Kellaway Building Supplies named as finalist for national award

Kellaway Building Supplies have been shortlisted as one of three finalists in this year’s Independent Builders’ Merchant of the Year at the Builder Merchant News Awards for Excellence. As a national award, the panel of judges evaluates entries from independent merchants with 11-25 branches. The winner will be confirmed at the ceremony on the 23rd November in the London ceremony.

2017/18 has proved to be another notable year for Kellaway, following the relocation of their Ashton branch to Bedminster.

The shortlisting for this award serves to reinforce Kellaway’s values as the merchant of choice within the industry and help achieve their goal of being the ‘Merchant of Choice’ through a focus on building excellent partnerships with suppliers and delivering exceptional customer service.

Managing Director, Julian Milligan stated “I am delighted Kellaway has been nominated for the Independent Builders’ Merchant of the Year award. This year has been a very successful one for us and this award recognises the company’s commitment to be the Merchant of Choice for customers, suppliers and employees.”

Kellaway Building Supplies supports Stonehouse family for DIY SOS: The Big Build

Kellaway Building Supplies has donated materials to a local family in need as part of the BBC 1 series DIY SOS: The Big Build.

In April 2016, whilst holidaying in Cyprus, with his partner Ella and daughters Iris (3) & Olivia (8), Ben slipped and fell head first into the shallow end of a pool, tragically breaking his neck in three places.

After months of treatment in both Cyprus and Germany (Ben was resuscitated for hours on an airport runway) he was finally flown back to the UK, where the Salisbury Spinal Unit made amazing progress with him over the next 12 months.

Despite his life-changing injuries there is hope: If Ben could return home he would be reunited with his family and could even work from home again as a project manager. But for this dream to become a reality, his home needed to be adapted.

Kellaway Building Supplies were able to donate many materials with a value of almost £4000, to the project to support Ben and his family. The show airs 3rd October 2018, 8pm BBC One.
