This year, Lliw Building Supplies Ltd celebrated 25 years in business, serving the building trade, local authority, self-build and DIY markets. Since 1991, the firm has offered a complete range of building materials and roofing products, including Midland Lead’s BBA-accredited machine cast lead.
From its branch in Pontardawe, close to the city of Swansea, the company operates a fleet of six vehicles and employs 23 staff members across a 3.5acre site on the Alloy Industrial Estate.
One of those 23 is branch manager, Rob Williams, who has been with Lliw Building Supplies Ltd for over 15 years. Commenting on the company’s relationship with Midland Lead, Rob says: “Midland Lead has been a first choice supplier long before I joined the team, we have built a great relationship with them over the years. They have a good product and the team is always friendly and happy to help. We stock their competitively priced machine cast lead, which is manufactured on-site at Midland Lead.”
Lliw Building Supplies Ltd has a strong roofing customer base with the company’s lead sales being predominantly driven by this. The company is proud to have established a reputation for being one of the best service providers in the area. Rob says: “We have seen a growth in our lead business over the last couple of years.
With impressive sales results, Rob says that business is great right now: “Lliw Building Supplies Ltd will continue working with Midland Lead and will step strongly into 2017 as a progressive independent builder’s merchant, offering its customers quality building materials, delivered on time and at competitive prices.”
