buying group, joining a growing partnership of independent merchants located throughout the UK.

h&b merchant members are committed to collectively improve profitability and opportunities for their individual businesses through better buying.

Emery’s is the perfect h&b Partner: independent, with strong local roots around its Stoke on Trent and Telford branches, and a sound mixed merchant business model. Part of the Joseph Parr Group established in 1883. The company has traditionally had a specialism as a timber merchant but now operates a truly mixed merchant business including kitchen and bathrooms with a new showroom opening at the Telford branch late last year.

MD James Hipkins is clear that membership of h&b will bring distinct benefits to the business, price is not the only benefit that Emerys expects from h&b membership. Being part of a successful group like h&b will help us secure allocations and ensure our supply lines, especially at the moment with product shortages and the uncertainty around supply post-Brexit. Being inside the h&b family not only protects the business, it also offers synergies within our group with others that are h&b members. Emerys is also anticipating improved and closer relationships with h&b suppliers, working with them in partnership to build credibility, support and improved alliances.
