The Mayor of Sutton Coldfield, Cllr Terry Wood officially opened the new Travis Perkins store in Minworth. The new site has led to the creation of 10 new jobs following the relocation from Erdington to secure a bigger site.

The brand new 2.25 acre site includes a tools and plant hire section, up to 50 different types of bricks and an extensive landscaping display. Boasting extensive bricks, timber and blocks, it offers a fast and convenient one hour click and collect service and next day delivery for customers.

Customers can choose to shop online, in branch or by using the new Travis Perkins app. The industry-first app has been designed in conjunction with customers to help them save time and work smarter by enabling them to check and order stock on the go at their personal trade prices in real time from their local branch.

Commenting Terry Wood said “It is great to see that Travis Perkins have opened their new store in Sutton Coldfield, bringing new jobs and investment here, which we greatly appreciate and welcome, I wish them all the success in the future”.

Branch manager Mark Burns said: “We’re really excited to be opening the doors. At 2.25 acres the site is huge and will serve as a one-stop shop for everyone’s building and construction needs. We’re situated in a really ideal location that serves Minworth, Sutton Coldfield and Erdington.

With demand for construction and building at an all-time high, the opening of our new branch couldn’t come at a better time.”

Later in the week, the Royal Town’s Member of Parliament, Andrew Mitchell MP met with Mark Burns and said: “I was delighted to visit the new Travis Perkins Branch at Forge Lane, Minworth following its official opening by our Royal Sutton Coldfield Mayor. It was great to see the investment being made by the company in our local area. It was interesting to meet the manager and staff and to understand more about the business and the opportunities it is providing through apprenticeships and kickstart as well as its efforts to attract a wider, diverse range of people into the building industry.”
