Haverhill Buildbase staff celebrate being the best of the best

It has been named as the best among the 175 Buildbase branches across the country.

And they have every reason to be proud because last year, Buildbase nationally was crowned National Builders’ Merchant of the Year at the prestigious annual Builders Merchants Awards for Excellence.

It was the fourth time the company has won the award in the past six years.

Tony Archer, branch manager at Buildbase Haverhill, said: “We’ve been part of the Haverhill building community for more than 50 years, so it’s fantastic to be recognised for the job we do.

“We’re all about our people and our customers, responding to what trades people need and building a strong local reputation.”

The branch started out as an independent builders’ merchant in 1964.

It was bought by Buildbase in 2003 and the two-acre site now employs 22 staff.

It has since developed to become a one-stop-shop for all building materials and has a Hirebase integrated into the site for plant and tool hire.

Last year an Electricbase was added to its services, providing an extensive range of electrical supplies.
