Following the merger last year of High Wycombe-based Grant & Stone and Merkko Builders Merchants in Abingdon, Merkko is relaunching as Grant & Stone Merkko Civils & Building. The builders merchants was acquired by the Independent Builders Merchants Group, which also includes Grant & Stone.

Phil Lynch, Regional Manager at Grant & Stone Merkko Civils & Building, said: “The merger between Grant & Stone and Merkko Builders Merchants was an exciting time and brought together two companies that have a shared ethos of providing quality materials and excellent service. Customers gained access to increased technical and product expertise, as well as the opportunity to benefit from an enhanced range of materials.

“The rebranding to Grant & Stone Merkko Civils & Building has reinforced the partnership, and we look forward to welcoming new and current customers through the doors to celebrate with us.”

Grant & Stone Merkko Civils & Building is located on Kingston Business Park in Abingdon.
