IBMG Acquisition

This acquisition continues IBMG’s strategy of developing its divisions through a combination of acquisition, new site development and organic growth. Strategically it strengthens member company, RGB Building Supplies’ south west division, extending its presence in Cornwall and providing a strong platform for further growth across the Redruth area.

Culturally, both companies are highly aligned, sharing a common vision, independent ethos and commitment to providing the highest standards of customer service.

Cornish Fixings will join RGB Building Supplies and Jon Sawyer, Cornish Fixing’s owner, will continue in the business, working with RGB’s Managing Director, Andy Gamble and Chief Executive, Kevin Fenlon to grow RGB’s presence in Redruth, Cornwall.

Andy Gamble, Managing Director of RGB said, “We are delighted to welcome Jon and the Cornish Fixings team to the Group. We have much in common, so this is a strong and logical partnership. We are delighted to be able to strengthen the provision of our services in the Redruth area, for the benefit of our customers.”

Jon Sawyer, Cornish Fixings (Redruth)’s Founder, “We are excited to be joining RGB and look forward to working closely with Andy and the RGB team. I am confident that this acquisition will provide an excellent home for both our customers and our people who will thrive within a highly respected, independent builders merchant focused on excellent customer service.”
