The company is part of Travis Perkins Plc, a group which includes many leading brands including BSS Industrial, PTS, Keyline, CCF, Wickes, Benchmarx, Toolstation, Tile Giant and more.

Travis Perkins supplies the construction industry with a wide range of high quality products, including all major recognised brands. Products include bricks and blocks, door furniture, sealants and adhesives, timber and sheet materials, paints, brushes & rollers and landscaping materials. Travis Perkins also supplies a wide range of electrical products, including cables, pendants and baton holders.

The company’s collection of tools for hire, meanwhile, is extensive and ranges from general tools, dumpers and diggers to power lighting, skips and toilets. The tool hire division also provides a range of access equipment, ideal for those working at height, from step ladders and trench struts, to roofing ladders and boss alloy towers.

At Travis Perkins Tool and Equipment Hire, customers are sure to find everything they require, with 5 star safety service coming as standard.

A spokesperson for Travis Perkins, said:

“Travis Perkins have been supplying building materials to the trade for over 200 years and we are now one of the largest suppliers to the UK’s building and construction industry with a national network of more than 600 branches.

“We provide more than 100,000 products to trade professionals, including building materials, plumbing and heating, landscaping materials, timber and sheet materials, painting and decorating, dry lining and insulation, doors and joinery, and hand and power tools – many of which are always available from stock.

“We look after the needs of the Trade. From personal protective equipment to heavy building materials like bricks and blocks, whatever you need, when and wherever you need it, Travis Perkins is like you – built for the trade.”

Throughout all its operations, Travis Perkins prides itself on pricing, its products, convenience, availability and its tool hire division and with everything it does, it provides “the best service, even on the smallest jobs.”

As a modern, forward thinking and responsive company, Travis Perkins is aware that its clients are interested in discovering more about the industry around them. For this reason, the Travis Perkins website not only informs clients about the latest products, but also updates them on the regulations which help to govern the industry.

A spokesperson for Travis Perkins, said:

“At any given time there will be a number of things to do with the trade that you are interested in finding out more about. You might want to know a little more about a particular range or product area, so within the Trade Information section you can view all of our current brochures, request them by post to keep in your van or to give to your customers, or save paper and download them.

“You might also be interested in keeping informed about industry regulations, so within the building regulations page you’ll find useful links to government websites for your area of the country. Travis Perkins works with a select number of industry partners in order to bring additional services and information to our customers.”

In addition to its extensive range of services, Travis Perkins regularly supports local communities and donates to worthwhile causes throughout the UK. In 2014 the company donated more than £1.8 million to those in need of help, whilst this year the company will be fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Travis Perkins also operates the Payroll Giving practice, which allows employees to donate directly from their monthly salary. The company then matches these donations, whilst a Travis Perkins colleague lottery and salary sacrifice scheme provides additional support for worthwhile causes.

A spokesperson said:

“Travis Perkins greatly appreciates the efforts and kind donations made by its employees, customers and suppliers, and hopes to equal or better its donation to charities this year.”
