The builders’ merchant is ploughing funds back into its portfolio, with the £800,00o refurbishment of its Cratfield Road site, changing the layout and enhancing the product offering, as well as creating new jobs.

The branch – a 32,000sq m building on the Morton Hall Industrial Estate - now features a dedicated kitchen and bathroom showroom, complete with a wide selection of modern and traditional product ranges and full-working demonstration models. With the new-look layout, Jewson has also grown its civils and tool hire offering, adding a storage compound for a growing range of equipment.

The addition of Jewson-sister brand Graham, which specialises in plumbing, heating and bathroom supplies, is designed to help turn the branch into a one-stop-shop for local tradespeople.

Branch manager Kirk Broom said of the revamp: “We’ve been serving customers in Bury St Edmunds for 34 years... As the only supplier of civils in the area, it’s essential that we have a stock of products readily available.”

“Our newly-designed branch will help to further improve our service and make sure we have all the products our customers need, whether they choose to click and collect or come to see us in branch.”

The investment has also seen staff numbers across both Jewson and Graham branches rise to 28 people.

Jewson, which is part of the global Saint-Gobain Group, operates more than 600 branches across the UK.
