Beers buys rival Bromborough Paints' merchant business
Bromborough Paints, founded by Harry Wellings in 1948, believes the sale of its builders merchant business is in the 'best interest of staff and customers alike'.

Beers, which operates out of branches in Liverpool, Warrington, Heswall and Hooton, is a 90-year-old family business and will take on 20 staff at the Eastham site.

A spokesman for Bromborough Paints said: "We believe Beers are, like us, a long established family business with a similar philosophy to ourselves in the way we've conducted our relationship with our customers and suppliers over the last sixty years."

Bromborough Paints, whose founder passed away aged 95 in 2007, will continue to develop its wholesale paint and wallcoverings business and plans to expand its decorators merchant network.

Its Chester depot is being relocated to a larger unit and new branches in Northwich and Lancaster will be opened early this year bring them to a total of ten decorators merchant outlets from Shrewsbury in the Midlands to Kendal in the north.
