Chandlers Building Supplies has unveiled the fruits of a £400,000 large-scale investment.

The investment by the independent builders’ and roofers’ merchant has facilitated the relocation of its branch from Ocivan Way in Margate to a newly developed operation at the Old Timber Yard in Ramsgate.

While also bringing new employment opportunities to the area, the extensive footprint of the new store and yard allows the outlet to offer a vastly expanded range of roofing products.

Unique to the Thanet branch is self-builder and roofing advisor, Lee Blythe, who is a source of knowledge to help roofers, builders and developers source and manage their roofing projects.

John Rose, Thanet branch manager, said: “This investment has delivered a brand new offering with great scope for future growth. As part of this expansion we have expanded our roofing offering too and will be running some great trade days and promotions.”
