A North-east builders merchant has scooped a prestigious industry award.

GPH Builders Merchants, which has premises in Inverurie and Westhill, reached the finals of two categories at the national Builders Merchants Awards for Excellence and scooped the Best Builders’ Merchants Hard Landscaping Display Award.

The awards attracted entries from all over the UK and GPH was the only Scottish company to make it to the finals.

The company was also a finalist in the Independent Builders’ Merchant of the Year category and GPH directors attended the award ceremony in London.

The firm, which has been operating in the North-east for 30 years, recently upgraded its landscaping range to offer customers some extra inspiration for their garden and have an experienced team on board to offer a new design service to help customers create their ideal garden.

Sales and Marketing Director of GPH, Nikki Mortimer said: “We are delighted to have made it to the finals of the awards, and to walk away with the recognition for our landscaping displays is fantastic. It is an achievement for the entire team that has worked so hard over the years.”

GPH Builders Merchants offers extensive ranges of building supplies including landscaping, timber and joinery, roofing, civils, clothing and safety wear, power tools, plumbing and plant and tool hire. For more information visit
