Your Local Independent Builders’ Merchant

Our purpose is to deliver excellence in quality, service and value to both trade and DIY customers. Wherever you are in the UK, you can find a branch that can help with your project from the start through to completion.

Our well-stocked branches have every product you need to get the job done, so you can save time by only shopping in one place. You can pop in, browse and collect products from trusted brands at your local branch, or have them delivered direct to your site, allowing you to stay on the tools, running your project smoothly and on-time.

The knowledgeable teams at your local branch or specialist centres for bricks, timber and roof trusses, are on-hand to give you free, practical, expert advice that you can rely upon. We also give you the best deals through tailored pricing, on the things that you really need.

All of this is supported by the Huws Gray portal, where you can access your account anytime, anywhere. The portal allows you to view and download invoices, statements and PODs, see your order history, make account payments, plus much more.
