JTD Promoted


30th Nov 2018


JTD Building Supplies has become the first graduate from H&B’s innovative Development Group into the primary H&B Guying Group. A combination of turnover growth, gold standard levels of compliance, and real improvements in profitability thanks to unrivalled buying deals, have made Yorkshire-based JTD a worthy candidate for elevation to the main H&B group.

JTD was the first member of the new H&B Development Group and MD Tony Sharkey is a keen exponent of its benefits to a developing merchant business. “Joining the group has enabled us to grow and expand profitably; so vital to the business as we opened a brand-new branch and yard in Holmfirth,” he says. “When I started this business there was only one buying group I wanted to be part of: H&B. The challenge for us was to achieve the turnover necessary to access the full buying group. Joining the H&B Development Group has enabled us to achieve that quickly and I would urge any small merchant out there to consider joining.”

Tony Sharkey and the rest of the JTD management team will now be acting as mentors to other merchanting businesses following in their footsteps.

The H&B Development group is a completely new concept for the merchanting industry, offering carefully selected smaller merchants access to offers to a vast range of negotiated deals and a strategically mapped route to growth and success. It has a number of structures and strategies in place to help members to achieve the turnover required to take them to the next level.
