Milestone year for General Building Plastics

gb plasticsGeneral Building Plastics (GDP) will celebrate a milestone in April 2015 as the company prepares to mark its 25th anniversary in the market.

The PVC building products supplier was founded in 1990 by Janet Sutherland and has grown over the last 25 years by adding key locations to the operation, including trade counters and offices in Shrewsbury, Walsall, Banbury. GDP’s most recent launch was in Kettering, with plans to open its sixth trade counter in Oswestry later this year.

The company is family-run from its head office in Rugeley, Staffordshire, and supplies PVC products to a host of organisations and businesses ranging from house-builders, property developers, local authorities and housing associations, to installers, homeowners and DIY enthusiasts.

Ms. Sutherland continues to work in the business alongside her son Alan and eldest daughter Wendy Hill – both directors at GDP – who both joined the business in its first year, and now look after all the day-to-day running at the company.

Wendy Hill said:

“Whilst so much has changed in the building and building products industries over the last 25 years, we have remained focused on offering an extensive range of always high quality products at a competitive price. The business has always been ambitious, which has driven our growth and expansion with the addition of our new branches at a steady pace.

“We have also embraced the opportunities available from the ?digital revolution’, with our online ecommerce section of the business website accounting for over 12% of sales, as well as a growing number of followers on Facebook and Twitter too.”

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, GBP will offer a number of special offers, promotions, gifts and prizes to its customers and staff until the end of 2015.

Ms. Hill added:

“We have many customers that have traded with us for over 20 years, and all our staff across our office network are amazingly hardworking and committed, so we want to share our birthday celebrations with our loyal customers, and our amazing team.

“We are delighted to be celebrating 25 years in business and are as proud of our heritage and success today as we were when mum started the business back in 1990.”
