The official opening of our Rotherham branch

We were delighted to welcome the local mayor, Cllr Jenny Andrews, and the Mayoress, Jeanette Mallinder, to an official ribbon cutting ceremony at our brand new Rotherham branch.

The official opening of our 10th branch follows a wave of investment, with 250k pumped into the existing Ossett branch to provide a new trade counter and office space, a renovation of our Blyth site and a brand new branch in Morpeth.

We held an official opening day to welcome the branch into our James Burrell family, attended by customers and suppliers such as Stonemarket, Ox and Michelmersh, giving local tradespeople a chance to see the new facilities now on offer and take advantage of the product discounts, supplier deals, free food and giveaways.

Our brand new South Yorkshire site of 2.5 acres features facilities including; a 264sqm office and trade counter area, 28,000sq ft of warehouse, multiple on site vehicles and brings 15 jobs to the area. The facilities allow for the branch to stock an extensive range of civils, timber, insulation and heavyside materials and to further enhance our customer offering in the Yorkshire area.

Cllr Jenny Andrews said: 'I'm really passionate about developments happening in Rotherham, so it is fantastic to see such an established builders' merchant bring their service to the town and I know James Burrell is going to be a fantastic addition to our business community.'

Richard Day, our Regional Sales Manager, added: 'It's a really exciting time for James Burrell with us opening our most southern branch and showcasing our reliable service to the Rotherham and South Yorkshire building trade. It's also great to have the support of the local council and to have Cllr Jenny Andrews carry out the official ribbon cutting. It was brilliant to welcome so many customers through the door at our opening day and we look forward to building upon trading relationship. We will be hosting several supplier mornings with exclusive opening deals in the coming months, so keep an eye out on our social media for further information.'
