Travis Perkins to relocate to low-carbon site
Builders’ merchant Travis Perkins is set to relocate one of its branches in Gloucestershire to a larger and low carbon site.
The chain will open at a new premises in Mead Road in Cheltenham on 29 November next door to its previous location, which it traded from for more than 50 years.
The new branch is 2.5 acres in size and will have a heavy goods yard set to be completed in March 2022.
The outlet will also be one of the company’s low-carbon sites, as it seeks to reduce carbon emissions output across its operations. It will be equipped with charging points for its fleet of electric forklift trucks, solar panels and heat source pumps.
The store will include a showroom for the group’s Benchmarx kitchen brand, a new plumbing, heating and bathroom range, a tool hire service and a hard landscaping display. Customers will be able to collect products ordered online from the store.
Branch manager Sean Watson said: “After occupying the previous site for over 50 years, this relocation means we can upgrade and accommodate more customers, better serve the local community and offer a modern working environment for our colleagues.
Travis Perkins is the UK’s largest distributor of building materials to the building, construction and home improvement markets. With 20,000+ colleagues, Travis Perkins operates from over 1,500+ branches, stores and sites around the UK.
